With the official launch of the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attraction taking place tomorrow, it is almost time for Disney Parks fans and intergalactic outlaws alike to gear up!
The grand opening of this new family-thrill coaster attraction at EPCOT also heralds the debut of the Treasures of Xandar merchandise location, which will be dedicated to all things Guardians. Treasures of Xandar will unveil several new product lines honoring the Guardians and their many intergalactic adventures. Items from the “Guardians of the Galaxy” collections, including a limited release of opening-day merchandise, will be available at Creations Shop beginning May 27.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Heroes of Xandar Collection
What if the Guardians were actually rock stars? What kind of music would their hypothetical band play? And more importantly, would they perform live at any event venues on Earth? (Because I would definitely buy a ticket!) Inspired by the vintage concert merchandise of the 1980s, the Guardians of the Galaxy: Heroes of Xandar Collection imagines the gear and memorabilia fans would collect during the Guardians’ fictional intergalactic tour.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Through the Eyes of Quill Collection
Before he became known across the galaxies as Star-Lord, Peter Quill was an average American kid growing up in the 1980s. Peter even visited EPCOT as a child, snapping a photo in front of Spaceship Earth. The Guardians of the Galaxy: Through the Eyes of Quill Collection is reminiscent of Peter’s younger years on Earth and his first trip to Walt Disney World, featuring the retro graphics and bold colors that were popular in the 1980s.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind – Honorary Guardians Collection
Ever dreamed about being an intergalactic outlaw? Here is your chance! After taking part in a thrilling chase across time and space on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, you will earn the highly sought-after title of Honorary Guardian. The Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind – Honorary Guardians Collection, which features the Honorary Guardian emblem and navy/gold colors, is the perfect way to celebrate your achievement in style.
Groot Through the Years Collection
Fans of the Guardians of the Galaxy movie franchise will remember the many life stages of Groot. The new Groot Through the Years Collection illustrates the sentient tree-like creature’s evolution from baby to adolescent to adult through a range of toys, home décor and children’s apparel. Say it with me: “I am Groot!”
