As The Bourne Stuntacular continues with technical rehearsals at Universal Orlando resort, a video has been released giving visitors at home a sneak peek of the new stunt show.
This new stunt show combines storytelling, extreme stunts, new technology and practical effects that fully immerse visitors into the world of Jason Bourne.
Universal Orlando resort released this virtual sneak peek on June 29, which features a behind-the-scenes look at how the show came to life, as well as interviews and a first look at the show.
New technology immerses the guest into the world of Bourne
The Bourne Stuntacular also uses cutting-edge technology such as automated vehicle tracking systems. Pin-point accurate projection mapping projects images on top of moving scenes. This will mean guests cannot tell when the live-action ends and the cinema begins.
The show features a 3,640 square foot LED screen in one of the largest structures created for a Universal show. It took eight months of rehearsals to perfect the intricate manoeuvres and stunts, including a 22 feet free-fall.
To protect visitors and staff members, enhanced cleaning will take place between each show. All visitors will have to wear a mask during the show, and there will be spaces between each party in the theatre.
Developed with the Bourne filmmakers
The Bourne Stuntacular was developed with the filmmakers behind the popular Bourne film franchise to create an original storyline.
“It was so rewarding to work closely with the Universal Orlando team to create an experience that is authentic to the Bourne films,” said Frank Marshall, Producer of the Bourne franchise. “After watching the show several times and providing the team with creative input, I can truly say The Bourne Stuntacular not only stays true to the essence of the films but also delivers next-level action that will make guests feel like they are by Jason Bourne’s side.”

Visitors enter the attraction and are immediately surrounded by props, images and clips from the films, including Jason Bourne’s motorcycle from ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’. Guests will then enter mission headquarters, where they will be briefed by Nicky Parsons, played by Julia Stiles in the films.
In the show, guests will watch Jason Bourne travel across three continents, uncovering classified information while escaping danger.
Universal Orlando Resort has recently reduced its workforce due to the coronavirus pandemic.
