Tyler Perry Studios will soon be open to the public.

Perry has announced that official visitor tours will begin on his vast movie-making campus in 2020. According to the New York Times, Tyler Perry Studios is larger than the iconic Hollywood lots of MGM, Disney and Paramount Pictures combined.

“Are you looking forward to going on an inspiring and historical tour of Tyler Perry Studios? We can not wait to have you aboard! The official tour dates and information will be announced next year, 2020. #StayTuned #TylerPerryStudios,” the account posted on Twitter with a photo.

As most fans know and rolling out reported, Tyler Perry Studios has rocketed into orbit since its official opening. He hosted a spectacular grand opening in early October that featured the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Cicely Tyson, Samuel L. Jackson, Halle Berry, Whoopi Goldberg and many others.

Later that month, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence from “Bad Boys For Life” and Eddie Murphy and Wesley Snipes from “Coming 2 America: Quest” filmed at Tyler Perry Studios at the same time. TPS was also where portions of the blockbuster film Black Panther and the AMC phenomenon “The Walking Dead” were shot.

In November, TPS was the site of the latest Democratic presidential debates.

Details of the studio tours are forthcoming.
