“This new show is insanely exciting!” says Tom Lionetti-Maguire, Founder and CEO of Little Lion. “The experience is part comic book, part sci-fi film, part immersive theatre, part escape room, part action adventure and part indoor theme park… all wrapped into one.
“This is our second show and I really wanted us to push the boundaries of what audiences can expect, to explore the space between theatre, film and reality. With Uprising we have really achieved that.
“Judge Dredd’s mega-cities are a wild, prophetic and very funny world of future crime, surreal action and crazed citizens… and now you can experience that world for yourself. It’s time to choose your side.”
CEO of Rebellion, Jason Kingsley OBE, owners and publishers of Judge Dredd says “The world of Judge Dredd is the greatest imaginative universe to come out of British comics and we’re proud to bring it to ever wider audiences. Every reader has dreamed of setting foot in a Mega-City, and with Judge Dredd Uprising: The LIVE Experience they can do just that…”
An epic new concept in competitive entertainment, Judge Dredd Uprising: The LIVE Experience is set to be the Capital’s ultimate attraction for fun, parties, get-togethers, corporate team-building, big nights out and even dating (what’s a better way to get to know your latest Swipe Right than breaking out of jail with them?).
A new adventure is coming in 2021. Be ready, Citizen.
NOTES TO EDITORS:
JUDGE DREDD: A BRITISH COMIC ICON
Launched in the anarchic pages of 2000 AD in 1977 and created by writer John Wagner and artist Carlos Ezquerra, uncompromising lawman Judge Dredd is one of the best-known British comics characters of all time.
Catching the mood of the times from Thatcherism to Blairism and beyond, the heavily satirical Dredd comics became essential reading for punks, ravers and pop culture addicts as well as hardcore comics fans. The strip showed an uncanny ability to predict real-world phenomena like sob story reality TV shows, the obesity crisis and out-of-control street art many decades before they happened in the real world.
And classic storylines such as Democracy and America examined the morality of hardline policing. With the world heading in a more authoritarian direction, Dredd and his police state have never been more relevant – or more of a warning.
Dredd has been the subject of two movies, played by Sylvester Stallone in 1996’s Judge Dredd and Karl Urban of Star Trek and The Boys fame in the critically acclaimed Dredd 3D from 2012 – written and creatively controlled by visionary writer and Dredd superfan Alex Garland, creator of the BBC2 hit Devs andhit artificial intelligence movie Ex Machina. Judge Dredd is one of only a handful of UK comics characters to appear on a Royal Mail stamp.
Founded in 1992, Rebellion is one of Europe’s biggest independent cross media studios and the owner and publisher of 2000 AD and Judge Dredd.
Famed for the global bestselling Sniper Elite and Zombie Army games series, Rebellion operates across books, comics, games, TV and film. Since 2000, founders Jason Kingsley OBE and Chris Kingsley OBE have become the custodians of the largest archive of English-language comic books in the world and have overseen the development of classic characters into games, films and more. Rebellion recently opened a $100m, twelve acre film studio in Oxfordshire, which will be home to forthcoming productions including Moon director Duncan Jones’s feature film based on the 2000 AD character Rogue Trooper, and the Mega-City One TV series based on the world of Judge Dredd.
