A live touring show inspired by the “Jurassic World” film franchise is in the works.

Feld Entertainment — its production credits include “Disney On Ice,” “Disney Live!,” “Sesame Street Live!” and “Marvel Universe LIVE!” – – will come up with the concept, produce and manage the multi-year arena show tour featuring a “herd” of life-size dinosaurs.

“Using state-of-the-art projection mapping, fans will be transported right onto Isla Nublar, and with the addition of sophisticated animatronics and performer-operated characters, the dinosaurs will literally be the biggest stars of the show as the story is told through human and dinosaur interaction,” according to a statement jointly released by Feld Entertainment and Universal Brand Development, which are collaborating on the project.

“Jurassic World” took in more than $1.67 billion worldwide. The second installment in the franchise, “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” arrives in theaters on June 22, and the arena show is scheduled to launch the following year.

“Fans around the world continue to tell us they want more ways to experience `Jurassic World,’ and the thrilling action and larger-than-life experience of this live arena tour gives them the opportunity to engage in an all new and exciting way,” said Vince Klaseus, president of Universal Brand Development. “Feld Entertainment is best-in-class at creating spectacular live experiences, and this show is able to meet the high expectations of fans worldwide who are craving more interaction with Jurassic World dinosaurs.”

Kenneth Feld, chairman and CEO of Feld Entertainment, pledged to “bring this iconic franchise to life” with “edge-of-your-seat, live entertainment that is a mix between a stunt show and a 3-D thrill attraction.”

Feld Entertainment will build and rehearse the production at it nearly 600,000-square-foot studio in Florida.
