PHOTOS, VIDEO: Disney Gives First Official, Inside Look at Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind Ride Vehicles at Epcot

Last month at the D23 Expo 2019, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Bob Chapek unveiled new details around Epcot’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, a family-friendly “storytelling coaster” that will feature a groundbreaking ride system with vehicles that rotate 360 degrees and can even do a reverse launch.

Today, Disney has shared a closer look at this out-of-this-world ride system.

As you can see in the video above – provided by Walt Disney Imagineering – each individual cab in the attraction’s Omni-Coaster ride system will direct your eyes to the story happening around you. Instead of whizzing by the action, the system will fully immerse you in the attraction’s story from the minute you take off.

At Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind the adventure will start in the “Galaxarium,” a planetarium-like exhibition that explores the similarities and mysteries of the formation of Earth’s galaxy and Xandar. You’ll be invited to learn more about Xandar’s treasures – until the moment when the Guardians of the Galaxy arrive, and adventures across the cosmos ensue.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will open in time for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort in 2021.

So are the cars similar to Crush’s Coaster at Disney Studios Paris? With the spinning and going backwards?
