Hong Kong Disneyland closing

After reopening on June 18, Hong Kong Disneyland is shutting down again due to a new COVID-19 outbreak. The Hong Kong Disneyland Resort hotels, however, will remain open with an adjusted level of services. This is the latest setback for Disney – they had to delay reopening Disneyland in California, and they’re currently facing heavy scrutiny for reopening Disney World in Orlando, despite a huge spike in coronavirus cases in Florida over the last several days.

Ant-Man ride

The Walt Disney Company is used to dealing with stunning successes, but so far, the Hong Kong Disneyland theme park has been something of a disappointment. The park’s attendance numbers aren’t as high as Disney execs would like, so in order to give the park a slight boost, they’re turning to some superheroes to help save the day.

Hong Kong Disneyland’s Tomorrowland section is being transformed into a mini Marvel land with attractions based on the cinematic versions of Marvel comics characters. Now we have a new look at an Ant-Man ride that will feature stars Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly. Find out the name of the new attraction below, and watch a quick teaser with a few pieces of concept art and interviews with the stars.

The theme park rights to the Marvel characters became pretty complicated when Disney acquired the comic book giant back in 2009.

While Disney parks all over the world are getting new attractions over the next few years, it looks like Hong Kong Disneyland will be getting the most love, with new lands centered around Marvel superheroes and Frozen, a live show based on Moana, and a brand new central castle.
