Turn the lights down, put on your party hats and bring out the birthday cake because Warner Bros. just turned 100! The studio has been responsible for some of the most nostalgic and trailblazing films that have accompanied generations of people over its 100 years of existence. With titles like The Wizard of Oz, the Harry Potter franchise and Tom and Jerry under their belt, Warner Bros. has been spreading infectious laughs and joys to many of us for years.
The iconic studio is celebrating its centennial over the span of 13 days at Sentosa, and you’re all invited! Fans of all ages are welcome to join in the fun for free and delve headfirst into the world of Warner Bros. – with everything from interactive zones to movie screenings; everyone will be kept entertained!
So buckle up as I guide you through the itinerary for this party from this legendary powerhouse!
Our journey begins at Beach Station. Here, fans can learn more about the rich history of Warner Bros. and get an inside glimpse of their achievements and milestones over the century. Fans will also be able to snap some cute pictures with the stars of Looney Tunes: Bugs Bunny and Lola Bunny!
For Sentosa Islander Members, this is also where you can redeem your exclusive WB100 goody bag at the redemption booth conveniently located right here!
WB100 Interactive Zone
Our next stop is Emerald Pavilion. Starting with the interactive zone, fans will get a look at products from some exclusive collaborations between Warner Bros. and a plethora of brands.
One of which is the POP MART Molly x Warner Bros. 100th Anniversary Series! See her transform herself into some of the most beloved characters in TV history, including Emily from Corpse Bride and the DC Superhero Batman!
WB Animation Zone
Also in the same vicinity is the Animation Zone! This is where fans can get up close and personal with their favourite animated characters. You’ll be given the chance to peek into the brains of animators responsible for creating TV’s most iconic characters, thanks to the fun facts and storyboards scattered all over the zone!
Now, it isn’t a Warner Bros. celebration if it didn’t include one of their most famous creations: Tom and Jerry. This lovable pair has graced our screens for decades and has recently returned with more crazy antics but with a local twist.
The Tom and Jerry in Singapore series premiered on Cartoon Network and HBO GO in October, and Warner Bros. is giving fans the inside scoop with the behind-the-scenes of this special series! With intimate details of the series plastered all over the zone, fans will walk away having learnt more about this iconic duo’s newest adventures.
In addition to that, the Animation Zone also boasts the Hawker Havoc game, where you can play as either Tom or Jerry and try to collect as many local delights as you can while avoiding all other items that come your way! You can’t walk away from this zone before snapping a picture with Tom and Jerry as they indulge in an icy bowl of Ice Kachang. It’s in this zone that StarHub HBO Pak subscribers will be able to redeem a free ice cream sandwich by flashing the unique code sent to them via SMS or in-app!
The entire event is crawling with photo opportunities, including the larger-than-life inflatable of Tom and Jerry chowing on the king of fruits at the end of this zone. So make sure you don’t miss the chance to immortalise your experience at this fun-filled event. Jerry is currently on his latest adventure and has recently been mouse-napped! His return has not yet been confirmed, but let’s all cross our fingers and hope for his safe return.
World of DC
Located in the same area is the World of DC, a haven for enthusiasts of DC superheroes looking to immerse themselves in this legendary universe.
The zone proudly showcases timeless comic book covers featuring iconic characters like Wonder Woman and Green Lantern, offering a treat for every comic book fanatic. As you explore, the interactive projection wall guides you through an extensive history of your favourite heroes, making it a nostalgic journey down memory lane.
Get ready to strike your best superhero pose alongside Earth’s most revered team: The Justice League! In anticipation of the upcoming movie Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, fans can seize the opportunity to pose alongside the ruler of Atlantis.
