Guests will include producer and director Frank Marshall as well as Bourne film star Julia Stiles. Universal is promising behind the scenes looks as well as action from the show itself. We've got the preview here:
The Bourne Stuntacular has been in "technical rehearsals" for the past couple weeks and opens officially at Universal Studios Florida tomorrow, June 30.
Update: As much as I miss being at the park for an official media event, I gotta say that I would love to see more "insider" views like this one when attractions debut. You get some great looks at what Universal and its partners are doing with this show. And kudos to Universal for actually mentioning Action Horizons and some of the other organizations that it worked with to bring the show to life.
Too often, parks pretend that new attractions either just conjure up as magic, or that all the work is done in-house. But most major attractions require a team of businesses to develop, so it's refreshing to see Universal acknowledge that publicly.
Since I'm in Southern California for the lockdown, I haven't see the show in person yet. So I was a bit taken aback by one fight scene in the preview that included a crowd of non-socially-distant, non-mask-wearing observers. How could Universal put all those people on stage responsibly? Then I realized (again) that I am an idiot, and that the "crowd" was recorded on the high-definition LED screen behind the two stunt actors. Point to Universal for sucking me into the illusion there.
Anyway, I can't wait to see this show on my next trip to Orlando - whenever that might be. Early reader ratings on our The Bourne Stuntacular page have been positive. If you've seen the show, what did you think?
