Each of us spoke about the passion we have for bringing these exciting characters to life and highlighted how we’ll be delivering on the authenticity and innovation these stories deserve through our close collaboration. We were happy to present more about what we have coming to Disney parks around the world, including our Avengers Campus at Disneyland Resort and Disneyland ParisDisney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel at Disneyland Paris; and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind coming to Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort. It was great to talk directly with some of our most ardent fans, right in the city where this epic story-universe was first created.

Panel attendees also discovered the awesome artwork shown above by artist Liam Brazier featuring the one and only Spider-Man! This is just one of over 300 pieces of art that will be displayed throughout Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel, at Disneyland Paris. We can’t wait for you to check it out when it opens next summer!
