Disney shared new details about the MCU's first real-life musical coming to the Disneyland Resort this summer. 

Marvel fans first saw an MCU musical in Hawkeye for Disney+. Promotion for that production, Rogers: The Musical, soon became a Marvel Easter egg, appearing in projects like Spider-Man: No Way Home

But now, as part of a Disney100 Celebration limited-time engagement, Disney and Marvel Studios are making this MCU reference a reality.

Back in February, Disney released a teaser for Rogers: The Musical coming to the Disneyland Resort showing Peggy Carter with the musical's playbill in hand.

Now, Disney unveiled a first look at this real-world production, as well as a few spoilery details. 

Rogers: The Musical Disney

As the concept art shows, Disney's Rogers: The Musical will show highlight Steve Rogers' Captain America origin story. 

However, despite being a one-act show, the production also revisits Cap's Avengers: Endgame time-traveling adventures, his romance with Peggy Carter, and, just like in Hawkeye, his role in the Battle of New York from 2012's The Avengers.

Joining Cap, the Avengers, and Peggy is Nick Fury who, according to Disney, fans will be singing.

Rogers: The Musical's song list includes "Save the City" from Hawkeye, "Star Spangled Man" from Captain America: The First Avenger, and five new original songs. 

The show runs for 30 minutes from Tuesday through Saturday most weeks at the Hyperion Theater at the Disney California Adventure. 

The following is a look at the theater's newly updated marquee:

Disney California Adventure's Hyperion Theater is conveniently (and appropriately) located next to the park's Avengers Campus.

However, it's important to note that, unlike Avengers Campus itself, Disney describes Rogers: The Musical as a limited-time event and not a permanent addition.

The show is also short, clocking in at just 30 minutes. The fact that Disney intends to retell Cap's MCU journey through "Save the City," "Star-Spangled Man," and five brand-new songs suggest a fast-paced show but still one Marvel fans will have to see.

In addition to the musical stylings of Nick Fury, no doubt MCU audiences will want to know how Cap's Endgame adventures are retold through song.

Disney intends to release show dates and times, as well as Rogers: The Musical-themed merch, in the coming weeks. 

Rogers: The Musical officially debuts June 30.
