The impressive and elaborate Jupiter’s Claim set was created by Production Designer Ruth DeJong, then carefully disassembled post-production and transported to Universal Studios Hollywood, where it was meticulously reconstructed on site, complete with original props and details from the film.

Jordan Peele, alongside producing partner Ian Cooper and Monkeypaw Productions, is thrilled to bring the film’s fictional theme park to Universal Studios Hollywood as a permanent Studio Tour attraction.  Concepting the integration of the set to the Studio Tour began early in the production in partnership with the filmmakers, working collaboratively with Universal Creative at Universal Studios Hollywood to ensure authenticity and accuracy.

“I remember visiting Universal Studios when I was 12 years old and being mesmerized. That experience reinforced my passion and drive to someday join in on the meta-magic of ‘backlot life.’ Since then, I’ve been fortunate enough to direct three movies for Universal,” said Jordan Peele in a Universal Studios Hollywood press release. “It is a privilege to honor these collaborations with my studio partners, crew members and cast, and to be able to share Jupiter’s Claim with fans.”

This new film stars Oscar winner Daniel Kaluuya (Get OutJudas and the Black Messiah) as OJ Haywood and Keke Palmer (HustlersAlice) as Emerald Haywood, joined by Brandon Perea, who plays Angel Torres, Michael Wincott playing Antlers Holst, and Oscar nominee Steven Yeun (MinariOkja) as Ricky ‘Jupe’ Park.

After random objects falling from the sky result in the death of their father, ranch-owning siblings OJ and Emerald Haywood attempt to capture video evidence of an unidentified flying object with the help of tech salesman Angel Torres and documentarian Antlers Holst.

The Studio Tour is renowned for taking Guests behind the scenes of an authentic movie and television production studio.
