Universal Studios Hollywood's famous tour just got a whole bigger with the inclusion of a new set.
Jordan Peele's latest horror film "Nope" is now a permanent fixture of the Studio Tour. From 22nd July guests taking the tour can now see the "impressive and elaborate" 'Jupiter's Claim' set. Designed by Ruth DeJong, the set piece was carefully dismantled and rebuilt piece by piece at Universal Studios Hollywood.
Director and creator Jordan Peele said of the set joining the tour; "I remember visiting Universal Studios when I was 12 years old and being mesmerized... 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."
Universal's Studio Tours in its Hollywood park is arguably one the park's best attractions. Giving fans a chance to see behind the scenes of a real working movie studio, you never know who you are going to see or what will happen when taking a tour on the famous trams.
This will be the first time that a new set has become a part of the Studio Tour at the same time as a film release. Nope's Jupiter's Claim will join other amazing sets including; the incredible crash set from Steven Spielberg's 'War of The Worlds' and Hitchcock's infamous 'Psycho' House & Motel.
Nope is written, produced and directed by Peele with the sci-f/horror about "residents in a lonely gulch of inland California who bear witness to an uncanny and chilling discovery". Jupiter’s Claim is "a family-fun theme park and predicated on the white-washed history and aesthetics of the California Gold Rush". A place where Peele's characters "investigate mysterious, unexplained phenomena, leading them toward increasing danger and terrifying consequences".
Both 'Nope' and the Jupiter's Claim set will be making their debuts on 22nd July and we can't wait to see what happens.
