Marvel has just revealed that a new celestial character named Eson will be the antagonist/villain coming to the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind coaster in the Wonders of Xandar pavilion at EPCOT.
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!
We’ve learned that Eson is no stranger to the Guardians but they have never crossed paths…until now.
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 opens to guests at EPCOT on May 27, 2022. Were you lucky enough to get registered for one of the previews?
