Thor is Headed to Disneyland; First Marvel Meet-and-Greet Character at Disneyland Revealed
Well, it appears as though an Avenger will soon be heading to Disneyland. In anticipation of the release of Marvel's newest movie, Thor: The Dark World, the California theme park will introduce Thor as a new meet-and-greet character. Hit the jump for more details...
The Thor experience will give fans a chance to meet the character and also visit Asgard, but it's not clear right now where in the theme park the Asgard set up will be, and to what extent it will recreate the fictional realm.
Though details are scarce right now, Disney announced that tourists will be able to visit Asgard this fall and come face-to-face with the Mighty Avenger, Thor. Knowing Disney, this sounds like Disneyland is getting a temporary Thor-themed exhibit that will look like it was torn straight out of the films, complete with a Chris Hemsworth look-alike to pose for photos with your astonished and giddy children. And who says you won't be the astonished and giddy one?
However, Loki would be in Asgardian Custody and won't appear at the park. Disney communications manager Shawn Slater said, Meeting Loki would be pretty awesome! [But] I’m afraid there are no plans at this time, though, to bring Loki to the park.
Thus far, the most immersive Marvel experience at a Disney theme park was Tony Stark's Hall of Armor at Disneyland, which tied into "Iron Man 3."
"Thor: The Dark World" is due in theaters on Nov. 8.
