March 19, 2014 – First on Inside Universal – Universal has recently filed a trademark application for the name Fast & Furious: Supercharged.
Listed as a brand pertaining to amusement park ride and amusement park attractions, this recent application could hint that a new tour animation may be in the pipeline for the Studio Tour.
While entertainment companies regularly file trademark applications as a preemptive measure to protect themselves from any potential litigation, Universal’s new entry collaborates with the rumored Fast & Furious tour animation on the former site of the Mummy’s Tomb. While Universal has yet to officially announce any plans, construction has been occurring at the site since the Tomb was demolished late last year.
The original Fast & Furious: Extreme Close-up tour animation closed earlier last year, and has been inactive since.
