Movie costumes and props on display at Universal Studios Hollywood - Part two...

Following on from yesterday where I showcased an actual Oscar and movie props and costumes on display at Universal Studios Hollywood from the movies Psycho, Back to the Future, Serenity, Apollo 13, The Mummy and The Bourne Identity film franchises, here is the second installment in a three part behind-the-scenes special.

Regular visitors may remember the display of Coraline stop-motion models at ArcLight Hollywood, well here is a new selection of the fantastic miniature animation set pieces and figures to be found at Universal Studios.

Mamma Mia - The Movie

The ABBA-esque costumes I photographed at the ArcLight Hollywood from Mamma Mia - The Movie is part of one of the most popular blog entries on Jason in Hollywood, so imagine how delighted I was to find two new costumes on display from the entertaining and uplifting film. 

The outfit on the left is worn by Meryl Streep's character, Donna, and the costume of the right worn by her daughter, Sophie (played by Amanda Seyfried).

King Kong

These ship replicas are from Peter Jackson's disappointing bum-numbing remake of the classic King Kong movie and can be found on the Universal Studio Tour.
