We are a little over a month away from EPCOT’s newest MCU-themed attraction Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. Riders will get to take on an adventure with the Guardians, but today, it was revealed that they will be taking on a new threat, Eson the celestial.
Visitors hoping to explore and learn a little bit about the first-ever other-worldly pavilion in the area will get more than they expected when Eson, a Celestial that has been watching Earth for eons, makes a startling appearance, Marvel.com shared. The Celestial is looking “to right a wrong in a big way,” and the Guardians of the Galaxy — Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot — step in to help save the day. But, they can’t do it alone and need our help to stop him from completing his grand plan.

Looking for a place to establish a peaceful connection to Earth, and at the suggestion of nostalgic Epcot fan Peter Quill, the planet Xandar and its Nova Corps have decided to establish Epcot’s first “Other-World Showcase” Pavilion. For their presentation, they have decided to focus on deep space travel, with an elaborate planetarium called the “Galaxarium” serving as a way to give guests a look at the formation of the universe as well as offering a hyperjump visit to Xandar. However, our field trip to Xandar is interrupted by the Guardians and chaos ensues as they and the guests are sent back in time to witness the Big Bang.
The attraction brings back the stars from the hit Marvel Studios franchise including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff, and Glenn Close.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind opens May 27th at EPCOT at the Walt Disney World Resort.
