The jury’s still out on whether Judge Dredd will ever hit the big or small screens ever again. However, London is planning to open up a new immersive installation based around the 2000 A.D. mythos that should be enough to satisfy the character’s fans across the pond. Via Entertainment Weekly, the city will host Judge Dredd Uprising: The LIVE Experience beginning in spring 2021.
For 150 minutes, guests will explore the dystopian British isle known as Brit-Cit. There, they’ll encounter a mix of live entertainment and interactive challenges. Visitors can test their knowledge of all things Dredd as they traverse five unique “zones” and participate in different narratives. The installation features everything from an “immersive live theatre” to a laser tag arena. It also looks like there will be recreations of other environments that fans might recognize from Dredd’s comic adventures.

Uprising comes from Little Lion Entertainment, who previously created The Crystal Maze Live Experience (based on the British game show of the same name). Little Lion’s founder and CEO, Tom Lionetti-Maguire, also issued a statement about Dredd’s upcoming arrival in London.
“This show is insanely exciting!” said Lionetti-Maguire. “The experience is part comic book, part sci-fi film, part immersive theatre, part escape room, part action adventure, and part indoor theme park.”
“The world of Judge Dredd is the greatest imaginative universe to come out of British comics and we’re proud to bring it to ever wider audiences,” added Jason Kingsley, CEO of Judge Dredd I.P. owner Rebellion Entertainment.
