The awesome new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has dropped, featuring all the original characters and a couple of welcome new ones.
The follow up to Marvel’s smash hit film Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) sees Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and his rag-tag group of guardian friends once again set out to save the galaxy from an as-yet unknown villain.
It looks all the things that made the first film a success will feature again in the sequel – stunning visuals, colourful characters, epic action, humour and a great soundtrack.
Marvel has completely nailed the tone of this film series, blending each of the above elements together perfectly, to make for some lighthearted entertainment that’s accessible to all audiences.
In this new trailer we also get to meet a couple of new characters; Mantis (Pom Klementieff) and Ego (Kurt Russell).
We don’t know much about Mantis’ character, however we know that Ego is Star-Lord’s father, which ties into the first movie’s theme of the character never knowing who his father was.
Casting Kurt Russell in that role was genius, as he’s still one of the most versatile and exciting actors today, after being around the game for more than 30 years.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 also stars Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan and Elizabeth Debicki, and is due to hit Australian cinemas on 25 April 2017.
Check out the new trailer below along with a cool new poster for the film.
