Disneyland Resort has recently debuted its new Marvel Avengers-themed attraction – Rogers: The Musical. It retells the story of Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, in a musical stage production. The limited-time show is being performed at the Hyperion Theater at Disney California Adventure Park.

But the other day (July 7), an odd alien creature was spotted loitering around the theater’s exterior. The entity is known as a Skrull (an alien lifeform from the Marvel Cinematic Universe).

Skrull Sighting

The reptilian creatures first appeared in the movie Captain Marvel (2019). They are a race of shape-shifting aliens that can often take the form of humans. A video captured and shared by Disney D23 on Twitter shows multiple clips of an alien creature outside the theater. He is spotted wearing a nametag, picking up trash, and interacting with a Cast Member.

Why Was It There?

Theme Park Guests seemed very confused yet intrigued by the sighting. Is it part of a campaign to promote the show Secret Invasion on Disney Plus (which features Nick Fury and a Skrull named Talos), the upcoming film The Marvels (2023), or just a fun little extra surprise Disney provided that day?

No one seems to be sure. But all seem like possible options.

The inclusion of a Skrull roaming around the Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure Park wouldn’t be entirely out of place. However, it seems odd for one to be roaming around the Captain America show when they don’t seem to be part of the cast.

Either way, Disney theme Park Guests are now going to be on the lookout to see when and where any other Skrulls or secret Marvel characters show up – at both Disneyland Resort in California and Walt Disney World Resort.

About Steven Wilk

Steven has a complicated relationship with Disney. As a child, he visited Walt Disney World every few years with his family. But he never understood why kids his age (and older) were so scared of Snow White or Alien Encounter. He is a former participant of the Disney College Program (left early…long story), and he also previously worked in Children’s publishing, where he adapted multiple Disney movies and TV shows. He has many controversial opinions about Disney…like having a positive view of Michael Eisner, believing Return of the Jedi is superior to The Empire Strikes Back, and that Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge should have never been built (at least not at Hollywood Studios). Every year for the past two decades, Steven has visited either Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani or went on a Disney Cruise. He’s happy to share any and all knowledge of the Disney destinations (and he likes using parenthesis a lot…as well as ellipses…)
