Disneyland Announces Marvel, Star Wars And Frozen Lands!

New themed lands set to add to the magic!

Following on from Disney’s acquisition of Marvel and Lucas Film, it has been revealed that the Disneyland Paris park is set to add three new lands to its layout. The three new areas will be themed around Star Wars, Marvel, and Frozen.

The huge commercial successes of all three franchises are no doubt the reason for the plans behind these new areas. Unfortunately, details are very thin on the ground as of writing. With plans to begin the project next year, fans of Disney and these franchises have only been given a peek at the concept art for how the completed additions to the park might look.

What we do know is that the studios will include Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, an attraction currently under construction at Disneyworld in Florida and California. The details of this new sci-fi attraction are still relatively under wraps, but it looks like visitors will be able to ride the Millennium Falcon, and that the park itself is set on the planet Batuu! A similar project on a Frozen-themed land has also been announced for Hong Kong’s Disney park, and the Backlot area surrounding the upcoming Marvel-themed rollercoaster featuring Aerosmith – due to open next year- will likely be redesigned to reflect the Marvel theme.

President Macron himself announced the plans to expand the park on Twitter, after a meeting with Disney’s CEO Rob Iger. The project is considered to be the “biggest investment in the park since its opening in 1992”, with an approximate total cost of  2 billion Euros. With little concrete detail to sate the fans eager for more news, the concept sketches reveal a mockingly brief glimpse into the expansion.

The completed new areas are expected to have openings between 2020 and 2025, so fans of the parks and their globally-adored franchises will have to wait until then to see if Disney can pull off the magic they are capable of.
