DreamWorks fans rejoice!
Singapore is the first country to host the global launch of DreamWorks Koukou; DreamWorks’ most iconic 3D animated characters coming together in a dumpling form known as KouKou (pronounced “KoKo”, derived from the Chinese word for mouth or bite “KOU”, written as ”口”).
There is no other city in the world that has held an interactive DreamWorks experience of such scale. Fans can look forward to the world’s first DreamWorks KouKou festival taking place from 1 March – 1 April 2018 through CapitaLand Malls.
During the media preview held today, we started off with an adventure and join Shrek and Puss in Boots to set a new record in the Singapore Book of Records for the largest tea mosaic of Shrek at Raffles City. Tea mosaic of Shrek is created with 3,640 cups of matcha which is a new record for the largest tea mosaic in Singapore.
The DreamWorks KouKou festival, titled ‘Savour Koulicious delights at CapitaLand malls’, kicked off today at Raffles City Singapore and Plaza Singapura. Six DreamWorks mascots Shrek, Alex, Po, Mei Mei, Skipper and Puss in Boots made a rare appearance during the launch event this is their first time in Singapore malls.
Next we hopped on an open-top bus tour to join the parade of the DreamWorks characters from Raffles City to Plaza Singapura through the heart of Orchard Road. Skipper was onboard the bus headed for Plaza Singapura to join excited fans in the unveiling of one-metretall DreamWorks KouKou inflatables featuring Po, Mei Mei, Alex and Shrek.
More than 250 people took part in the global launch on 1 March. The six characters hosted include Po and Mei Mei from Kung Fu Panda, Shrek and Puss in Boots from Shrek, and Alex and Skipper from Madagascar.
Ms Teresa Teow, Head of Retail Management, Singapore, CapitaLand Retail, shared that “At CapitaLand, we aim to provide quality and unique experiences in our malls that create special and unforgettable moments for our shoppers. Universal Pictures is behind some of the bestselling animated features of all time, helping families to dream and laugh together over the years with characters that are distinctive, relatable and humorous. We are thus delighted to partner with Universal Pictures in the global launch of DreamWorks KouKou. We are confident that this large-scale interactive DreamWorks KouKou showcase at CapitaLand malls will serve up a ‘delectable’ treat for our shoppers.”
