Disneyland Offers Peek At Guardians of The Galaxy Attraction

a

Months before its announced summer 2017 opening, Disneyland has released new images of proposed Guardians of the Galaxy attraction, which will replace the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney California Adventure.

Announced in July at Comic-Con International, three months after plans for the makeover first leaked, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout will transform the 1930s-style Hollywood Tower Hotel into The Collector’s fortress from Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy, while keeping its elevator-drop ride elements.

“It really has a lot different design elements that all come together and create what’s really a very striking building,” John Mauro, executive director of Walt Disney Imagineering, said a new video. “It’s going to look like a brand-new attraction.”

The model shown in the new images was designed by Walt Disney Imagineering as a “warehouse, fortress-like power plant” that’s intended to be both intimidating and regal. The completed structure is where The Collector displays his newest acquisitions, the Guardians of the Galaxy, who are trapped inside customized display cases. Visitors, aka the Collector’s VIP guests, will board a gantry lift that launches them into a chaotic adventure with Rocket Raccoon to rescue his teammates.

According to Disney, the attraction will be outfitted with new visual and audio effects, as well as music from the film’s hit soundtrack. The company also promises “a variety of randomizes ride experiences,” meaning guests won’t know which adventure they’ll get.

The planned replacement of the 12-year-old Tower of Terror hasn’t been without controversy. Following the July announcement of the makeover, a petition was launched on Change.org to urge Disney to save the attraction, drawing more than 35,000 supporters. Although the Tower of Terror at Disney California Adventure will close on Jan. 3, versions of the ride will continue to operate at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida, Tokyo DisneySea, and Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris.

Licensing agreements with Universal Orlando predating Disney’s $4 billion purchase of Marvel in 2009 prevent the company’s characters from appearing at Disney World in Florida. Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout will provide Marvel with its first permanent anchor at Disneyland.

Directed and co-written by James Gunn, 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy grossed more than $773 million worldwide. Its sequel arrives May 6, 2017.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan and Kurt Russell.

Guardians of The Galaxy – Mission: Breakout! Coming To Disney California Adventure Park

Today at San Diego Comic-Con, Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, announced to a packed house of fans that the Guardians of the Galaxy are coming to Disney California Adventure park.

Beginning in summer 2017, the outrageous and irreverent gang will appear in Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission Breakout! – a comically high-energy, rocking new adventure. Guests will be right in the mix with characters from the blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy films.

Deep inside his fortress-like collection, the mysterious Taneleer Tivan (AKA The Collector) is displaying his newest acquisitions. “Now he has imprisoned the Guardians of the Galaxy and they’re hanging in display cases over a giant abyss,” reveals Joe Rohde, portfolio creative director, Walt Disney Imagineering. “The captor doesn’t know it but Rocket Raccoon has escaped and is enlisting our aid—all the guests—to help the Guardians in a breakout scheme. And the rest is comical chaos; a very funny, very irreverent story and a really wonderful addition to Disney California Adventure.”

“It’s such a thrill to be working alongside a true visionary like Joe Rohde and the entire Walt Disney Imagineering team,” said Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada. “Like our stories and characters, projects led by Joe are the stuff of legend; so Marvel fans, rejoice! The universe couldn’t be in better hands! Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout! is going to be an out-of-this-world experience, and what has me even more excited are Joe’s ‘secret’ plans for the future. We’re just getting warmed up.”

The new attraction will anchor a broader universe of Super Heroes that will grow over time at Disney California Adventure park. This exciting new presence will transform the structure currently housing The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ into an epic new adventure, enhancing the breathtaking free fall sensation with all-new visual and audio effects to create a variety of ride experiences. (Fans of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror will want to experience the attraction from now until its final “drop day,” which will be celebrated in true Disney fashion in early January.) Guests will experience multiple random, unique ride profiles in which the rise and fall of the gantry lift will rock to the beat of music inspired by the film’s popular soundtrack.

Added Feige: “The incredibly talented Disney Imagineering team has found a way to harness the spirit which drove Guardians of the Galaxy’s success to create this immersive experience. With its debut timed to the release of the film’s sequel, we are eager to present the attraction to the millions who visit Disney California Adventure and place them in the center of the action as they join a mission alongside our audacious Guardians of the Galaxy team.”
