‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2’ Trailer 2 Introduces Us To Star Lord’s Father

Guardians of The Galaxy is back after a major cliffhanger in the first movie. The action-packed trailer is set to the soundtrack of Awesome Mixtape Vol. 2 just like the sequel will be. The team traverses the outer reaches of the cosmos, battling monsters, arguing about weapons, waltzing, arguing about tape, falling love, arguing about red buttons that should not be pressed etc., while fighting to keep their newfound family together.

The original stars of the movie reprise their roles in the sequel with Chris Pratt as Star-Lord (who?!), Zoe Saldana and Karen Gilman as the augmented sisters Gamora and Nebula, Dave Bautista as Drax, Vin Diesel as Baby Groot, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Michael Rooker as Yondu, and Kurt Russell making an appearance as Peter Quill’s father, Ego. Another addition to the team is French actress Pom Klementieff who plays Mantis. Awesome Mixtape Vol. 2 is the creative genius of the film’s music director, Tyler Bates. The movie, directed by James Gunn is set to release on May 5, 2017.
