Disney Parks have been quite busy promoting the upcoming Cosmic Rewind ride, which will let people join the Guardians of the Galaxy on a new quest at Walt Disney World Resort’s EPCOT. Marvel took to its official website to announce that they will be facing off against a Celestial in the storyline. It’s not just anyone, as it’ll be Eson the one that was first showcased by the Collector in the first Guardians of the Galaxy film. He’s gone through quite the redesign which is more in line with what we saw in Eternals, as he towers over our planet in the first look at his new design.
Eson has been watching Earth for eons and is planning “to right a wrong in a big way,” which leads to Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot having to save the day. They are naturally not going to give away any details, but it’ll be interesting to see what that might be when the ride officially opens to the public on May 27th.
Perhaps they also reveal how the Celestial went through quite the change and maybe even tease why he was wielding the Power Stone during that brief cutscene in the film. We’ll see if this design might also potentially make an appearance in the MCU at some point, as these rides aren’t canon to the usual story like the Damage Control VR event some years ago. Still, it’s great to see them use the wider MCU and add a special flair to these rides, especially for those that want to have an immersive experience.
