Washington [US], Nov. 26 (ANI): Glenn Close is set to reprise her role from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy series, directed by James John, in a ride experience built around Disney’s new rollercoaster.

According to EW, earlier this week in an official Disney Parks video preview of the upcoming ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind’ coaster, Close said, “I’m really excited to reprising my role as Nova Prime for a brand new attraction coming to Epcot next summer.” We can’t wait to see you all out there to help us save the galaxy. See you soon!” The Academy Award-nominated actress made her debut as Commander of Xandar (and commander of the Nova Corps) in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and the character takes on a new place in the “Other World” wing of Wonders of Xandar. In the newly renamed park is the Department of World Discovery.

Inside, guests will learn more about the Xandarians and their advanced technologies, which they bring to us here on Earth, or Terra, as they call our planet, according to the Disney Parks blog.
