Lionsgate Movie World will be the first international theme park to set up in South Korea, and it will also centre on other Lionsgate movies, such as Twilight, Now You See Me and next year’s Robin Hood.
Construction is scheduled to begin next year, and the theme park will span 122,000 sq m. Lionsgate will partner Landing Jeju Development, a subsidiary of Landing International Development and the operator-developer of Jeju Shinhwa World.
The theme park will be the centrepiece of Jeju Shinhwa World, which integrates various vacation resorts around Jeju Island. It will boast different zones where streets and towns from the movies will be recreated. There will also be themed cafes, restaurants, souvenir shops and performances.
