New details are coming out regarding the story for Epcot’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind! We now know who the Marvel villain will be for the roller coaster attraction.

Visitors hoping to explore and learn a little bit about the first-ever other-worldly pavilion in the area will get more than they expected when Eson, a Celestial that has been watching Earth for eons, makes a startling appearance.

The Celestial is looking “to right a wrong in a big way,” and the Guardians of the Galaxy — Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot — step in to help save the day. But, they can’t do it alone and need our help to stop him from completing his grand plan!

But what can park guests do for the cosmic heroes? We’ll have to find out when the ride opens to park guests!

While Eson might be a stranger to visitors at the Wonders of Xandar, he’s no stranger to the Guardians. While the Celestial and the ragtag troop have never crossed paths before, Eson was once in possession of the Power Stone, one of the six Infinity Stones, as the group learned in the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Now, he’s clearly set his sights on Earth, which can hopefully be thwarted before full destruction!

Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is a brand new, family-thrill coaster developed by Disney Imagineers just for this attraction. It’s a “story coaster” that will amaze guests as it rotates 360 degrees throughout the attraction so the focus is always on the action, and additionally will feature a reverse launch on a coaster, never before seen in Disney Parks. It is also one of the longest enclosed coasters in the world!
