|Groot, put your seatbelt on, Guardians 2 is about to land in the cinema!
It has been 3 year (2014) since Marvel delivered Guardians on the Galaxy to us…and we have been waiting for the sequel ever since.
The original was a runaway success and showed that you don’t need the firepower of Iron Man or the strength of Hulk to deliver a comic masterpiece.
After 3 sleepless years of waiting Marvel will deliver the sequel to the UK on April 28, 2017 (which happens to be a full week before the US).
WHO IS BACK FOR ROUND 2?
Guardians Vol 2 is set two months after the first instalment and sees Chris Pratt back as Star-Lord (Peter Quill), Zoe Saldana return as Gamora, Vin Diesel as the voice of Baby Groot, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, plus who could forget Rocket voiced by Bradley Cooper.
Other characters back for round 2 include Karen Gillian as Nebula and Michael Rooker as Yondu.
WHAT ABOUT NEW CHARACTERS?
Well for starters how about Kurt Russell as “Ego the Living Planet”, and Sylvester Stallone!?!
Big star name dropping aside we have Pom Klementieff joining the crew as the psychic called Mantis, and Tommy Flanagan (from Sons of Anarchy) joining the cast.
WHAT ABOUT THE MUSIC?
Firstly it is going to take some musical power tracks to compete with the soundtrack to Volume 1, which topped the downloads chart!
Rather than say anything about it…..here is the soundtrack for you to admire:
ELO – ‘Mr. Blue Sky’
Sweet – ‘Fox on the Run’
Aliotta Haynes Jeremiah – ‘Lake Shore Drive’
Fleetwood Mac – ‘The Chain’

Cheap Trick – ‘Surrender’
Yusuf / Cat Stevens – ‘Father and Son’
Parliament – ‘Flashlight’
The Sneepers featuring David Hasselhoff – ‘Guardians Inferno’
WHAT’S THE PLOT?
We don’t know a lot about the plot from the trailer…but what we do know is:
– Peter Quill will be exploring his relationship with his father.
– Nebula will be back with a vengeance….and maybe some emotion.
– Groot will return as Baby Groot.
