It’s always an exciting event when a new character joins a Walt Disney World or Disneyland theme Park. When there are two new additions, it’s even better.

Indiana Jones

Beginning June 30, Indiana Jones will appear outside Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye at Disneyland Park. This is undoubtedly a tie-in to the new Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny (2023) film being released on the same day.

It seems that the Indiana Jones who will be appearing in Adventureland is based on the younger version of the character, not the one portrayed by 80-year-old Harrison Ford in the new film. However, the upcoming movie involves a lost artifact that can change the course of time, perhaps a younger Indiana Jones may not be entirely out of place.

In addition to the fedora-wearing archeologist, Disneyland Resort just debuted a new Marvel character.

Nick Fury

Joining the Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure Park will be Nick Fury. In addition to being a staple of the Avengers movies, Nick Fury, played by Samuel L Jackson, was a main character in Captain Marvel (2019) and featured in the Secret Invasion (2023) series on Disney Plus.

The Avengers Campus is a recent retheme to a section of the California theme Park. The Marvel-themed land began when Disney changed the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror into Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout! It also incorporated Web Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure and Doctor Strange: Mysteries of the Mystic Arts. Formerly “A Bug’s Land,” the newer area of the Park also features Avengers Headquarters, themed restaurants, and multiple meet-and-greets with various superheroes.

There has been talk of Marvel taking on a more significant role in Walt Disney World parks – specifically Hollywood Studios, but that has not been confirmed. If visiting Disneyland or Disney California Adventure Park in the upcoming days, be sure to stop by and meet the new characters!

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…)
