Our first peek at Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 came out in October, with a slow-mo tease of Star-Lord and the rest of the motley space-saving crew. Now we’re getting a better look at what the sequel has in store with a longer trailer starring Baby Groot and his itchy trigger finger.
Set to the backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage. We don’t get much in the way of plot hints in the trailer, but we do get to see what fans loved best about the first film: the Guardians’ hijinks and hilarious banter.
The gang appear to have gotten their hands on some kind of dangerous nuclear device. “Whatever you do, don’t push this button,” Rocket warns a painfully-adorable Baby Groot. “Because that will set off the bomb immediately and we’ll all be dead.”
Of course, nothing is that simple, and itty bitty Groot’s comical obsession with the fatal button threatens to put an end to everyone and everything in its path. Impending doom has never looked so cute.
We also get a look at the Abilisk, a multi-dimensional monster we previously got a glimpse of in concept art, and Pom Klementieff’s Mantis. Everything looks colourful and epic, with just the right amount of camp – in other worse, exactly what you want from a Guardians of the Galaxy film.
Check out the trailer above and look for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 to debut in cinemas in May 2017.
