First reported by WDWMagic, this morning there were height test balloons spotted at Epcot near the Universe of Energy attraction. Over the past month or so, rumors have been very strong of the potential of the popular Guardians of the Galaxy franchise to be making it's way to Future World at Epcot. This will replace Universe of Energy and the attraction will be rebuilt, not an overlay, or retheming, as with Frozen Ever After. Typically, these balloons are used to see how upcoming construction/structures will look from other areas at the height of the future building.
As more and more IP's are added to Epcot, it is becoming pretty clear that the park is going to undergo some changes, and rumors point to Future World getting the attention. As of now, a Guardians of the Galaxy addition looks very likely, but we do not know what that will entail. Stay with us for updates as this story develops.
Guardians of the Galaxy was a smash-hit film released in 2014 by Marvel Studios and is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2 arrives in theaters on May 5th, 2017, and they are rumored to appear in 2018/2019's Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 & 2.
