It’s true, the planet Xandar will open the first “other-world” pavilion at Epcot next year, and invite guests on an intergalactic chase through space and time.

You can see Imagineers Tom Fitzgerald (left) and Scot Drake (right) in the image above, standing in the “Wonders of Xandar” pavilion, which is still under construction. Specifically, they are standing in the Galaxarium, which, when completed, will feature a planetarium-type presentation where the Xandarians will show us their world, their people, and their advanced technologies.

Once it opens next year, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will offer a new kind of family-friendly adventure with a new type of roller coaster experience developed just for this attraction — a “storycoaster” that rotates 360 degrees so riders are always focused on the action. 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.

Stay tuned for more updates as construction continues on this out-of-this-world adventure!
