Bob Chapek called the attraction the first Otherworld Showcase at Epcot, see what he did there with that pun??

Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind will feature a reverse launch in space and to be quite honest, the experience sounds out of this world.

This thrilling, family-friendly attraction will feature a never-before-seen storytelling coaster that rotates to focus on the action – wherever it may be. This is confirmation that the ride vehicles themselves will rotate.

We can’t wait to join Rocket Racoon, Groot, Drax, Star-Lord, Gamora and the rest of the team in this blast into space. The show building itself is huge and the old Ellen’s Energy Adventure area of the park is turning into one of the most anticipated attractions in the history of Walt Disney World.

Here’s also hoping that classic 70s and 80s music forms just a big a part of Comic Rewind as it does in the movies for Star-Lord and the gang. We’re almost certain that it will form at least part of the ride.
