Now that Galaxy’s Edge has been fully realized at Disneyland Park, attention has turned over the other side of the esplanade where we’ll be able to live out our super-hero fantasies soon at Avengers Campus at Disney’s California Adventure.
The first phase of the new land is slated to open this summer and we could not be more excited! Scratch that, actually we can, because Disney has just revealed that Spider-Man himself will be swinging above our heads at the campus. Annnnd they shared a video with us!
Not only is our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man going to be involved in a new attraction at the Worldwide Engineering Brigade (WEB) Building, he will be periodically performing high-flying acrobatics over guests. If you watched the final episode of The Imagineering Story on Disney+, you might remember seeing Imagineers testing a new kind of animatronic.
This is a Stuntronic, an audio-animatronic that is not connected to any base and is able to make dynamic movements. It uses on-board sensing to perform acrobatic feats reliably and accurately. With this new form of mechanical animation, Spider-Man can jump, flip, and swing over Avengers Campus regularly.
Check out our video on Disney’s new technology to learn even more about these new stuntronics!
