Have you ever wanted to live in a Jordan Peele movie? Nope? Good answer.
Luckily, fans of Peele’s work will soon have a lower-stakes way to explore his latest creation. One of the key sets from his upcoming feature Nope is joining the Universal Studios Hollywood Studio Tour.
The set in question is known as Jupiter’s Claim. It’s a “family fun theme park” with California Gold Rush aesthetics. We won’t know its full significance until Nope officially premieres. However, Jupiter’s Claim is said to be a pivotal location for the events of the film.
Production designer Ruth DeJong created the elaborate set, which was carefully disassembled post-production and re-assembled on the Universal Studios lot to become a part of the Studio Tour.
The Universal Studio Tour, which is one one of the attractions available to theme park guests, features sets from a number of iconic films, from Steven Spielberg’s War of the Worlds to Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. And with Halloween Horror Nights coming up, it seems like the perfect time to add Nope to the backlot.
“I remember visiting Universal Studios when I was 12 years old and being mesmerized,” said Peele. “That experience reinforced my passion and drive to someday join in on the meta-magic of ‘backlot life.’ Since then, I’ve been fortunate enough to direct three movies for Universal. It is a privilege to honor these collaborations with my studio partners, crew members and cast, and to be able to share Jupiter’s Claim with fans.”
Jupiter’s Claim will officially become a stop on the Studio Tour starting July 22 – the same day the movie releases in theaters. (This marks the first time a Studio Tour attraction has debuted at the same time as a film’s premiere.)
Until then, you can sneak a peek at Jupiter’s Claim on this ominous website set up by the Nope team.
