Marvel Avengers Campus at Disneyland Paris Shines Bright for “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” European Gala Event

Hi everyone!

The “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” cast reunited with writer and director James Gunn for the European Gala Event at Marvel Avengers Campus this past weekend at Disneyland Paris. Marvel Avengers Campus opened less than one year ago at Walt Disney Studios Park, in July 2022 and it has already made its mark! The Marvel themed land is in addition to Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel, which debuted in June 2021 (as a reimagined Marvel version of the original Disney’s Hotel New York).

Marvel Avengers Campus feels ready made for red carpet galas.

To celebrate the upcoming release of Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” Writer and Director James Gunn and cast members Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldaña, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff and Vin Diesel took an intergalactic road trip to Disneyland Paris for the European Gala Event at the Marvel Avengers Campus.

In Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” our beloved band of misfits are settling into life on Knowhere. But it isn’t long before their lives are upended by the echoes of Rocket’s turbulent past. Peter Quill, still reeling from the loss of Gamora, must rally his team around him on a dangerous mission to save Rocket’s life—a mission that, if not completed successfully, could quite possibly lead to the end of the Guardians as we know them.

The film stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldaña, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, featuring Vin Diesel as Groot and Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Sean Gunn, Chukwudi Iwuji, Will Poulter and Maria Bakalova. James Gunn is the director and also wrote the screenplay.

Kevin Feige produces with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Nikolas Korda, Simon Hatt and Sara Smith serving as executive producers. Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” opens in cinemas across Europe from May 3, 2023.

Avengers Campus, a brand-new immersive universe where Guests become recruits alongside Super Heroes

In Avengers Campus, guests become “recruits” to dive into the heart of the action alongside Super Heroes, while experiencing epic adventures, especially in thrilling experiences such as Spider-Man WEB Adventure and Avengers Assemble: Flight Force.

Avengers Campus at Disneyland Paris was created by Tony Stark himself to discover, recruit and train the next generation of Super Heroes. Recruits are empowered to take an active role alongside Super Heroes, including Star Lord & Gamora, Captain Marvel, Spider-Man and new Super Heroes such as Shuri, in her Black Panther gear. With its spectacular and unexpected encounters, restaurants, and shops, where recruits may gear up with high-tech accessories, Avengers Campus is a completely immersive experience.
