They’re back. Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Groot, and even Rocket have returned to bring moviegoers a second helping of rock ‘n’ roll science fiction fantasy with the brilliantly titled, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Due May 5th, 2017, the sequel to Marvel and Disney’s 2014 blockbuster juggernaut finds our Guardians searching the cosmos for Star-Lord’s father all while trying to keep their shit together as a newfound family.
The film returns Chris Pratt, (Star-Lord/Peter Quill), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Dave Bautista (Drax), Bradley Cooper (Rocket), and Vin Diesel (Groot) alongside Kurt Russell (Star-Lord’s father, Ego the Living Planet), Michael Rooker (Yondu), Karen Gillan (Neblua), and Pom Klementieff (Mantis).
Following the unveiling of the film’s poster, Marvel has now let loose the first teaser trailer. Once again delightfully utilizing Blue Swede’s “Hooked on a Feeling”, the preview hints at a simmering romance between Quill and Gamora, and also gives us our first tiny glimpse of Baby Groot in action. Watch it above.
Update: According to director James Gunn, today’s preview is a “special sneak peak” and not the first trailer, which is “coming soon.”
