From the press release:

Today, Chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company Robert A. Iger announced plans for a 2 billion euro, multi-year expansion for Disneyland Paris alongside French President Emmanuel Macron at the Palais de l'Elysée in Paris. The new development will include a transformation of the Walt Disney Studios Park, adding three new areas that are based on Marvel, Frozen and Star Wars, along with multiple new attractions and live entertainment experiences.

I was lucky enough to snag a look at the pre-show for one of the Star Wars exhibits, currently simply titled; "Ze Star Wars, no?"

so is this the last cleansing of Eisner's "on the cheap" legacy?

From the artwork I'm a bit unsure of three things.

1) Is the Marvel area just going to over take the current Aerosmith coaster (Iron Man) and surrounding area.... or is it going to be a hybrid scenario like Disneyland's Star Tours and SW:GE, one whole land and a related IP attraction stuck somewhere else. In other words, where is the Marvel area because it doesn't look like it's in the new "build out" area around the lake (see #3 below) EDITED: Never mind, further reporting shows the area around Rock n Roller coaster to be Marvel area, no Avengers ride, but apparently an Avengers Stunt show

2) Is the Frozen area a complete copy of Tokyo's Frozen land, or is there something new here in the "mountain" that isn't just the Epcot flume ride copied.....

3) what the hell is that blurry area off to the right of the lake....that's a HUGE walkway and that building isn't currently "there". Is that a representation of the huge ass Avengers attraction that I'm assuming will be copied at DCA and HKDL?

PS: Is that fountain imagery on the lower right section of the lake just artistic license, or is that supposed to be a fountain show a la World of Color or Rivers of Suck?

Further Edit: Appears to be a NEW Mater/Little Green Men/Baymax flat ride stuck into Toy Story Land which currently doesn't exist

As mentioned elsewhere, that's another huge expansion pad between Frozen and SW, though the SW area appears to be "smaller" than DL or Orlando. Could just be rushed concept art.

This is double the amount of money poured into DCAs Grand Californian Makeover.
