This thrilling new family-friendly coaster matches fun of the blockbuster “Guardians of the Galaxy” films.  Featuring Rocket, Groot, Drax, Gamora and Star-Lord, the attraction will be located in the park’s newly renamed World Discovery neighborhood, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will be the first “other-world” showcase pavilion at EPCOT.

Xandarians traveled from their homeworld in the Andromeda galaxy to Earth – or Terra, as they call it – to build this Wonders of Xandar pavilion, inviting EPCOT guests to learn more about their people and their advanced technologies. Until the Guardians arrive, anyway, and adventure ensues …
