Lionsgate Movie World is set to be built at Jeju Shinhwa World, a new resort destination on Jeju Island, South Korea and will be the country’s first international theme park. The theme park will be developed into seven movie zones — each themed around a blockbuster Lionsgate-produced movie like The Hunger Games, The Twilight Saga, Now You See Me, including the upcoming Robin Hood film set for a March 2018 release.

From the thrilling chase in The Hunger Games to the magic and mystery in Now You See Me, visitors will be able to “…experience actual movie scenes through state-of-the-art rides, attractions and 4D Intellectual Property (IP) reproduced streets and towns,” according to a press release.

Each movie zone will also feature themed restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops, and entertainment performances.

Lionsgate Movie World is set to start construction next year and is scheduled to open its doors in 2019.
