Hasbro is actively in development of a fully fledged theatrical production studio for animation. The studio is set out to develop multiple movies in the foreseeable future.
Together with Boulder Media Limited, this independent production studio is described as “a truly unique studio and academic facility with stand-out identity and world-wide appeal. Hollywood production would truly be happening in the centre of Dún Laoghaire – with regularity”.
The studio will house up to 650 staff members, which is roughly half the size of Pixar Animation Studio.
Hasbro is planning to use the studio for a number of theatrical movies on a long-term repeating cycle. We believe that movies such as Transformers, My Little Pony, G.I. Joe and Power Rangers will receive forefront attention.
Though planned to locate in Ireland; the home of Boulder Media, the plan has already hit a snag with Dún Laoghaire Council declining the use of old Stena Line terminal which is unused since 2015. You can read more about it via Irish Times.
