Guardians of the Galaxy construction - March 19 2021

At EPCOT'S Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind this week, construction teams have been busy at the front of the building closing in the last remaining spaces in the exterior.

The upper section of the V-shaped front is now covered in plywood, with just a small section remaining to be covered in waterproofing material.

Still no further progress to see on the main roof of the building, and it remains unclear if any solar panels will return as we saw on the original Universe of Energy.

Disney is yet to announce an opening date for the Guardians of the Galaxy rollercoaster, but it is thought it will debut in 2022.

I can’t believe I missed the opportunity to call it Storyfoam. I’m sure WDI is reading this and writing it down.

Disney unveils new, cutting edge Themed STORYfoam™! "It really helps us work our distinct brand of storytelling into every nook and cranny we can! Even the building materials get their own unique backstory! Just another step in helping us make everything: More Relevant™, More Timeless™, More Family™, and More Disney™." - Bob Chapek

Looks like styrofoam to me. ... Sorry, themed styrofoam. ... Sorry, themed storytelling styrofoam.

I think perhaps the sentiment was that this could be used in marketing as a new attraction that opens during Epcot's 40th, not that there will be large celebrations for the 40th itself

After the flop-to=be 50th Celebration and non existent celebrations for other EPCOT milestones I have no faith they will do anything more than a T-shirt or merch release for EPCOT's 40th....

Well then, we’re going to be waiting a while Not like Disney is super fast building attractions any way. We ain’t got nothing but time.

They have 18 months before Epcot’s 40th.

They have not.

Apparently filming for the Ride would be during Vol. 3 filming, and I have no idea if they’ve even started filming.

i dont read that as things that are not necessarily not done yet - simply that the end of guardians 3 means the end of a long run of projects... including what he has listed.. that have kept him busy 7 days a week for years.
