DreamWorks’ plans follow the news of an all-new Minion Land at Universal Orlando Resort, featuring an interactive and immersive game experience, for Villain Con Minion Blast.
Earlier this year, the company announced a new and original theme park concept designed specifically for families with young children in Frisco, Texas. The proposed park is designed to be more intimate and interactive with family-friendly attractions, interactive displays, and personal meet-and-greets.
The parks fall under Universal Destinations & Experiences (rebranded in March from Universal Parks & Resorts). It is headed by Mark Woodberry, who quickly begins to attract new innovations. The division became one of four divisions in a new structure announced earlier this month that laid out a new structure for NBCU with four divisions: NBCUniversal Studio Group led by Donna Langley, NBCUniversal Media Group led by Mark Lazarus, expanded NBCU News Group led by Cesar Conde, Comcast President Mike Cavanagh said in his email to staff, led by the Woodbury Group and “rapidly growing.”
