Steven Speilberg and Universal have a long history together, not only in movies but in theme parks! You may have ridden the defunct Jaws attraction at a Universal park or hopped on a bicycle in the E.T. attraction at Universal Orlando. While Universal’s Beijing is not getting either of these attractions, it is getting its very own attraction in collaboration with Steven Speilberg.
Steven Speilberg and Zhang Yimou are creating a new attraction with Universal called, “‘Lights, Camera, Action!”. This exciting new attraction is in development for Universal Studios Beijing, which is set to open in Spring of 2021. Universal recently gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at what they can expect when the resort first opens.
Recently, we reported on the brand new flying Toothless puppet/animatronic that was unveiled for Universal Studios Beijing. While we do not know if that is for an attraction or a live show, it was exciting to see what new exciting offerings will be coming to Universal Beijing.
Now, we want to talk about the new attraction that is in development with Steven Speilberg and Zhang Yimou for the brand new theme park resort. Universal describes this attraction as:
Universal Studios Beijing will also bring Hollywood Boulevard to China. Visitors will feel as if they are living in the Hollywood itself and could encounter celebrities at any moment. Hollywood will feature the “Lights, Camera, Action!” attraction, featuring world-renowned directors, Zhang Yimou and Steven Spielberg. The experience will merge both Western and Eastern popular culture, and will lead visitors into the behind-the-scenes glitz and glamour of Hollywood special effects.
We cannot wait to enjoy Lights, Camera, Action! When it opens with Universal Beijing in March. While we know little about the attraction right now, we do expect more information to come out soon now that this first look has been released.
