Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 is one of the most anticipated movies of the year, having a huge pressure on its shoulders to perform better than the previous film. The second feature has been said to be far different from the first film, with a focus on the members of the team rather than saving the universe once more like they did in the first one. Director James Gunn discussed what every member will be facing in his interview with Cinemablend. Check out what he had to say:
That’s the first thing people say when they see the movie. The first movie was about Peter Quill, and the second movie has every single character have a complete arc, a complete story. They each learn something. It’s a story about Peter Quill, with his father, but also his abusive step-father, Yondu.
Gamora And Nebula:
It’s about Nebula’s relationship with her sister, Gamora, and how that’s not all that we saw in the first movie. It’s a lot deeper and more complicated than that. We thought in the first movie that Gamora was the good guy, and Nebula’s the bad guy, but that really isn’t the whole story.
Rocket The Raccoon:
I think it’s a story about this poor little Rocket, who is in search of a father and in search of a somebody to give a shit, who cannot find it – and maybe does a little bit with Michael Rooker’s character.
It’s about Dave Bautista and Mantis together, who become the one hand close friends, and then, on the other hand, she’s a surrogate daughter for the daughter that was murdered.
And of course Baby Groot’s relationship with all of them, they are the worst parents in the entire world! Who else brings a two-year-old son into a giant battle with a giant monster? Terrible parents! And maybe Gamora and Rocket are better than the other two. The other two are terrible. All of those things come together in a way that seems pretty magical.
