New Sing On Tour Theater Attraction Opening at Universal Studios Japan

A brand new theater style attraction, named Sing On Tour, will open in 2019 at Universal Studios Japan, the theme park has announced.

Universal will once again work with Illumination, the studio behind the popular Sing film, to create the original attraction.  The experience will be located within the Minion Park themed section of Universal Studios Japan, based off the Despicable Me franchise - also from Illumination.

As for exactly what the attraction will be like, well that remains a little vague.  We know it will be inside a new performance area, named the Illumination Theater, and obviously feature the characters from Sing as they perform.  The press release literally says it will be an "all new super real musical show attraction," pretty hysterical.  The only other description of the show reads that "the stars of the film break through the two dimensional world to sing the hit songs from the movie in a dramatic live show sure to make musical history, promising to become one of the most entertaining shows in Japan."

The new Illumination Theater will feature leading edge production quality, and to me this sounds a lot like the DreamWorks Theater at Universal Studios Hollywood, which is currently showing a Kung Fu Panda themed attraction.  But hey, maybe we'll all be surprised and it'll be a show like at Check E. Cheese's, ha!

Sing On Tour at Universal Studios Japan is scheduled to open in the spring of 2019.
