New ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Trailer Crashes into Our Happy Place

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is easily one of the most anticipated movies of 2017. It was number two on Fandango’s poll, behind only Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And part of the reason for that, aside from the fact that the first movie is so loved, is because Disney and Marvel haven’t been shy with the marketing materials.

They’ve been hyping Star-Lord and his ragtag team’s new adventure for quite a while now, showing off set pics, behind-the-scenes videos, posters, teaser trailers and TV spots. But even with everything we’ve seen so far, they haven’t released an actual, full trailer for the film.

Until now, when we finally get to see a hint of the story, i.e. why the guardians need to save the galaxy again. We see more moments of Baby Groot acting like a baby, more moments shared between Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Gamora (Zoe Saldana), more wisecracks by Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper) and, yes, we also finally get the see a character reveal that we’ve been eagerly awaiting, right at the end.


Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters on May 5, 2017.
