A Jurassic World live show is in development, bringing life-size dinosaurs to arenas around the world.
Feld Entertainment has partnered Universal Brand Development to develop the live-touring show inspired by the Jurassic World film franchise. Feld will concept, produce and tour the multi-year arena show, which is scheduled to launch in late 2019 in the US before continuing globally.
The show will feature a herd of life-size dinosaurs extending up to 12m long. It will use projection mapping, animatronics and performer-operated characters to create a story told through human and dinosaur interaction.
Vince Klaseus, president of Universal Brand Development, said: “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.”
Feld will build and rehearse the live Jurassic World experience at their studios in Florida. The company’s facility is 54,000 sq m large and includes on-site design and fabrication shops. Its previous productions include Disney On Ice, Sesame Street Live, Marvel Universe Live and Monster Jam.
Kenneth Feld, CEO of Feld Entertainment, said: “The live Jurassic World arena experience will create new ways for fans to engage with one of the world’s most popular franchises.
“Feld Entertainment has the expertise and experience to bring this iconic franchise to life through an innovative format in an immersive arena setting coupled with a unique narrative that includes iconic locations and fan favourite dinosaurs – creating edge-of-your-seat, live entertainment that is a mix between a stunt show and a 3D thrill attraction.”
