Not too long after opening Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Disney has received permits to build a theme park centered on Marvel Comics. Well, more likely the movies and not the comics. Who cares about comics, anyway?
Anaheim has approved a handful of building permits for projects such as a bathroom overhaul, a retail outlet, a microbrewery, a character meet-and-greet area, plus improvements to behind-the-scenes buildings. The permits assess the value of the work at over $14 million.
One of the permits, allows for a 2,071-square-foot merchandise outlet, with three attached canopies.
More details about the land are expected to be released at D23, which is scheduled for Aug. 23 to 25 at the Anaheim Convention Center.
Marvel attractions are also planned to open at Hong Kong Disneyland in 2023, Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris in 2020, and at Epcot in Florida in 2021.
Disney is demolishing A Bug’s Land, based on the 1998 movie A Bug’s Life, to make room for the Marvel park.
