Chris Pratt and Kurt Russell are about to appear on the big screen as son and pop in the upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. They’re already showing their family dynamic in an Instagram post from Pratt today. In it, we see Star-Lord and Ego, the Living Planet trying to pose for a photo and adorably trying not to laugh. Earlier today, tickets for the film went on sale, along with the release of an extended clip, which you can see here.
A Walt Disney Pictures and Marvel Studios production, the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 cast includes the return of Pratt (Jurassic World, Parks and Recreation) as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana (Avatar, Star Trek) as Gamora, Dave Bautista (SPECTRE) as Drax, Vin Diesel (xXx, Furious 7) as the voice of Groot, Bradley Cooper (Joy, American Sniper) as the voice of Rocket, Michael Rooker (Slither, Jumper) as Yondu, Karen Gillan (Doctor Who, The Big Short) as Nebula, and Sean Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy, Gilmore Girls) as Kraglin. New cast members include Pom Klementieff (Oldboy), who plays Mantis, Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby, Everest), Chris Sullivan (The Knick, The Drop) and Russell (The Hateful Eight, Furious 7) as Ego, the Living Planet. Chris Pratt and Kurt Russell do their best not to crack up in the post, but it’s a lost cause.
Set to the backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.
