RSG, co-owner and co-developer of Movie Animation Park Studios (MAPS) along with Perak Corporation Bhd, has announced that it has entered into a partnership with MONSTA, creator of three-in-one, animated superhero, BoBoiBoy.
This will be BoBoiBoy’s first theme park presence and the first Malaysian animated character to join the MAPS animation family which already features a host of DreamWorks characters including Mr. Peabody and Sherman, The Croods, Megamind and Casper the Friendly Ghost.
RSG founder and chairman, Ramelle Ramli, reports: “While RSG is committed to redefining family fun, MONSTA is redefining family entertainment through animation. Together we have a synergistic partnership that excites and meets Malaysian and Asian family values.”
MAPS, located in Perak, Malaysia, is RSG’s first foray into world class, themed, family entertainment.
Ramli explains: “From day one, RSG led the MAPS project. And, from the very beginning, we have had tremendous support from Perak Corporation; financial institutions who believed in us and the project, and the Sanderson Group, our turnkey contractor, who is fully mobilised on site and is currently at 40% completion. Together we are making MAPS a reality.”
Future plans include Phase Two of MAPS which will feature a hotel, serviced apartments, and “a unique lifestyle retail and dining concept.”
