Main Tank at Village Roadshow Studios


Disney+ will film its brand new live-action sci-fi adventure original series Nautilus at Village Roadshow Studios and surrounding Gold Coast locations from early next year. 

The ten-part series, based on Jules Verne’s classic novel 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, will chart the never-before-told origin story of Captain Nemo and his legendary submarine, The Nautilus.  

Attracted into the state by the Queensland Government via Screen Queensland’s Production Attraction Strategy, Nautilus will inject an estimated $96 million into Queensland’s economy and create approximately 240 jobs for local cast and crew, plus 350 extras.
