The galaxy has been hopelessly unguarded since we last saw Starlord (
The teaser captures the fun, off-beat vibe that made the first film such a hit -- it even calls on Hooked on a Feeling by Blue Swede, which fans will remember from the trailers for the first movie. There are no new characters yet, not Kurt Russell as Ego the Living Planet (yup that's his name, we can't wait to see what he looks like on film). We see our Guardians and existing friends/foes, hanging out, doing a little "something bad, something good, bit of both." We'll get to the other stuff later.
Oh, and Drax the Destroyer is a hugger now. Plus Baby Groot has outgrown his tiny flower pot, but hasn't outgrown being adorable. Let's hope he dances at some point.
Director James Gunn, who helmed the original, also gave fans a look at the poster for the movie, which features the Guardians, plus villains Yondu (Michael Rooker) and Nebula (Karen Gillan). You get 10 points if you can find Baby Groot. That is definitely a club we want to join.
