AVENGERS CAMPUS UNVEILED IN STAR-STUDDED DISNEY CALIFORNIA OPENING CEREMONY
Super Heroes assembled to celebrate the momentous dedication of Avengers Campus Wednesday night in an epic ceremony at Disney California Adventure Park. Teaming up with Iron Man, Spider-Man, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, and more, Disney CEO Bob Chapek unveiled the new land, which opens to the public at the Disneyland Resort on June 4, 2021, PR Newswire reported.
In a live-stream event to dedicate Avengers Campus, Chapek was joined in front of Avengers Headquarters near the shining Quinjet by Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Josh D'Amaro and Marvel Studios President/Marvel Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige, along with Paul Rudd, star of the "Ant-Man" films, Anthony Mackie from the hit Disney+ series "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier," and "Iron Man" director and actor Jon Favreau.
Invited guests were among the very first to create their own heroic experiences in the land, encountering Super Heroes and slinging webs just like Spider-Man on the new attraction WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure.
"On behalf of our Cast of Superheroes, I couldn't be more excited to welcome our guests to this epic new land," said Ken Potrock, president of the Disneyland Resort. "Just as Avengers come together for the common good, the Disneyland Resort is ready to power up with Anaheim and Southern California to drive tourism, rebuild businesses and strengthen our communities."
An entirely new land, Avengers Campus is devoted to discovering, recruiting, and training the next generation of Superheroes. Guests are invited to team up with the Avengers and their allies to live out their Super Hero dreams in this fully immersive land that mixes innovation with storytelling, and fun for all ages.
Once guests step into Avengers Campus, they will be part of the action as it unfolds around them and their interactions with the Avengers and their allies. The new land was designed by Walt Disney Imagineering in collaboration with the teams that guide the Avengers franchise.
Avengers Campus brings together Earth's Mightiest Heroes for the common good, and they're calling all recruits to join the action: Team up with the Avengers and their allies; sling webs with Spider-Man, taste-test inventive food and drinks and become part of a bigger universe. Kids and guests of all ages will find their powers as they encounter some of their favorite Super Heroes, with a chance to live out their own heroic story.
Guests have the chance to witness Spider-Man swinging into action high above Avengers Campus with gravity-defying, never seen before acrobatic feats in a Disney park. That leads them to the new attraction, WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, which takes guests on an interactive escapade. And that's just the beginning of the fun. Guests will train with Black Panther and Wakanda's elite guards, the Dora Milaje; team up to save the Guardians of the Galaxy from The Collector's Fortress; encounter Super Heroes (and villains), and experience the thrills as Avengers hold off their foes and save the day. Those seeking provisions for their next mission will find them at Pym Test Kitchen featuring Impossible™.
While exploring Avengers Campus, recruits may encounter Iron Man in his new armor, the Mark 80. Ant-Man and The Wasp, along with Okoye, appear for the first time at the Disneyland Resort, and Doctor Strange will train recruits in the ways of the mystic arts at an Ancient Sanctum. Black Widow, Black Panther, Thor, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America, and Captain Marvel are among those joining the action.
Step into a new place in the universe
The doors to Avengers Campus welcome all Avengers, their allies, and new recruits. Tony Stark offered up the site, formerly one of his father's Stark Industries complexes, as a place to train the next generation of Superheroes.
The story of the land unfolds with authentic detail as Avengers Campus is comprised of several heroic locations, each hosted by a different Avenger or their ally to share their unique powers, technology, and knowledge with recruits. Optimistic and forward-looking, these represent galactic spaces, mystic places, modern architecture, and sleek technology.
The first key address is the Worldwide Engineering Brigade – also known as WEB, where bright innovators like Peter Parker have been assembled by Tony Stark to invent new technologies and equip everyday people to become heroes. WEB is home to WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, the first Disney ride-through attraction featuring the iconic Super Hero.
Avengers Headquarters is at the heart of the land, an iconic building where guests may catch a glimpse of the Avengers springing into action ready to save the day. A shining Quinjet sits atop its roof as a beacon for the campus.
