14,000 people will reportedly be hired for the new theme park.

Universal Studios have a bit of an interesting situation on their hands, with regards to their theme parks in Orlando.

A lot of their main attractions are based on characters from Marvel Studios, which as you may know, has been bought by Disney.

However, this does not mean that Disney will be able to use its characters in Disneyworld, as Universal will still have the rights, but Disney WILL be able to use the characters in Disneyland Paris.

It's all a bit confusing.

What is important here is that Universal Studios have just announced plans to develop a brand new theme park in Orlando.

There is no confirmed date for when the park will be open to the public yet, but some extremely vague concept art has been released:

Brian Roberts, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Comcast Corporation added: "Our new park represents the single-largest investment Comcast NBC Universal has made in its theme park business and in Florida overall."

Rumours online have suggested the theme park could have a Nintendo theme, but there is no confirmation as of yet.
