This morning, Disney finally released more info on the new Marvel themed lands coming to Disney California Adventure and Walt Disney Studios Paris.
Above is the first piece of concept art that has been released giving us a decent idea what the land in Paris will look like.
Disney also made a vague statement about the attraction line-up for the two new lands:
“And soon, in both Disney California Adventure park and Disneyland Paris, guests will encounter the heroes in new and exciting ways, from the mystic arts of Doctor Strange to the gravity-defying feats of Spider-Man. Guests will also experience the latest in Pym Technology with Ant-Man and Wasp and be wowed as Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Captain America and more leap into action on a moment’s notice.”
You may recall that we shared with you the attraction line-up for the Disney California Adventure land a few weeks ago, and you can read that all here. It sounds like Paris will also have an Ant-Man eatery and a Doctor Strange show to match California, as well as the Spider-Man attraction. The main difference will likely be that Paris will have the Iron Man rethemed Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster, while phase 2 of the California project will bring them a newly constructed roller coaster ride.
Disney also released this description of the story that will tie the MARVEL lands around the world together:
There was an idea. To bring together a group of remarkable people, to see if they could become something more. It was called the Avengers Initiative.
That original idea has now evolved into a brand-new global Avengers Initiative. One that brings us—the next generation of remarkable people—together. To find our power and become something more. To see if we can work alongside the Avengers so we may all become stronger together.
The Stark Expo in Hong Kong was to be a first step: A world exposition whose theme of ‘A Better Tomorrow Today,’ was meant to inspire and motivate through technological innovation. However, shortly after it opened, the Expo was attacked by the forces of Hydra. When even more powerful forces threatened the entire planet, the Avengers realized that the Earth needs more heroes.
So today, to better defend the planet, the Avengers are setting up new Headquarters and technology sharing exchanges around the globe to empower and inspire all potential recruits willing to step up and become heroes.
In California and Paris, Tony Stark is retrofitting two of his father’s Stark Industries sites into new hubs for training and innovation. Through partnerships with S.H.I.E.L.D., Pym Technologies, Masters of the Mystic Arts and the new Worldwide Engineering Brigade, The Avengers and their allies will forge new global campuses to champion the next generation of heroes. Who’s ready to answer the call?
We expect more detailed announcements about both projects in the coming months, likely at the D23 Expo in 2019.
