Disney Shares Look of Nighttime Lighting Package for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind Exterior

With just about a month until it officially opens, the nighttime lighting package for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind has been revealed. On social media today both Disney Parks and Imagineer Zach Riddley gave a look at what guests will be seeing in EPCOT at night at the Wonders of Xandar Pavilion.

In a post on Instagram, Imagineer Zach Riddley shared photos and said:

Today (I mean, tonight!) we’re excited to debut our exterior lighting design for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind!

Our team has been working hard to develop and implement a look that allows the building to show off its unique character and fit into the emerging aesthetic of our reimagined EPCOT and World Discovery neighborhood. We want to ensure that the people of Xandar have a suitable beacon for the message of peace and cooperation that they have brought to our park.

The lighting design reinforces the layering of space and scale that we focused on as we developed our exterior architecture, finishes and color palette. We had such an amazing starting point with the pre-existing Universe of Energy building and looked for every opportunity to preserve and extend the many strong points of that facade.

Our lighting is sculptural and chiseled, designed to highlight the intricate layering of masses and forms that define the building—not to mention its very imposing scale! It supports the Nova Corps Starblaster in the front courtyard as the iconic centerpiece of the design … and its programming is intended to allow the Xandarians to play along in the vibrant skyline of our new vision for EPCOT.

We hope you enjoy the new look!

The Disney Parks Instagram also shared this look at the pavilion:

Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will be opening to the public on May 27, 2022. This will bring the Guardians of the Galaxy into EPCOT and Walt Disney World Resort. It is one more step forward in the transformation that EPCOT is currently undergoing.
