Today, Walt Disney Imagineering released a more detailed look at the new Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! attraction set to open in the Summer of 2017 at Disney’s California Adventure park. In the video below, John Mauro, the Executive Producer of Walt Disney Imagineering, shows a more detailed look at the model and design tool the Imagineers are using to showcase how the comic book type colors and the design elements are going to come together.
The attraction, which was announced in July 2016 at the San Diego Comic-Con by Kevin Feige, the President of Marvel Studios, and is the current location of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™, will immerse guests into the world of the Guardians of the Galaxy; it truly is the first of a whole new universe that will develop at Disney’s California Adventure.
So say goodbye to the Twilight Zone and say hello to the Collector’s Fortress where he keeps his rare possessions from all around the universe. No longer will guests walk into a hotel lobby covered in dust and spiderwebs. Now, guests will step into a museum where the objects are in display cases and the Guardians of the Galaxy are imprisoned. Our task? To help Rocket break the Guardians out of captivity.
The experience will still provide multiple ride profiles, but this time there will also be multiple music scores as Joe Rohde, the Portfolio Creative Executive for Walt Disney Imagineering, states in the “Original Release Video” above. By using rock music inspired by the film soundtrack, guests are sure to enjoy the free fall of their lives as they embark on this chaotic and hilarious adventure.
Though The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ isn’t scheduled to close until early 2017, it is clear the transformation has already begun.
What concept do you like better: The Twilight Zone or a galaxy unlike any other, filled with laughter and chaos?
