Brie Larson and Marvel stars open Avengers Campus Disneyland Paris

Captain marvel star Brie Larson beams (not in a super hero way) in from of the Quinjet at Avengers Campus Disneyland Paris, clearly happy she doesn't have to queue for rides

Captain Marvel star Brie Larson, Ms Marvel Iman Vellani, and Guardians of the Galaxy’s Mantis Pom Klementieff, were all in attendance for the official opening of Marvel Avengers Campus at Disneyland Paris

The Marvel Cinematic Universe stars were joined by Disney CEO Bob Chapek and a host of celebrities, including the Black Eyed Peas, French soccer star Raphael Varane and basketball pro Tony Parker. 

The new themed area opens to visitors on July 20.

“Our Imagineers, Marvel Studios teams, and everyone involved have truly outdone themselves to bring you this action-packed world” said Chapek. “I think our guests will be astounded by the detail and creativity at Avengers Campus as they explore and become part of a bigger universe.”

Costumed superheroes from the Marvel roster posed while fireworks exploded over the Quinjet platform.

The area is expected to boost family traffic, and follows the opening of the first Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure. The attraction is also coming to Hong Kong Disneyland.

Avengers Campus at Disneyland Paris, we’re told,  was created by Tony Stark to recruit and train the next generation of heroes. To that end, the Walt Disney Imagineering teams in Paris have created a variety of fun experiences, where Avenger hopefuls can shoot webs from their wrists, save the universe with Iron Man and Captain Marvel, and train with Black Panther’s Dora Milaje.

There’s also shopping experiences and themed eateries, such as PYM Kitchen and Stark Factory, a pizza joint.

“This is such an amazing year for Disneyland Paris. Back in March, we kicked off our 30th-anniversary celebration inviting guests to enter into a new era with us. As part of this tremendous milestone for our resort, Marvel Avengers Campus marks a significant step forward in the ongoing expansion of Walt Disney Studios Park and our overall transformation, with original storytelling and a uniquely engaging experience,” said Disneyland Paris President Natacha Rafalski.

In June 2021, Disneyland Paris reopened the Disney Hotel New York with a Marvel comics theme, showcasing 350 pieces of artwork created by more than 110 artists. To book your stay at the Disney Hotel New York click here.
