During ‘The World’s Most Magical Celebration’ Press Conference, Walt Disney Imagineering announced that Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, will debut in 2022.
This pavilion does have a different spin…if you will, as our friends from Xandar are opening the first “other-world” showcase pavilion at EPCOT next year, inviting us on an intergalactic chase through space and time!
Imagineers Tom Fitzgerald (left) and Scot Drake (right) shared a new look inside the Wonders of Xandar pavilion currently under construction. Here they are in the Galaxarium, which when completed will feature a planetarium-type presentation where the Xandarians show us their world, their people, and their advanced technologies.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is a family-friendly adventure, featuring a totally new type of roller coaster experience that is being developed by Imagineering for this attraction – a storycoaster that rotates 360 degrees so guests are always focused on all the action as they help the Guardians save the galaxy.
Not only that but Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will also feature the first reverse launch on a coaster in Disney history, and is one of the longest enclosed coasters in the world.
It’s a massive experience that will match the scale and adventure of the Guardians of the Galaxy films.
As part of the ongoing transformation of EPCOT, Imagineering is infusing the park with more ways to dream, to be inspired, and to connect with our world – or other galaxies, in this case.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is going to be a big step in that direction, and I can’t wait to experience it.
