Be Inspired: Tyler Perry’s New Studio Is the Kingdom that We All Needed To See

Rhea Peckherd | October 8, 2019

Atlanta, GA (CTZNSIX)-

Hollywood Superstar Tyler Perry opened his mega-studio in Atlanta, Georgia with a star-studded welcome party fit for royalty.

The star-studded affair welcomed celebrities like Oprah, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Will Smith, Halle Berry, Spike Lee, and others into the massive $250 Million studio to celebrate its opening.

You Can Do It Too

Perry’s studio opening put a smile on the hearts of millions of young black dreamers who have been raised in a society that hasn’t created too many stories like Perry’s. Tyler Perry saw much resistance along his journey including many people who were “uneasy” about his Madea character. Perry knew that he was being ignored by Hollywood but continued to use that energy to propel his journey.

“I clearly believe that I’m ignored in Hollywood, for sure, and that’s fine. I get it,” Perry told Gayle King on CBS This Morning. “My audience and the stories that I tell are African-American stories specific to a certain audience, specific to a certain group of people that I know, that I grew up, and we speak a language,” he added. “Hollywood doesn’t necessarily speak the language. A lot of critics don’t speak that language. So, to them, it’s like, ‘What is this?’”

Perry didn’t let the fear of being ignored by Hollywood slow down his journey. He knew his purpose and mission and now he has a studio big enough to not have to ever ask for anything. His new studio is the size of 3 major studios combined. 330 Acres with a possible 160 more on the way.

His studio shines a light of inspiration right outside of Atlanta. Many black creatives have already expressed how Perry’s new studio has inspired them:

Moral of the story: keep working hard on your passion and purpose then invite us to your studio opening as well.

Happy hunting!
