nWave to Showcase Red Star 3D's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea at EAS

Brussels, Belgium (September 14, 2012) -- 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, the new 4D film experience from UK animation studio Red Star, will be launched at the upcoming Euro Attractions Show (EAS) in Berlin by market--leading distributor nWave Pictures.

Re-imagining the classic tale for 21st Century audiences in 4D movie theatres and attractions, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea takes viewers on the journey of teenager Ned as he plunges into a world of adventure aboard the submarine Nautilus commanded by the mysterious Captain Nemo.

The 3D adventure ride features cues for popular 4D effects such as water splashes, wind blasts and bubbles. 3D fish swim out of the screen, bubbles fill the auditorium and viewers will feel the deck of the Nautilus jolt and shake when it is attacked by a giant squid.

“Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea has amazed and entertained readers for over 140 years,” notes Red Star director Ben Smith. “We’re delighted to bring the story up to date and into the 4th dimension with this exciting and truly immersive attraction experience.”

nWave chairman Eric Dillens adds: “This fantastic new film will provide an amazing adventure ride for theme parks in 2013 and, thanks to the undersea subject matter and environmental issues highlighted, it’s a great fit for aquariums and waterparks too.”

Now available for distribution worldwide, parks and attractions operators will be among the first to view 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea on nWave’s booth (number 224) at EAS in Berlin from 9th to 11th October.
