Imagineer Zach Riddley has kept fans up to date on the progress through his Instagram account. Here is the latest information that he has shared:

A new year brings continued progress at EPCOT. Today I’m excited to share our team has started the installation of the Nova Corps Starblaster ship that will mark the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind entrance at EPCOT. Over the coming weeks we’ll be assembling the 51-foot-tall ship, adding finishing details and tying in the landing pad area that surrounds the ship. Swipe for a teaser photo and concept art of the cockpit that’ll be going in soon!

Once complete, this ship will be the signature icon of the Wonders of Xandar pavilion and immediately establish the Xandarian storyline guests will discover inside this new attraction. Plus, the bold blue and gold colors will make this a stunning new addition to World Discovery. We can’t wait to share more details as we bring the first-ever, full-size Nova Corps ship to life here at EPCOT (and you can join along and watch from the monorail too!).

Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is going to be a family friendly coaster. We don’t yet know what the height requirement will be, but we expect that it will be similar to Slinky dog Dash or Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.

Cosmic Rewind will feature the first reverse launch at Walt Disney World or any Disney Park. Disney describes it as an ‘omnicoaster’. It will use screens to keep you in the middle of the action.

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH, and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married, and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010, we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the Parks. Under the name Paula Brown, I penned the novels 'Dream Wanderers' and 'The Coffee Cruiser'. I also am a co-author of 'Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide'. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida.
