5 Dec – Six years after it was first announced, Les' Copaque Production now brings an update on its upcoming "Upin & Ipin" theme park.
The park, based on the popular animated franchise, is now set to open in Nusajaya, Johor Bahru in 2022.
Tn Hj Burhanuddin Md Radzi, owner and Managing Director of Les' Copaque Production said that the theme park's opening is to help boost the tourism sector in Malaysia.
In related news, the "Barang Baik, Barang Kita" episode in the 14th season of "Upin&Ipin", which aired last Tuesday, received a great reception as it has been viewed almost three million times on YouTube.
Aside from promoting local products, another factor that contributed to the high view count is the introduction of a new character, Izham, who is Mail's brother as previously shown in the episode's teaser video.
Apart from that, "Upin & Ipin: Keris Siamang Tunggal" is now also available on Astro First. It was released on the on-demand channel on 3 December, in conjunction with the 15th anniversary of Les' Copaque.
