A few lucky Guests got to see one of the members of the Xandar crew up close and in person at EPCOT this week. u/Hawkholly shared a few photos of Dave Bautista at EPCOT:

Bautista is a former pro wrestler who plays Drax the Destroyer in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017), and the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (2023). Additionally, Bautista is expected to reprise his role as Drax in the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, slated for release on Disney+ later this year.

The Guest also noticed Bautista filming with two Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind Cast Members. The area was full of curious Guests, film professionals, and equipment:

Just got off the ride, and he walked out of the building next to the lightning lane entrance. There’s camera guys setting up near the big nova ship statue. Looks like they are maybe filming two cast members?

Edit again (Final???): My mom asked a cast member if they’re filming a commercial or promotional thing for the ride and she said she thinks so.
