The stars and director of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 talk about the long awaited sequel to the 2014 movie. The much loved ragtag crew consisting of Peter Quill (Star-Lord), Rocket, Groot, Gamora and Drax have just defeated Ronan and stopped the evil villain from using a powerful orb to destroy Xandar, the capital of the Nova Empire. With their criminal records cleared the crew fly off in Quill's spaceship the Milano after he learns that he's only part human and his father is mystery he's still yet to uncover. Equipped with a new mix tape from his mother, the gang are ready to set off on a new adventure.
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 begins with the Guardians being asked by Ayesha, the leader of the Sovereign race, to retrieve a set of incredibly powerful batteries from the grasps of a monster. In return for their work, the crew will be given Gamora's sister, Nebula, who was captured by the Sovereigns when she tried to steal the batteries for herself. Though their mission is successful, the ever naughty Rocket decided to keep a couple of the batteries for himself landing the gang in serious trouble and being chased by Ayesha's army. Luckily for the crew of the Milano, they are saved by Quill's father, Ego, who reveals to Peter that he must've inherited some of his father's immense powers.
Whilst Ego and Peter bond, Rocket and Baby Groot find themselves getting captured and form an unlikely alliance with a familiar face. However, loyalties might not be as clear cut as the crew might've thought and there is imminent danger afoot from all corners of the Galaxy.

The superhero actor can't convince his son to get on board with his space-traveling character.
Directed and written by James Gunn, the brand new Marvel Cinematic Universe release 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' has hit cinemas in the UK and received rave reviews from critics who have already been lucky enough to see the flick.
Chris Pratt returns as Star-Lord in 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'
Though it's hugely popular with moviegoers and comic book fans, there's one particular young man who we would have thought would love the movies - and 'Guardians of the Galaxy' - more than the rest. That'd be Chris Pratt's son, Jack.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 is out this week
Following up a massive hit like 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy is a daunting task. And while writer-director James Gunn had the main responsibility to make the sequel bigger and better, the returning cast members were aware of the stakes.
Chris Pratt in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2
Leading man Chris Pratt says that there was a big difference between making the first movie and this one. "Yeah, it's a different type of pressure that we're under now," he says. "Before, the pressure was that no one knows you, so what's it going to be like to be the first Marvel movie that fails? I can't tell you how many times I answered that question. It was like, 'Oh God, this is not looking good.' So now that pressure is off, because it's like, hey, we've got a built-in audience! People really liked it. But I think the pressure we're feeling now is how do we do the same thing in terms of wowing an audience, getting people to come in and have their expectations defied. The pressure was on now to do the same thing, which is surprise you and do something different."

It was never going to be easy to match the impact of 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy, which jolted the Marvel franchise to life with its fresh comedy and freewheeling adventure. This sequel is still a lot of fun, but it's also far more controlled, a conventional, plot-based step of the Marvel universe. And all of the characters are angry about everything and everyone. Thankfully, there's also an emotionality that sneaks into the final act.
Now working as a team, the bickering Guardians just manage to complete their latest mission when Rocket (Bradley Cooper) makes an enemy of a tenacious high priestess (Elizabeth Debicki). Her fleet chases them into an encounter with Ego (Kurt Russell), a god-like being who claims to be the father of Guardian leader Peter (Chris Pratt). So Peter takes Gamora and Drax (Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista) to check out Ego's planet, while Rocket and Baby Groot (Vin Diesel) fend off both the priestess and Peter's old mentor Yondu (Michael Rooker), who arrives with a large posse. And then there's Gamora's perpetually furious sister Nebula (Karen Gillan), who's on the rampage, determined to get revenge against everyone who has slighted her.
There's an underlying rage that drives everyone's actions, and the constant screaming matches become exhausting as the film progresses. The worst offender is Rocket, who expresses his perpetual aggravation in a stream of tetchy tirades. Thankfully, the dialogue is sharply written, with wicked insults to keep the audience smirking along. And there's also a nice sense that all of this fury is masking a deeper affection these misfits have for each other, which boils over in some remarkably strong dramatic scenes. Pratt and Russell are both terrific, seizing every chance to play with the comedic and dramatic notes. There are nice moments for Rooker, Saldana and Gillan, plus some witty cameos. And while Baby Groot is almost painfully adorable, it's Bautista's hilariously open-hearted Drax who steals the show.

For now at least...
While 'Guardians of the Galaxy' fans are eagerly anticipating some kind of romantic moment to happen between Peter Quill and Gamora, Zoe Saldana has different ideas about their relationship. According to her, love is the last thing on the cards for her feisty character.

Saving the world brought the Guardians together as friends, as we are about to see in 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2', but it was clear that Chris Pratt's character Peter Quill felt something different for one of his newfound teammates. However, love isn't something that Gamora is all too familiar with; she's already having enough trouble trying to find love for herself after her past wrongdoings.

Chris Pratt loved having Kurt Russell as his on-screen dad so much he asked him to take it on as a permanent role.
Chris Pratt has confessed that getting to work with his hero Kurt Russell on the set of 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' was one of his favourite experiences on a movie set ever. He'll be changing his name to Chris Russell any day now.

Obviously the 37-year-old gets to work with a lot of awesome actors on the Marvel movie franchise, but the introduction of Kurt Russell as Chris' character Peter Quill's long-lost alien father Ego in the forthcoming sequel made it all just that little bit more awesome.

Pratt had claimed that blue collar America was under-represented in Hollywood movies - but nothing could be further from the truth.
Hollywood hunk Chris Pratt has backtracked on remarks he made about “blue-collar” stories being unrepresented in the American film industry, admitting that it was a “pretty stupid thing to say”.
The 37 year old actor was making comments about the nature of Hollywood and the kinds of stories being portrayed on the silver screen, and was pulled up on comments he made about working class America being under-represented.
“I don’t see personal stories that necessarily resonate with me, because they’re not my stories,” the actor told Men’s Fitness last week while promoting his new movie, Marvel’s next blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' actor thanked his family during his acceptance speech.
When it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one of the most popular actors is without question Chris Pratt, who plays the formidable Star-Lord in the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' series, penned and directed by James Gunn. Now the man himself has landed a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which he accepted with an official ceremony on Friday, April 21.

Introduced by his wife Anna Faris, with whom he has a 4-year-old son, Jack, Faris gave what she called a "thank-you speech" because she gets "to spend every day with this wonderful man." When it came Pratt's time to take to the podium, he was visibly emotional and overwhelmed with the event.

The Guardians of the Galaxy have returned for another interplanetary adventure, having decided to stick together after forming an unbreakable bond on their last journey. Peter Quill (aka Star-Lord), Drax the Destroyer, Rocket, Gamora and Groot (well... Baby Groot) are back but this time they are not alone. They are joined by Gamora's cynical and formerly evil sister Nebula, initially as a prisoner but then as a fully-fledged member of the team. Ravagers leader Yondu Udonta also join them, though not without trying to kill them first, and a new face in the form of Mantis is also among the new arrivals. Mantis happens to be the adoptive daughter of Ego - a mysterious being who Peter meets on his latest quest, and discovers that he is in fact his father. The team come against plenty of adversaries on their new adventures, but nothing compares to this confusing and unexpected meeting.
Can you guess who our favourite 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' character is?
With 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' well on the way, we order the Guardians of the original movie from best to nearly best before their newest members join the ranks. Of course, Groot has been replaced by Baby Groot, and Yondu Udonta and Nebula are apparently about to join this force for good - though they haven't given us much reason to like them yet. Also, Mantis is another forthcoming addition, who we expect will steal our hearts very soon.
'Guardians of the Galaxy' has some of Marvel's best characters
1. Groot - He's a tree of little words, but he also sacrificed himself to save his friends, most of which he had only known a short time. Also, he becomes Baby Groot after that sacrifice - and he is the character that we're all excited to meet in the forthcoming 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'. Voiced by Vin Diesel, he is the most innocent and the most loving of all the Guardians.
