ACTRESS Iman Vellani, who stars as Ms. Marvel in her own superhero series on Disney+, has signed up for a new adventure on Disney’s newest cruise ship.
With less than two weeks to go to the christening of the Disney Wish, Iman is joining a star-studded line-up for the ship’s interactive MCU dining experience.
As Ms. Marvel, she will appear in Avengers: Quantum Encounter, a show which runs in the Worlds of Marvel restaurant on board.
The first-of-its-kind cinematic dining adventure already includes Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly as The Wasp, Anthony Mackie as Captain America, and Brie Larson as Captain Marvel.
It’s said to be Disney Cruise Line’s most ambitious dining experience ever, and is being described as like dining inside an epic Marvel movie.
Writing on the Disney Parks blog, Danny Handke, Senior Creative Director at Walt Disney Imagineering, explains: “Throughout dinner, guests take part in a hands-on demonstration of the latest and greatest Pym Tech, the Quantum Core, hosted by Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne (Ant-Man and The Wasp).
“But this tech is so advanced that it attracts a very unwelcome visitor to the Disney Wish: Ultron, voiced by actor Ross Marquand, eager to get his hands on this powerful quantum technology.
“Captain America and Captain Marvel arrive just in time to take on an army of Ultron’s sentries in an Avengers-level battle on the upper decks of the ship.
“With them is hero-in-training Ms. Marvel, who puts her cosmic powers to the test alongside some of her favorite Avengers … while totally fangirling the whole time.
“We are so excited to be the first Disney vacation experience to feature Iman Vellani in this groundbreaking role.
“Ms. Marvel adds even more humour, heart and heroics to our already action-packed show, and we can’t wait for guests to experience it for themselves in just a few short weeks when the Disney Wish officially sets sail!”
A spectacular ship naming ceremony will be live-streamed on the Disney Parks blog on June 29 at 11am ET, which equates to 4pm BST here in the UK.
