"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2" promises to be entertaining, thrilling and charming. Fans should not, however, expect the second installment to be a duplication of the first movie. In short, viewers should manage their expectations and just enjoy what version two offers.
Christ Pratt, who plays the Star Lord character in "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2", said the audience will be able to enjoy the movie if they keep an open mind. Fans will still be able to enjoy what they loved in the first movie, but they should not expect to see the same things.
"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" starts with the Guardians' struggle with their new role as universal saviors and how to get along with each other, according to Cinemablend. Executive producer Jonathan Schwarts said the movie will take off from each Guardians' decision to be part of the team or not.
Pratt as Star Lord will also be faced with the challenge of searching for his father played here by Kurt Russel. The "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" will introduce Russell as Ego the Living Planet. This character has not yet been revealed in the movie's trailers.
Fans can expect the original characters to make a comeback in the
"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" including Vin Diesel as Groot, according to BBC. Groot may have sacrificed himself in the previous movie to save Star Lord, but he is resurrected in the next movie. Other Guardians have doubts if he is indeed Groot or Groot's son.
Beginning this year, Star Lord and the other Guardians will have a very hectic schedule considering that the "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" will be officially shown in theaters in May 2017. They will also be part of the two-part "Avengers: Infinity War" movie scheduled to show in 2018 and 2019.
The "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" was one of the best movies in its genre in 2014 based on reviews and box office receipts. Marvel can expect another hit in its hands when the second movie in the series is shown this year.
