Universal Studios Hollywood Debuts the All-New DreamWorks Theatre

 

All-New DreamWorks Theatre With the Technologically-Advanced, Immersive Attraction “Kung Fu Panda: The Emperor’s Quest” in Summer 2018


On the heels of the recent acquisition of DreamWorks Animation, Universal Studios Hollywood is setting the stage for the Summer 2018 debut of the all-new DreamWorks Theatre presenting the premier attraction, “Kung Fu Panda: The Emperor’s Quest.”

​Inspired by the global blockbuster franchise, the attraction will take guests on a thrilling journey that fuses captivating storytelling with state-of-the art visual effects for a highly engaging experience.

​Created and produced by DreamWorks Animation and Universal Creative, “Kung Fu Panda: The Emperor’s Quest” recounts a plot-filled story whereby on the morning of The Emperor’s Great Feast of Heroes, dragon warrior Po embarks on a wild and perilous mission to deliver the rare and precious Liquid of Limitless Power to the Palace, while enlisting guests to join him on the exciting adventure filled with raging rapids, river pirates, awesome magic and Kung Fu.

​With cutting-edge technology at the forefront of the multi-sensory attraction, “Kung Fu Panda: The Emperor’s Quest” will introduce the first-ever integration of interior projection mapping designed toengulf guests in 180 degrees of immersive adventure.

Developed by the innovative team at Universal Creative, this never-before-adapted technique will depict a series of immersive and visually dynamic scenic designs that will transform within the interior space and enhance the story.

With detailing that is so precise, it will be near impossible to realize the projected imagery is a mere illusion.

Coupled with seven Christie 4K Boxer Cinema Projectors and 360 degree surround sound audio, sweeping physical effects from water to wind will empower guests to feel more like participants than spectators in the adrenaline-spiked adventure.

Featuring an original score by composer Germaine Franco, the storyline begins as guests enter the pre-show area of the theatre where they meet an array of DreamWorks characters who kick-off the attraction’s narrative.

From there, guests will enter the main theatre, complete with new ultra-plush, fully articulated seats that pivot and swivel in tandem with the 180-degree action.

The newly constructed building that houses the DreamWorks Theatre is inspired by Mission revival architecture and harkens back to the Golden Age of Hollywood’s Art Deco period of the 1920s, including a box office ticket seller booth, reminiscent of the time period and staffed by a three-dimensional Pinocchio character asleep on the job.

​As guests navigate past the ticket booth, through the flourishing outdoor garden and into the theatre queue, they will encounter a series of 36 movie posters that pay homage to DreamWorks Animation films.

Within the lobby, a selection of over 20 award statuettes will be on display, representing a sampling of the Golden Globe, Emmy, People’s Choice, Critic’s Choice, National Board of Review and Annie awards DreamWorks Animation has amassed from 2008 to 2015.

A collection of original sculpted maquettes of the “Kung Fu Panda: The Emperor’s Quest” characters will also be on display along with artifacts embodying magical powers that Po brought back from the Spirit Realm.

#TVTuesday: Week 1 | This Is Us, Shadowhunters, Fear the Walking Dead/The Walking Dead & DWTS

IMG_0538

Hey, everyone! Happy Tuesday!

Today is all about TV here on According to Kristin. What I’m watching, what I’ve been wanting to watch, what others are watching that I haven’t gotten into, etc.  As always, I’m open to any suggestions for shows you want me to check out. Even if you just want to rant or rave about a recent episode of a show…tweet me all about it @thisiskristin_!

I admit…I watch a lot of TV. I started doing podcast reviews with some of my friends, which has kept me in front of the TV instead of in the gym lol. BUT, I plan on watching the shows while I’m at least running on the treadmill every night. 😜

IMG_0606

One of my absolute favorites at the moment is This Is Us. Even just the trailer for the NBC show had me hooked! This is the first time in my life that I’ve witnessed a show that touches on every possible situation and curve ball that life can throw your way. And to do it with such an incredible cast is the icing on the cake. Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Justin Hartley, Chrissy Metz, Susan Kelechi Watson and everyone else involved with this show deserve all the praise in the world. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but if you haven’t seen an episode of this show, you should definitely change that asap.

 


 

IMG_0608 IMG_0607

A show I recently binge-watched was Shadowhunters, which can be found on Freeform (formerly ABC Family). A friend from work recommended it to me, so I binged it on Hulu and loved it. The acting is suspect at times, but the premise for the show is interesting. I saw the Mortal Instruments film a few years ago and this is based on the same concept and the same novel by Cassandra Clare. The show stars Katherine McNamara, Dominic Sherwood, Matthew Daddario, Emeraude Toubia, Harry Shum, Jr., Alberto Rosende and Isaiah Mustafa (the Old Spice guy!!). The special effects are pretty decent and the soundtrack is amazing. I’ll be talking about the artist, Ruelle (who sings the title track for the show and also has a few other songs that are featured), A LOT, so check her out wherever you download or stream music.

Last night Danay Garcia posted a photo on her Instagram that sent Fear the Walking Dead and The Walking Dead fans spiraling down the rabbit hole! We’ve been speculating whether or not they would merge the two shows at some point and we’ve been shot down at every conspiracy theory, BUT it is finally confirmed that this will happen!! Not sure when, why, or how, but it’s going to happen at some point and I’m excited for it!

Don’t forget to catch The Walking Dead is back on AMC October 22nd!


IMG_0609

One of my guilty pleasure shows is Dancing With the Stars. I know, I know…don’t judge me! I wasn’t really interested in this season except for seeing Jordan Fisher and Lindsey Stirling though. I spoke about Jordan Fisher yesterday for #MusicMonday, but watching him dance is a whole other ballgame. He performed a Contemporary dance last night with his partner Lindsay Arnold that was absolutely beautiful! He can literally do anything! You can watch their dance below:

Lindsey Stirling is an incredible violinist, but she’s also proving herself on the dance floor. She’s used to jumping around on stage when she’s playing the violin, but she’s a self-proclaimed clumso too. It doesn’t show though! I probably would’ve been tripping over my own two feet if I attempted even five seconds of this dance lol!

Check out her Jive with Mark Ballas from last week’s episode below:

 

Let me know what you’re watching! Tell me about a recent episode that made you cry and reevaluate life. There are so many shows out right now, it’s hard to keep up!

See you all next week for #TVTuesday!

THE WALKING DEAD Universal Studios Hollywood’s New Permanent Attraction

Universal Studios Hollywood Takes on the Zombie Apocalypse Announcing a Permanent Walk-Through Attraction Based on AMC’s Award-Winning Series, “The Walking Dead,” Opening Summer 2016

Intense, All-New State-of-the-Art Theme Park Addition Continues Destination’s Ongoing Revitalization

Universal Studios Hollywood brings the most popular show in cable television history to life in Summer 2016 when AMC’s Golden Globe award-nominated television series,   “The Walking Dead,”    sets up permanent residency at The Entertainment Capital of L.A. in an all-new immersive, cutting-edge attraction.

Universal Studios Hollywood has worked collaboratively with AMC’s “The Walking Dead” for years as a signature “Halloween Horror Nights” maze.

This newly enhanced venture will take the highly sought-after experience from a seasonal, limited time offering to an authentic 365 day opportunity, raising the bar for themed walk-through attractions.

For a look at what to expect when the attraction opens this summer, please click   here.

To further elevate the authenticity of this new attraction, Universal Studios Hollywood is partnering with “The Walking Dead’s” creative team, including visionary executive producer and director, Greg Nicotero and his special effects company, KNB Efx. Greg’s team, responsible for masterfully creating the show’s realistic decaying walkers, will construct prosthetics, utilize original molds and painstakingly apply paint and detailing to the attraction walkers.

The integral involvement of the creative team will not only inspire the emotional connection fans experience, it will be among the attraction’s key distinguishing characteristics that will define it as a living version of the show.

“The Walking Dead” attraction will create a no-holds-bar experience that significantly intensifies any other iteration previously developed within the theme park.

Coupled with authentic walker make-up effects, sophisticated animatronic walkers, substantially more detailed set design and costuming, and highly recognizable props replicated from the series, the attraction will deliver an uncompromised realistic environment that brings guests even further into the most watched show in cable television history.

“‘The Walking Dead’ is a phenomenon that has successfully and consistently affected the psyche of viewers on a global basis, since its debut,” Larry Kurzweil, President of Universal Studios Hollywood, said. “We’re taking its intensity to the next level by collaborating with the show’s award-winning production team to create an authentic living representation of the series that can only be experienced at Universal Studios Hollywood.”

“We’re so grateful for our longstanding partnership with the talented team at Universal Studios Hollywood. We’ve shared a successful three-year partnership at Halloween Horror Nights and now this permanent ‘The Walking Dead’ walk- through attraction takes the relationship and the fan experience to the next level,” Charlie Collier, President of AMC and SundanceTV, said. “Along with our great partners at Universal, it means a great deal to us to continue entertaining — and frightening — passionate, loyal fans of ‘The Walking Dead’ for years to come.”

The “The Walking Dead” attraction will be located within an entirely new, custom built structure, situated within an expansive building complex just inside the theme park’s main entry.

The past five years have been a remarkable time for Universal Studios Hollywood as the destination embarked on an unprecedented revitalization that has substantially altered over 75 percent of its familiar footprint to effectively characterize it as an entirely new theme park experience.

The introduction of the all-new “The Walking Dead” attraction continues the theme park’s unparalleled investment in an ambitious epic transformation.

AMC’s “The Walking Dead” depicts the story of survivors in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by hordes of terrifying flesh-eating walkers.

It is the #1 show on television among adults 18-49 for the last four years and in its sixth season, the most highly-rated show in cable television history.

More information is available at   www.UniversalStudiosHollywood.com. Like Universal Studios Hollywood on Facebook and follow @UniStudios on Instagram and Twitter.

Due to the intense nature of this experience, the attraction is not recommended for guests under the age of 13.

Universal Studios Hollywood, The Entertainment Capital of L.A.SM, includes a full-day, movie-based theme park and Studio Tour; the CityWalk entertainment, shopping and dining complex, the Universal CityWalk Cinemas and the “5 Towers” state-of-the-art outdoor concert venue. World-class rides and attractions include “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter,” opening April 7, the renowned, behind-the-scenes Studio Tour featuring the intense “King Kong 360 3-D” attraction and the all-new “Fast & Furious—Supercharged” thrill ride as the Studio Tour’s grand finale. Other popular rides include the 3D-HD adventure, “Despicable Me Minion Mayhem” and immersive “Super Silly Fun Land,” the critically-acclaimed mega-attraction, “Transformers™: The Ride-3D,” “Revenge of the MummySM—The Ride,” “Jurassic Park® —The Ride,” “Springfield,” hometown of America’s favorite TV family, adjacent to the award-winning “The Simpsons RideTM” and the “Nighttime Studio Tour.”
