As some of the only Marvel characters that Disney can legally use at Walt Disney World, they are featured in EPCOT’s new coaster, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. The ride replaces Ellen’s Energy Adventure / Universe of Energy, utilizing the same façade for guests to enter the Wonders of Xandar pavilion.

“Guardians of the Galaxy — Awesome Mix Live!” was a stage show previously performed at EPCOT on and off from 2018 to 2020. The show featured Star-Lord and Gamora.

In Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure, guests can ride Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout! This ride is a reskin of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Star-Lord and Gamora also appear for the street dance party “Guardians of the Galaxy – Awesome Dance Off!”

The couple has also hosted a dance-off at Avengers Campus in Disneyland Paris and at Tomorrowland / Stark Expo in Hong Kong Disneyland.

Guardians of the Galaxy in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

The first “Guardians of the Galaxy” film was released in 2014 as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” was released in 2017 as a direct follow-up.

While the first two films were mostly unconnected from the rest of the MCU, the Guardians went on to appear as major characters in “Avengers: Infinity War,” meeting up with the Earth-based Avengers and going toe-to-toe with Thanos. The Guardians returned in the sequel, “Avengers: Endgame.”

They appeared in the beginning of “Thor: Love and Thunder” and then had their own “Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special” last year.

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” is part of Phase 5 of the MCU, following “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.” It will be the final film in the Guardians series, and the last appearance of at least some of the Guardians in the MCU.

All three “Guardians of the Galaxy” films and the holiday special are written and directed by James Gunn. Nicole Perlman co-wrote the screenplay for the first film.

The “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” soundtrack has been released ahead of the film. “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” will hit theaters on May 5 and tickets are available now.
