As if the promise of more than 50 baddies appearing in one event isn’t reason enough to attend next week’s Villains Unleashed event at Walt Disney World, Disney and Marvel are now now giving two more: Star-Lord and Gamora.
The pair from “Guardians of the Galaxy” will be occasionally appearing throughout the evening as part of an Awesome Mix Tape Dance Party to be held in Stage 5 in the Animation Courtyard during the event.
Calling it the “hottest spot this side of Knowhere” the party will feature a DJ and surprise moments with Star-Lord and Gamora. It is not clear if they’ll be hanging around to mingle with partygoers or simply stopping by to recover Peter Quill’s important cassette tape of ’70s songs, but they will be there in some form – a first for Marvel characters in the Florida parks.
Disney has also announced that Hiro and Baymax characters from “Big Hero 6” will be meeting with guests in the same park later this year.
Meanwhile at Disneyland in California, guests can still meet Thor and Captain America inside Innoventions.
“Villains Unleashed” is a separately ticketed special event at Disney’s Hollywood Studios with a cost of $67 plus tax ($62 plus tax for children 3-9).
No word whether baby dancing Groot will be there too:
