A special congratulations to Tyler Perry’. From living in his car 25 years ago, to becoming the owner of a major studio. The successful filmmaker, actor, director, and producer will surely go down in history.
Tyler officially unveiled his massive studio to the world in Atlanta last weekend. The former army base of 330-acres acquired by Perry in 2015, now contains 12 sound stages and is reportedly larger than the Burbank, California, lots owned by Warner Bros., Walt Disney Studios and Paramount studios combined.
Top celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, Taraji P. Henson, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Cicely Tyson, Sidney Poitier and Jill Scott to name a few, celebrated the opening.
Tyler Perry is now the first African American to own a major film production studio of this magnitude. Congratulations to Tyler Perry on the grand opening of his studios.
