SALT LAKE CITY — Disney has unveiled new expansions to their parks based on “Star Wars,” “Moana” and Marvel’s “Avengers.”
Polygon reports the company unveiled Avengers Campus, which will open in phases at California Adventure in Anaheim, California, and Disneyland Paris in 2020. Similar to “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge,” Avengers Campus will involve a level of immersion and roleplaying, courtesy of Tony Stark.
“The idea is that Tony Stark has come to the D23 Expo to showcase the Global Avengers Initiative, which is the Avengers Campus in Disneyland California and the campus in Disneyland Paris, as well as his partnerships with the Worldwide Engineering Brigade and Pym Technologies,” said Caroline May, the creative director at Walt Disney Imagineering.
The new attraction will include the already-in-place “Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: Breakout!” as well as “Tony Stark’s Worldwide Engineering Brigade,” which will feature Spider-Man in a brand-new suit.
Following the fallout of Disney and Sony’s Spider-Man-centric deal, it’s unclear if Tom Holland — or any Marvel Cinematic Universe actor — will reprise their roles for the theme park addition, but that question could be answered sometime during D23.
Other new announcements centered on Disney World:
IGN reports a new “Star Wars” themed hotel called “Galactic Starcruiser” will let guests stay in a Chandrila Star Line spaceship. There’s no opening date for the lodging, but its worth noting Chandrila is the birthplace of both Rebel leader Mon Mothma and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).
Additionally, the Orlando Sentinel notes a “Moana”-themed attraction titled “Journey of Water” is coming to Epcot and appears to include some sort of splash pad, judging from concept art.
More Disney news, including a trailer for “The Mandalorian,” should be revealed at D23 starting Aug. 23.
