Starting today, Friday, Nov. 5, at Disney California Adventure, guests can meet and interact with some of the legendary heroes from the film. Sersi, Kingo and Phastos are three of the Eternals who have been spotted around Avengers Campus, particularly in the Ancient Sanctum of Doctor Strange.
In the film, Sersi (Gemma Chan), Kingo (Kumail Nanjiani) and Phastos (Brian Tyree Henry) are members of a team of powerful, immortal aliens who have been secretly living on Earth for millennia. When a tragedy occurs, the Eternals are forced to come out of hiding and reunite to fight against ancient enemies called Deviants. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Eternals are considered among if not the most powerful beings.
Disney Parks is also celebrating the release of “Eternals” with in-park experiences at both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, guests can check out the Walt Disney Presents attraction for sneak peeks at scenes from the film as well as displays of some of the costumes used in the production. A similar “Eternals” showcase is on display at the Sunset Showcase Theater in Disney California Adventure.
A new MCU movie release wouldn’t be the same without new merchandise, and there are several “Eternals” T-shirts and jackets to choose from. One new shirt is black and emblazoned with a gold Eternals symbol on the front; another is dark gray and features the epic team of immortal heroes.
If your favorite “Eternal” is the most powerful Ikaris, Disney has launched a reversible jacket that features the gold pattern of his uniform on one side and a simple dark blue color with a gold “E” on the other side.
Shirts, jackets and other merchandise inspired by the new Marvel film are available now at Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort and through shopDisney.com.
“Eternals” also stars Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Richard Madden, Kit Harington, Lia McHugh, Don Lee, Barry Keoghan and Lauren Ridloff. The film from Academy Award-winning director Chloé Zhao is now playing in theaters.
