Disney Parks is going from one wildly successful franchise to another.

Now that Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has opened, it’s moving on with its plans to build a Marvel-themed land at California Adventure Park, according to a new report in the Los Angeles Times.

The Times reported the city of Anaheim has approved building permits for a bathroom overhaul, a retail outlet, a microbrewery, a character meet-and-greet area, plus improvements to behind-the-scenes buildings. One permit is listed for 2,071 square feet merchandise building. The project is valued at $14 million.

Disney declined to comment to the Times, though the paper suggested more details may be shared during the D23 expo, which is scheduled for Aug. 23 to 25 at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Expected to open in 2020, the Marvel-themed expansion will be anchored by Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: Breakout, which opened in 2017.

Marvel attractions are also planned to open at Hong Kong Disneyland in 2023, at Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris in 2020 and at Epcot in Florida in 2021.
