James Gunn’s Farewell To Retiring Disney Imagineer Behind Guardians Of The Galaxy Disneyland Ride Will Give You All The Feels

Walt Disney Imagineering is one of the most remarkable organizations in the world. They create the attractions for Disney theme parks all over the world and the work they do is almost always impressive, causing guests to continually wonder how they accomplish all these amazing rides and experiences.

But while the film bagged nearly $750 million at the worldwide box office, it didn’t set the world alight for critics, and was considered a disappointment among many fans. Fast-forward half a decade later, and the bad-guys-on-a-suicide-mission comic book project is getting a brand new lease on life in The Suicide Squad – a not-quite-sequel, not-quite-reboot from Guardians Of The Galaxy filmmaker James Gunn.
