The 51-foot-tall ship, which can be seen in the Marvel films that inspired the upcoming roller coaster, will be assembled over the next few weeks and will tie into the landing pad area that surrounds the ship, Riddley wrote.
“Once complete, this ship will be the signature icon of the Wonders of Xandar pavilion and immediately establish the Xandarian storyline guests will discover inside this new attraction,” Riddley wrote. “Plus, the bold blue and gold colors will make this a stunning new addition to World Discovery.”
