This attraction has been rumored as far back as last summer before Comic Con and had many people doubt it’s existence for multiple reasons, mainly that Disney wouldn’t dare put Guardians inside Epcot or that they couldn’t!  Well, lo and behold, the rumors were all true! Feast your eyes!

Replacing Ellen’s Universe of Energy in Future World will be a brand new E-Ticket attraction based on the hit Marvel film, Guardians of the Galaxy! The goal of the attraction is to stay true to the original vision of Epcot’s Future World which is a place to experience the excitement and adventure offered by space travel.

Not much is known yet, other than a rumored roller coaster style attraction. As it says in the announcement, it will be based “On the rockin’ and action-packed world of Guardians of the Galaxy.”

If you’re wondering how on Earth this is going to fit in with Epcot, well it just so happens Peter Quill visited Epcot as a kid! And apparently the Guardians just might need to return Epcot for a few things.
