Today we got some NEW details about what is in store for the upcoming park!
One thing we do know about Epic Universe: it’s going to be BIG. In fact, according to the Orlando Sentinel, NBCUniversal’s CEO Jeff Shell, has said that it’ll be “just a little bit smaller than [Universal] Beijing.”
Shell said the attractions in this massive park will be based on “some of the Illumination and DreamWorks content but especially Nintendo.” From Illumination, we might see rides from Despicable Me or from movies based on Dr. Seuss’s books. DreamWorks created Shrek and How to Train Your Dragon, so rides based on these are also possible!
One movie franchise that Shell didn’t mention was the Harry Potter movies, which of course already have attractions in two of Universal’s other parks.
Universal hasn’t yet confirmed if Harry Potter will be absent in the newest park, so Potterheads should keep their fingers crossed!
There isn’t an official opening date yet, but the park is scheduled to open in early 2025. Keep following AllEars for more upcoming information about Universal’s Epic Universe!
