New Jurassic World arena experience announced

Published on: 26th January 2018

Feld Entertainment and Universal Brand Development to collaborate on the live-touring show.

Scheduled to launch autumn 2019 in the United States and continuing globally, the live arena experience will feature a herd of life-size dinosaurs up to 40-feet in length. Using state-of-the-art projection mapping, fans will be transported right onto Isla Nublar, and with the addition of sophisticated animatronics and performer-operated characters, the dinosaurs will literally be the biggest stars of the show as the story is told through human and dinosaur interaction.

Jurassic World, with a worldwide box-office gross of more than $1.67b, ranks as the fourth-biggest movie release of all time. The second installment in the film franchise – Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom – arrives in UK cinemas on 15th June, and in US cinemas on 22nd June.

To bring the dinosaur world to life off the big screen, Feld Entertainment is breaking down the traditional arena barriers that typically exist between the audience and the live action. For the first time in an arena setting, fans can experience the wonder of the Jurassic World franchise up close and in their hometown.

Vince Klaseus, president, Universal Brand Development, commented: “Fans around the world continue to tell us they want more ways to experience Jurassic World, and the thrilling action and larger-than-life experience of this live arena tour gives them the opportunity to engage in an all new and exciting way. Feld Entertainment is best-in-class at creating spectacular live experiences, and this show is able to meet the high expectations of fans worldwide who are craving more interaction with Jurassic World dinosaurs.”
