Marvel’s Moon Knight makes his official debut at Disney’s California Adventure Park following the release of the Disney+ show’s first episode. Moon Knight sees Oscar Isaac join the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Marc Spector, a former CIA agent turned mercenary who lives with dissociative identity disorder. The series follows Isaac as both Steven Grant and Spector, and also stars Ethan Hawke as Arthur Harrow and May Calamawy as Layla El-Faouly. Moon Knigth episode 1 released on Disney+ this week, with a further 5 episodes set to follow.
Isaac’s character is granted super-human powers after making a deal with the Egyptian god Khonshu, leading Steven and Marc to share the alter-ego Moon Knight. The white cloaked vigilante often sports an intricately detailed, somewhat mummified appearance, as well as another more suave outfit choice that sees him don a bright-white three-piece suit. From promotional imagery and what was briefly teased in the show’s first episode, the MCU’s recreations offer a near-perfect match to the character’s previous comic book appearances, with many delighted at the final result. Now, fans have the opportunity to get a better look at Moon Knight’s mummified suit in person.

Disney has been actively incorporating a number of exciting Marvel elements into their parks over the past few years, including a terrifying appearance from Zombie Captain America from Marvel’s What If…? at their Halloween event last year. On the opposite coast, park-goers are gearing up for the opening of the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind coaster which is set to open in Walt Disney World’s EPCOT this summer. Riders will get to experience one of the longest enclosed coasters in the world as they are called on to help the Guardians on an exciting quest of galactic proportions.
While audiences still have a lot more to learn about Moon Knight and his origins, many will be incredibly excited to see him make his in-person debut at Disneyland. With rumors circulating that Disney is looking to finally bring back their close-contact meet and greets, it may not be long until guests can get a selfie with the masked vigilante. Those not on the west coast, however, can catch up with Moon Knight on Disney+, as each new episode is set to release weekly.
