We are just a little over a month away from the release of Guardians of the Galaxy, and as the highly anticipated film draws closer, Disney and Marvel have teamed up once again to give fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe a closer look at the film.
But unlike the Iron Man Tech Exhibit and the Captain America Exhibit in Disneyland or the Avenger’s S.T.A.T.I.O.N Exhibit in New York, the new Guardians of the Galaxy promo is more of a sneak peek of the film itself. Hit the jump to see what Guardians of the Galaxy will be replacing.
Starting July 4, the Guardians of the Galaxy sneak peek at Disneyland in Anaheim will replace the Captain EO short film shown at Tomorrowland for a short period of time. Captain EO’s return will be announced at a later date.
For those of you visiting Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, you’ll be able to experience the cosmic adventure of “Guardians of the Galaxy” at the ABC Sound Studio at Disney’s Hollywood Studios presented in spectacular RealD 3D, a new dimension of entertainment.
Directed by James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, and Benicio Del Toro with the voice talents of Vin Diesel and Dave Bautista. The film opens in theaters on August 1.
From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
