What to expect:

Wētā Workshop Unleashed Experience - 90 mins

An entirely make-believe tour based in reality!

Step into our captivating world, where a host guides you through the mesmerizing art of crafting movie magic.

From crafting props and animatronics to building fantasy worlds and beyond, the possibilities are boundless. Join us and explore the secrets behind the scenes as we unveil the remarkable process that brings movie dreams to life! Your host will tell you about three completely original film concepts, based in the worlds of horror, fantasy and sci-fi.

Part one: Horror

The Animatronics and Prosthetics department is working on the horror film Fauna. Walk through the workshop and see this 1980’s style horror movie in the making, filled with details on how our ideas are being developed for the film.

Part two: Fantasy

Enter our very own Artists’ Shed, a peaceful haven that shows the process of fantasy world-building through the imaginations of concept artists, who dream up a world designed for the epic movie Age of the Ever-Clan.

Part three: Sci-fi

It’s time to walk onto a film set of the science fiction adventure movie Origins. Projected light plays across the stage in a stunning display with an epic sci-fi soundtrack begins. A gigantic robot and epic spaceship immerse you in an atmospheric sci-fi wonder…
