New Behind-the-scenes Video for Universal's Studio Tour
There's a new movie "remake" that's being showcased by Universal Studios. To be honest, it's not really a feature film, it's actually a video. And it's not being released in the theaters, it's being shown on the Studio Tour at Universal Studios Hollywood-- one of my favorite places in the world.
Jimmy Fallon is the "star" of the new video, which will take visitors behind the scenes of the movie and television industry's biggest hits. Fallon, the host of NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon becomes the ride's "virtual Studio Tour Guide." Jimmy will be seen introducing a series of videos that will be seen on the High Definition monitors on each studio tram. As always, there will also be "live" narration from the professional Universal tour guides.
Fallon says, "We really had fun with filming my role. We brought some writers out from our show and added some jokes, more play with the Studio Tour guides, the tram drivers, and we added a song or two."
Fallon adds, "The tour itself is a classic, a really great experience. For anyone with any interest in show business, it's all there-- the glamour, the glitz, all the hard work that goes into making a movie or a TV show can be experienced on the Universal Studios Hollywood Studio Tour. I'm very happy to be part of it."
The new remake of the Studio Tour video with Fallon is just the latest in the enhancements to Universal Studios Hollywood. Last year the "King Kong 360 3-D" experience created by producer-director Peter Jackson was unveiled. Plus, last year Steven Speilberg was on hand for the re-opening of the newly rebuilt New York Street backlot, which gives guests on the studio tour a front row look at moviemaking.
It's all part of the Hollywood magic I continue to enjoy everytime I visit the studio. For me, this stuff never gets old.
