    Looks like the IP might still be involved. It seems that the Dreamworks project was never in doubt but the fact that Universal and Dreamworks will have competing parks may have put the Moscow park at risk. But now it looks like both are still ongoing.

    NBC Universal and DreamWorks Animation are going ahead with their separate theme park projects in Russia.

    Following the announcement last month that NBCU will take over DreamWorks Animation, there was an expectation that the two companies' Russian theme park projects could be combined.

    However, NBCU has confirmed that it is going ahead with its Moscow project. "The project is still on, but we do not have an update," NBCU's spokesman told The Hollywood Reporter, adding that it "is not connected with any other project."

    Google Earth was last updated in May and there was construction work underway then too. It looks like a lot of progress has been made since then according to those photos.

    @Gutterflower, this is very strange. A theme park visibly under construction which has supposedly been cancelled? Maybe the DreamWorks IP has left the project and the castle-themed indoor park is rising without its intellectual property?

    Oops, it seems there is no more DreamWorks Russia according to this article:

    From the beginning project ran into headwinds as many insiders in the movie colony in Los Angeles questioned the viability of such an undertaking. The parks would have been surrounded by hotels, high-end shopping complexes and restaurants.

    But Katzenberg couldn't have been more enthusiastic about the prospects as he journeyed back and forth to Russia. The trio of venues was expected to cost in excess of $1 billion.

    Finally, uncertainties caused by the economic and political climates killed the project.

    And Katzenberg quickly changed course, with China becoming the next port of call.

    The movie executive told The Moscow Times he has been visiting China monthly in search of new partners and deals. There he has been more successful than he was in Russia.

    News on the construction date:

    According to earlier reports, construction was to begin in early 2017, with BIN Group as the developer.

    DreamWorks' theme park, Dream Island, is scheduled to enter the construction stage later this year to be inaugurated in 2018.

    Developed by the group Regiony, it is part of a larger project that also includes similar theme parks in Russia's other major cities St. Petersburg and Yekaterinburg.

    In the area of ​​building large enough to support more than 25 football fields. The center of gravity - an amusement park. "It will cost 1300-1400 rubles, and there will be composed of all 40 rides for free. A person can be there for 10 hours without a time limit," - said the project investor Amiran Mutsoev.
    I am not sure that putting a price on your entrance before you have even built it is a good idea!

    On the territory of almost 300 thousand square meters will house more than 40 attractions. Entertaining and playgrounds will be dedicated to the heroes of famous domestic and foreign cartoons. One of the main attractions will be the ferris wheel height 138 meters
    There have been mixed messages about this "Ferris Wheel" as many of the early drawings showed a large wheel external to the building (or in some cases an observation tower) but the latest models shown have only showed the enclosed park with no external park buildings/constructions. Considering they have mentioned it in most communications it seems odd to me that it is missing from the model they are now promoting.

    I found these photos from an article dated November 30. The theme park will be called "Island of Dreams", as translated I presume?

    I am surprised it's going ahead. But why not, by the time it opens Russia's economic troubles will be a matter of the past.
