There’s a new ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ ride coming to EPCOT in Walt Disney World

Sure, you can take a trip around the world with Soarin, or test drive a car on Test Track. For the first time ever, a Marvel-themed rollercoaster is coming to EPCOT in the Walt Disney World. This attraction, titled Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, features everyone’s favorite heroes as they save the universe with the help of those on the ride.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is not set to open until 2021. Until then, fans just have to catch a glimpse of the ride from the creators behind it. That includes James Gunn, one of the creators of the original Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

James Gunn commented on the upcoming attraction, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind’ 

One of the people behind Guardians of the Galaxy actually had a hand in creating the rides based on these characters. In James Gunn’s Instagram story, according to Inside the Magic, one fan asked Gunn, “What will Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind look like at Disney World?” Gunn replied with, “Utterly mind-blowing. I mean it. You guys are going to freak out. It’s incredible.”

Another fan asked Gunn about the ride currently in Disneyland, California. They wrote, “Did you work on Mission Breakout at all? If so, how much were you involved? Do you like the ride?”

“Yes. I consulted on it and directed the actors. Currently working on the ride opening in Orlando,” Gunn answered. Presumably, more information regarding this ride will be announced in the coming months. 

Reportedly, there’s another ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ movie in the works

Fans haven’t seen the last of Peter Quill and the rest of the Guardians. With Gamora wandering off on her own, the rest of the gang will presumably go on an adventure to bring her back home.

In fact, Marvel confirmed that a third movie will be released in the coming years. It’ll still be a few months before fans can see this upcoming film, and, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the premiere date has presumably been pushed back a little.

Fans also wait for sequels to movies like Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Spider-Man. In the meantime, though, fans can watch the original Guardians of the Galaxy on Disney’s streaming platform, Disney+.

Other Marvel movies featuring these characters, including Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame are also available with a subscription. To learn more about Disney+ and to subscribe, visit their website
