More than ever, the movies don’t feel particularly connected, instead letting the movies and Disney+ shows build out the world of Marvel even further. From the Eternals and Shang-Chi to Moon Knight and Hawkeye, the MCU is spread out in a number of directions right now, which is where Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmis Rewind comes in.

The new storytelling rollercoaster, which opens May 27 at Walt Disney World’s Epcot, is a major step forward for thrill rides at Disney’s theme parks.
