James Gunn has confirmed on his Facebook that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be arriving in just under 3 years, setting the film firmly to release in 2020. He also confirmed that it will be titled Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 to close out the trilogy.
Marvel has already secured 2020 dates for as-yet unnamed films on May 1, August 7, and November 6, which likely puts Guardians in its now-infamous May slot to open the summer.
Disneyland’s tradition of crafting seasonal attractions will continue this year for Halloween, as California Adventure’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout will transform into Monsters After Dark this year for the autumn holiday from September 15th to October 31st.
The seasonal ride will act as a faux-sequel to the standard version, with the mission being to rescue Groot from the Collector and his various scary monsters. A new song, also titled “Monsters After Dark,” was composed for the ride by Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 film composer Tyler Bates.
