First Images for Disney Kingdoms “Enchanted Tiki Room” Comic Arrive
Disney Parks have inspired some magical and thrilling comic books known as the Disney Kingdom series. The collaboration of Marvel and Walt Disney Imagineers has resulted in some original tales about some of the parks’ beloved attractions, such as Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and the Haunted Mansion. News of the next Kingdoms comic for the Enchanted Tiki Room attraction broke earlier this summer, and now we have some great new image previews for the series, courtesy of Disney Parks Blog. I’m a big fan of the Haunted Mansion series, and I can’t wait to read this new series!
First is a variant cover featuring Orange Bird. Orange Bird was created by Disney for the Florida Citrus Commission as a mascot in the 1970’s. The character was used in shorts promoting Florida oranges, and then after falling out of use in the 1980’s, he experienced a revival in popularity. Now you can find him on Disney Parks merchandise, including this cover!
Next we have a few story pages, including one with Agnes, a new character for the comic series. Agnes has a dog Alfred, and the two live on the mysterious isle where the Enchanted Tiki Room is located.
Finally, a few more variant covers will be available.
According to Marvel.com, the comics will be a five-issue series sharing a story about the Enchanted Tiki Room.
“Written by Jon Adams—with the help of Disney Imagineers, Tom Morris, Andy DiGenova, Josh Shipley, and Brian Crosby—the five-issue series is inspired by the beloved Disney attraction, the Enchanted Tiki Room. The story follows various characters on their journeys of mystery and adventure while on the enchanted island, through a series of vignettes, before coming together in a revealing—and climactic—ending that unmasks the alluring mystery.”
The Enchanted Tiki Room comic series arrives in Disney Parks this fall, and at select comic retailers October 6, 2016. I’m excited to read these because I love the imagination that the comics reveal, and also feel like these attraction stories – and the stories “behind” them” – are better suited to play out in comics, because anything goes.
