BREAKING: “Stuntronics” Spider-Man Robot Will Swing Above Guests When Avengers Campus Opens at Disneyland Resort

Today, Disney has shared that guests visiting Disney California Adventure park in the near future may be able to catch a glimpse of the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man himself swinging above the rooftops of Avengers Campus thanks to a “stuntronic” robot.

Check out this video of the Spider-Man animatronic practicing some of his amazing acrobatic feats at a top secret location:

In June 2018, Disney released footage of these “Stuntronics” in action, the latest development in audio-animatronics technology from Walt Disney Imagineering. These autonomous figures fly through the air performing, as you might have guessed, aerial stunts.

So, who’s excited to see Spidey swing by over the Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure (opening Summer 2020)?

  1. This animatronic Spidey was shown in test-mode during the final episode of Disney+’s Imagineering series. I’ve just been waiting for the online sites to recognize what the crane-like decide over DCA’s coming Spidey attraction was for. I can’t wait to see it in person.

  2. Hate to say it but I feel this will Only be used for the opening ceremony, like the SWGE stunt shows we saw in both the East and West Coast, if not than lets just hope Bob Chapek & company don’t cut all the live entertainment like they (seemingly) did at Galaxy’s Edge.

    • I disagree. Why post a video about this and build a permanent decorative crane for something they will use for the opening. That doesn’t jive….even if they are going a bit cheap on Marvel land as a whole.

      • Aaron, there was a HUGE social media blitz by Disney about a dragon flying over the New Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom in 2012. And it was a one-time thing for a media preview, which let a LOT of people down who were eagerly anticipating their chance to see a flying dragon, only to find that it was only going to happen once.

        Despite the palpable disappointment of the masses, I expect this to be a repeat. Partly because Disney wants to put on a great show for the media who will show footage all over the world (and the internet), partly because they want to show off new tech that they developed. But mostly, imagine lawyers asking “so what happens if the launcher fails and this Spider-Man flies into a crowd of guests?”

        They may be willing to take that chance on a media preview (and possibly keep media out of the potential “crash zone” in case something goes wrong), but to do this over the heads of park guests on a regular basis would just be too risky.

        I sincerely hope you’re right and I’m wrong, and that the technology is advanced and reliable enough for this to be a regular thing, but I wouldn’t get my hopes up.

    • You aren’t wrong. This is complex and outdoor. They couldn’t even keep the speak n say guy at Pixar Place working in Disney World. No way this is a long term item.
