James Gunn Says Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Will Be Different

James Gunn has been promising new and exciting changes ahead for Guardians of the Galaxy. He has been calling the sequel an overall more emotional movie. Considering they dropped hints to Starlord's father in the previous title, which plays a huge part in the comics, it is likely it will be about this storyline. 

Chris Pratt (Peter Quill/Starlord) said that James Gunn’s idea for the sequel actually brought tears to the actor’s eyes. Of course he wasn’t able to divulge any further details, but it sounds like it will be an amazing story.


I will say that his pitch and his idea legitimately put tears in my eyes. It is so good, it’s so good. And I cannot wait to get started on it and I cannot wait for people to see what he’s going to pull off with the second movie. It’s so, so big and so good.
— Chris Pratt
Well I think I’ve said so much already... I think it’s a more emotional movie. It’s both a bigger movie and a smaller movie because we focus more intensely on some of the characters. We learn a lot about fathers in the second movie and I think we focus a lot on that.
— James Gunn

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is set to release on May 5, 2017. 

Phew. After 48 days straight without a day off, the the first draft of #GotG2 is done. I'm sorry to all my friends and family who I have ignored.
