MACAU —

Las Vegas Sands' China arm is licensing Dreamworks characters for a new attraction at one of its Macau casino resorts.

Executives said Tuesday that Sands China would be able to use characters like Shrek and Kung Fu Panda's Po for an attraction at the resort starting July 1.

They released few details but said one idea could involve hotel guests being able to eat meals with the characters. They did not disclose the investment amount or how long the agreement would last.

A Dreamworks executive said the deal would not involve Sands' casinos.

The self-governing Chinese region of Macau is the world's biggest casino market but authorities want to diversify away from gambling.
