Disney to open new Marvel world in 2020

Last month, fans of the Star Wars franchise were ecstatic to learn that a brand new Star Wars-themed land had just opened in Disneyland, California.

Reportedly costing a staggering $1 billion, the immersive Star Wars World boasts an impressive Millennium Falcon experience and a 'Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance' ride.

Take a look inside Disney's new Star Wars theme park:

But rather than ride on the success of the newly built 'Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge', Disney have taken it upon themselves to work on a new Marvel world in 2020.

The company has just obtained permits from the City of Anaheim, to begin work on their latest expansion at Disneyland's companion park, California Adventure.

A Bug’s Land which is based on characters from Disney's A Bug’s Life is reportedly being demolished in order to create space for the new superhero attraction.

The currently unnamed Marvel World will centre around Marvel superheroes from the films and the comics.

The works will include a bathroom overhaul and the building of a retail outlet, microbrewery, a character meet-and-greet area and overall improvements to existing buildings.

Disney, who bought Marvel Entertainment for $4 billion in 2009, has yet to comment on the planned works and on which attractions will be included when it is finally unveiled. It is believed, however, that there will be an interactive Spider-Man ride.

They also plan to cater to Marvel fans around the globe, with Marvel-themed attractions set to be launched in Hong Kong Disneyland in 2023, Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris in 2020, and at a second US location in Florida's Epcot park in 2021.
