The popular summer music concert inspired by Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is returning to Epcot in 2019. Last year, Disney debuted a new summer concert show at the American Gardens Theatre at the very center of World Showcase in between popular Epcot festival dates. Despite its odd location in World Showcase, the show proved to be very popular with guests who can't wait to experience more from this Marvel film series at Epcot. Therefore, Disney World entertainment has announced that the concert series will once again return this year at the American Adventure Pavilion from June 14th to August 18th.
After saving their world from certain destruction, Peter Quill—also known as Star-Lord—brokered a deal with Nova Prime and the Xandarian government to bring an outreach program to his home planet. The purpose? To share Xandar’s rich heritage and culture with Earth’s people.
As luck would have it, Peter informed Xandar’s leaders that there’s already a place on Earth with a similar mission… a theme park called Epcot, where all of Earth’s cultures are celebrated. So, as part of their outreach, Xandar sent some of their most talented musicians to perform the human audiences’ best-loved hits.
The 20-minute show will have 5 performances a day in the summer period. Guests will get to enjoy the music played by a 7-piece alien band. Last year, the show featured hit songs from the film's album such as Blue Swede's 'Hooked On a Feeling' and Redbone's 'Come and Get Your Love'. Of course this year we can expect to see appearances by Star-Lord himself, Gamora and possibly even Baby Groot.
