DreamWorks Animation, in partnership with the company behind the London Eye Ferris Wheel, are planning a Shrek theme park to be built on London’s South Bank, the company has announced recently. According to The Guardian, Shrek’s Far Far Away Land will be one of six similar sites across the world. The Far Far Away Land will be the first to open, with five further attractions due to open between now and 2023. The attraction is set to open in summer 2015 and will celebrate the four-film story of the grumpy, but lovable green ogre, which has so far made more than $3.5bn (£2.09bn) at the worldwide box office, as well as other films from DreamWorks Animation.
