At the end of Guardians of the Galaxy we were treated to a clip of a little baby Groot dancing to Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back”. It was easy to tell this was going to be something special. It could be because Groot made the ultimate sacrifice to save his friends and left us this little part of him, or if it was just really cute.
Fans fell in loved and wanted more, so Director James Gunn and Marvel delivered in the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy. Vol 2’ second Trailer. Rocket Racoon (Bradley Cooper) is teaching baby Groot (Vin Diesel) about a bomb and how now to kill everyone. Groot just doesn’t get it, but of course wants to carry in his father’s footsteps and save the day again. We are also treated to the small Groot riding on the back of Rocket, as well as taking down a human 10 times the size of him.
Thankfully, the rest of the things we now know to expect from a Guardians movie are there. Action, Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) interacting with aliens and Drax (Dave Bautista) doing his normal “not knowing how to deal with people” trait when the alien reveals that Peter is in love with Gamora (Zoe Saldana), and thankfully a repeat of one hell of a kick-ass soundtrack.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 comes out in theaters on May 5, 2017.
