As part of the ongoing transformation of EPCOT, Disney announced today that the anticipated new attraction Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will debut in 2022 during the 50th Anniversary celebration. That’s right, our friends from Xandar will open the first “other-world” showcase pavilion at EPCOT next year, inviting us on an intergalactic chase through space and time! This new attraction will be housed in the new EPCOT neighborhood called “World Discovery”. Starting on October 1st, EPCOT will begin recognizing these 3 new neighborhoods along with World Showcase- World Celebration, World Nature and World Discovery. These neighborhoods are set to be filled with new experiences rooted in authenticity and innovation that take guests to new destinations, where the real is made fantastic in a celebration of curiosity, discovery and the magic of possibility.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is a family-friendly adventure, featuring a totally new type of roller coaster experience – it’s a storycoaster that rotates 360 degrees so you’re always focused on all the action as you 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.
Imagineers Tom Fitzgerald (left) and Scot Drake (right) gave us a new look inside the Wonders of Xandar pavilion currently under construction. Here you see them 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.
We are excited to see all the things to come in the reimagined EPCOT!
