Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has not only smashed box office records, its soundtrack, Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 (which we went over in detail here), hit Number 1 on the Billboard 200 chart last week. So, it goes without saying that people love Guardians and want more of it.
Now, Guardians is infiltrating one of the Disney theme parks when the “Awesome Mix Tape Dance Party” segment comes to “Villains Unleashed,” a separate ticketed event taking place at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for one night only — August 23, 2014.
At “Villains Unleashed,” classic Disney villains like Captain Hook and the Queen of Hearts as well as Star Wars baddies Darth Vader and Boba Fett will roam the park, perform on stage, dance with guests, and more. And word is, Star-Lord and his teammate Gamora might crash the party! Why would they show up at this villains event? Turns out, someone stole Star-Lord’s prized mixed tape and he’s coming to retrieve it.
“Awesome Mix Vol. 1,” a mix tape of retro-1970s gems given to Peter Quill by his mother, plays a key role in the story of “Guardians of the Galaxy.” Now a mysterious gang of villains has stolen that prized cassette, and Peter Quill – you may know him as the legendary Star-Lord – is on his way back to Earth on a mission to retrieve it.
The “Awesome Mix Tape Dance Party” will take place at the Disney’s Hollyood Studios at Disney World (in Orlando, FL) at Stage 5 in the Animation Courtyard, where there will be a DJ, dancing, and more surprises, perhaps the arrival of Star-Lord and Gamora.
