One thing to consider is the footage being shot with the actors. With the pandemic, Hollywood was shut down, and understandably so. That, coupled with budgets being upended, massive losses from closed parks, movie theatres, etc., created a perfect storm. Now, the added timing to build buzz and have appropriate ROI for that buzz is a factor as well. In a way, everyone really lost 18 months of their lives.

Also, for what it’s worth, spreading cost over fiscal periods is even more of a practice today than in the 80s. There’s also the consideration of building in an existing park, which is making money, vs a new park that is only spending.

At least filming the ride scenes shouldn’t inhibit the budget too much. They shot Mission Breakout during Vol 2. Cosmic Rewind scenes are getting filmed this fall during production of the Holiday special and Vol. 3.

I heard from a source that this is shifting slightly. It will now be Guardians of the Galaxy featuring the music of Olivia Rodrigo.

😂
“Hey guys. It’s me, Peter Quill from Marvel Studios Guardians of the Galaxy. I’m very sorry about the absence of my awesome mix. But we have Olivia Rodrigo’s all new album, “Sour” instead. It’s a lot better and you can buy it in stores now!”

*rollercoaster launches*
*the album plays idk I’ve never listened to it*

Who said anything about a joke?

I thought this was happening... I've been listening to Livy's 3 song's on repeat for the last 30 minutes.
Maybe it will happen, what do I know! At this point, I wouldn't put anything past Chapek.

Also, no offense to her personally, but I just can't be bothered... not my style.

Not my style either... personally I turned her off during SNL and I find her songs forgetful.
I honestly can't remember the girl's name...

Which would be sad if she gets something in WDW and people can't remember her name or a song... Yet people love Dreamfinder and Figment and WDI ignore and put off updating that attraction. Hmm

I hadn't even heard of her until a day or so ago.

Now, Dreamfinder and Figment is a whole other issue...

Question for anyone who knows: is the UoE building going to have anything other than the queue/first part of the ride? I know at first they had considered some sort of show there and that's off the table. But will there be anything like a post-ride gift shop or a M&G space, etc?

I think that it’s just the queue and first part. (And I think a preshow. There was concept art of Rocket and Groot with the Milano that looked like a preshow). Wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a gift shop though. Gotta sell those Groot plushies
