  1. Disney and Fox rejected Genting's claims in lawsuit over 20th Century Fox World theme park.

    Walt Disney Co (DIS.N) and Twenty-First Century Fox Inc (FOXA.O) on Tuesday rejected claims in a Malaysia casino operator’s lawsuit accusing them of abandoning a licensing contract tied to the planned construction of a Fox-branded theme park.

    Disney and Fox said Genting Malaysia Bhd’s (GENM.KL) respective claims against them were “without merit.”

    Genting shares fell 16.7 percent on Tuesday, a day after the Kuala Lumpur-based company sued the American media and entertainment companies in Los Angeles for more than $1 billion. The decline came before Disney and Fox issued their statements.

    According to the complaint, Fox Entertainment Group, under pressure from Disney, breached a 2013 contract to license its intellectual property for a planned theme park at the Resorts World Genting complex, an hour’s drive from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s capital.

    Genting blamed Fox for years of delays, and said Disney, which is buying many Fox assets for $71.3 billion, wanted to back out altogether because partnering with a gaming company did not fit its “family-friendly” brand strategy.

    The complaint also said Fox issued a default notice in a manner consistent with Disney wanting to “kill the deal.”

    Twentieth Century Fox Film, one of the defendants, rejected that allegation. “The allegation that Disney, rather than Fox, finally decided to declare a default is simply made up,” a spokesman said.

  2. This is ridiculous, shameful unprofessionalism from Fox (and Disney, by extension).

    Knowing some people who have been working on the project inside Genting Malaysia, it's apparently been non-stop obstruction and foot-dragging by Fox for almost 5 years.

    Bear in mind that Genting actually demolished their existing leisure park to make way for Fox World. Massive loss of current and future revenue.

    The litigation and appeals will take years, and in the meantime Genting is left in limbo with a 70% complete theme park that surely can't be retrofitted to eliminate Fox IPs (you can't change a Planet of the Apes ride to Planet of the Giant Bunny Rabbits very easily!)

  3. I'm afraid this might affect The VOID as well... Star Wars themed

  4. Genting Malaysia has now officially sued The Walt DIsney Company & Fox, as Disney was trying to back away from the theme park being developed.

    Yesterday at the 2018 IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando Dynamic Attractions announced new details about the Sons of Anarchy ride coming to the theme park, which according to the ride manufacturer will be opening in "spring 2019"

    “The Duel Power Coaster the world’s most advanced roller coaster vehicle,” states Hao Wang, President, Dynamic Attractions. “Most coasters are all about the track. That is only half of the excitement in this ride, where the cart itself is powered and moves, creating racing sensations never possible before on a roller coaster.”

    In addition to the 4-DOF motion platform, it has dual propulsion. The combination of On-Board drive and an Off-Board Linear Synchronous Motor drive heightens the experience for guests. “Imagine racing on a track and then suddenly ‘powering-up’ to boost your speed,” adds Wang.
