Weeks after launching his ultra-modern $250 million film studio in Atlanta, actor, and director, Tyler Perry has given fans an exclusive behind-the-gates tour of the 330-acre property.

The tour which was in conjunction with Architecture Digest was designed to open fans up to the luxury of the property.

“Today we take you to Atlanta, Georgia to tour the sprawling Tyler Perry Studios. Home to productions like Marvel’s Black Panther and AMC Networks’ The Walking Dead.”

“The self-made entertainment legend’s production compound is larger than Warner Bros and Walt Disney’s Burbank studios combined,” the detailed description reads. 

The studio is the largest movie studio in the U.S., and North America.

It is currently the epicenter of Coming 2 America and Bad Boys for Life including Perry’s “The Oval,” “Sistas” and “Bruh.”

According to Rollingout, it could be the busiest studio in the U.S. at the moment. 

Early in October, Perry threw a star-studded party to commemorate the opening of the film studio in Atlanta.

Jackson, the Clintons, Tiffany Haddish, Michael Ealy, Halle Berry, Taraji P. Henson, Jill Scott, Whoopi Goldberg, Keshia Knight Pulliam, and Cecily Tyson.
