Guardians of the Galaxy is one of our favourite blockbusters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and now Disney and Marvel have premiered the first teaser for the highly-anticipated sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, which blasts into theaters on May 5, 2017.
Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista and Michael Rooker return to star alongside the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel as Rocket and Groot, respectively.
Here’s the synopsis:
Following their initial defeat of Ronan and encounter with an Infinity Stone, the Guardians are struggling to keep their new found family together, while half-human/half-alien adventurer Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) searches for his real father.
Although he doesn’t make an appearance in the teaser, Hollywood legend Kurt Russell is set to take on the role of Peter Quill’s father, Ego the Living Planet, and will no doubt have a big role to play in the film. Newcomer Pom Klementieff will also appear as Mantis, a follower of Ego who will have a central role to play in the Guardians.
Elizabeth Debicki, Tommy Flanagan, Nathan Fillion, and Sylvester Stallone are also set to appear in the film.
This sneak peek at the superhero sequel brings back Blue Swede’s distinctive song “Hooked on a Feeling,” which was part of the original film’s marketing campaign. Give the video a look to relive that magical feeling.
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is set to release in New Zealand cinemas 5 May, 2017.
