This weekend, Epcot added their piece of the Incredible Summer with the arrival of Star-Lord, Gamora, and Baby Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Live! in the America Gardens Theater.
After saving their world from certain destruction, Peter Quill—a.k.a. 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 first outreach, Xandar has sent some of their most talented performers to showcase their music!
This show is just pure fun, I love live entertainment and between the mix of a live band and a fun story this will be my stop many times throughout the next few months. For any fans of the Guardians films, you will see right away this film fits perfectly with Peter and Gamora taking jabs at each other just as we have seen them do many times before. Gamora even gets into the act leading to really the show-stealing performance of Pat Benatar, one of Peter’s favorite singers, “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” by the two backup singers.
If you can’t make it to Epcot before August 19th, 2018, the video below is a MUST WATCH. But if you do have a trip planned, make sure to visit the America Gardens Theater for one of the 5 showtimes at 1:30pm, 2:30pm, 5:30pm, 6:45pm and 8pm.
