The Federal Arts Minister Senator the Hon George Brandis QC has agreed to provide Disney with a $21 million tax break to lure the production away from the United States to the Gold Coast, which will stimulate the Australian film production sector which has been relatively quiet with international productions due to the high dollar.

Notable productions to film at the studio in the past include 'Peter Pan', 'Scooby Doo' and 'The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of The Dawn Treader'.
