So we are remeeting the Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), my Marvel favourites in what looks to be a fab sequel yay! With a great soundtrack, action and comedy. Emphasis on the comedy superhero writers.. apart from Paul Rudd and Ryan Reynolds who injected their sense of humour into their superheroes. This is the review of the second of two trailers for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) the first trailer concentrating on Star-Lord having confided in Drax of his burgeoning feelings for Gemora with the sensitive side to Drax in full display..

The second trailer starts with at last a proper introduction, to Baby Groot, or as I like to call him Wee Groot. Baby Groot being the supercute, wide-eyed remains of Big Groot who sadly died in the last movie. We also meet the rest of the gang again with Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) still harboring a bit of a crush on Gemora (Zoe Saldana). Whose name still sounds like a dodgy disease. Like the rest of the mostly male population who enjoyed her girl-on-girl fight with Nebula (Karen Gillan) – which sounds like the antidote – in the last film. But really shouldn’t complain as got Chris Pratt and the voice of Bradley Cooper. And Wee Groot. And Dave Bautista if you don’t easily fall for Pratt’s little boy lost in space look.

So the sequel’s trailer appears to have a more scary version of the alien from Arrival (2016). Rocket Raccoon is Raccoonsplaining (sort of, as has Coopers voice remember? Not. Really. Real. Acting. CGI. Raccoon.) to Wee Groot to press a button which will kill them all.  Immediately transported back to that scene in Father Ted. As with his father Groot has just the one line (in this trailer anyway). Then there’s some slow mo Chris Pratt for my sister and lots of action bits for my boys. We meet and are reintroduced to all the Guardians again individually, with action and comic moments and Wee Groot looking like to a force to be reckoned with (and probably the easiest money that Vin Diesel has ever made for a film). And then Star-Lord’s unresolved feelings for Gemora come out…

So I’m so looking forward to this movie, as it seems it’s going to be – dare I say it – a fantastic sequel. I’m super happy the casting is all the same, and the team intact and the bromance of Wee Groot and Rocket Raccoon still there. But with I’m hoping that Wee Groot doesn’t sprout up too quickly in this film and in the next of this franchise…
