On Wednesday monrning, Disney unveiled more details about it's upcoming new theme park in China -- including attractions for Marvel, Star Wars, and more. Deadline reports that company chairman & CEO Bob Iger revealed plans for six themed worlds at Shanghai Disney Resort, which has a budget of $5.5 billion.

"Our goal was to create something that was authentically Disney and distinctly Chinese, and we believe we've achieved the perfect blend," said Iger during the presentation at Shanghai Expo Center.

Although no new details on the Marvel attractions were revealed at the media event, Iger announced the Star Wars themed attractions will be anchored by "Star Wars Launch Bay," that will have museum-like exhibits as well as chances to meet characters from the Lucasfilm franchise.

Disney also plans an expanded Pirates of the Caribbean experience, with an entire themed world called "Treasure Cove." There will also be a world based on Disney's classic animated films called "Fantasyland," a future-themed world called "Tomorrowland," a general one called "Gardens of Imagination," and more.

As part of Disney's larger footprint in China, Shangai Disney Resort will also feature two hotels and a downtown area called Disneytown.
