First Pictures of Ant-Man and the Wasp Nano Battle Opening at HKDL Tomorrowland March 31 !

Ant-Man and the Wasp Nano Battle will probably be the first Disney Parks attraction to open this year and the opening date was announced, it will be March 31st at HKDL Tomorrowland!

The new attraction will send guests on a critical mission with Ant-Man and The Wasp who have answered Iron Man’s call for support in defending Hong Kong against Hydra’s attack.

This high-tech, high-energy interactive adventure will begin with a visit to the S.H.I.E.L.D. Science and Technology Pavilion, a newly opened facility at Stark Expo in Tomorrowland set up to showcase S.H.I.E.L.D.’s latest technological developments.

A seemingly ordinary visit will soon be interrupted by Hydra attempting to steal the Arc Reactor atop Stark Tower in Kowloon, Hong Kong, while its artificial intelligence Arnim Zola sends an army of Swarmbots to the S.H.I.E.L.D. Pavilion to steal a Data Core with highly confidential information.

As he battles Swarmbots in Kowloon, Iron Man calls in Ant-Man and The Wasp to defend the pavilion, because only they can shrink down to get between the bots’ armor to destroy them from the inside. With thousands of bots and only two of them, Ant-Man and The Wasp call on guests at the pavilion for help.

Aboard one of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s newest combat vehicles, D/AGR – the Defense/Assault Ground Rover (aka “the Dagger”) – guests are issued an EMP Blaster and engage in a heroic battle alongside Ant-Man and The Wasp to defeat Zola and his Swarmbots.

The attraction features “Ant-Man and The Wasp” stars Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly reprising their roles, as well as scoring by Christophe Beck, composer for the Ant-Man movies.  Take a look at the video below for a sneak peek!

A special media presentation happened this week-end with WDI Imagineers and HKDL Main Street Gazette had the good idea to filmed in 4K all of it!
