Marvel has graced our tired minds with a sneak peek trailer of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Electric Boogaloo; Lord(e) knows we needed it.
A majority of the trailer’s shots are dialogue-less scenes of the old ragtag group of space pirates that blasted their way into our hearts 2 years ago, and Yondu; this time he’s got a sick solid red mohawk! What really gives this trailer it’s helping of ‘member berry flavoring is the song choice. Many fans will remember it as the tune that hooked them onto the film from the start, Blue Swede’s Hooked on a Feeling.
You had me at OOGA CHAKA, OOGA OOGA.
Besides re-introducing us to the Guardians, the trailer also lets us know that Peter ‘Star Lord’ Quill and Gamora are now together…and that they have relationship issues (of course).
Quilly should have taken a look at Avatar and seen what happened the last time Zoe Saldana partook in some cross-species lovin’. Actually, I remember so little of Avatar, I don’t even know what happened last time either.
In my opinion, the last third of the trailer is all that’s worth watching. It’s where we get Dr. Drax therapize (not a real word) Star Lord, an awkward and unwarranted bro hug, and wee baby Groot wearing what looks like a wee baby Star Lord jacket.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is slated for a release date of May 5th, 2017, the usual time slot given to all of Disney’s top blockbusters. Although it does suck that we still what feels like forever (little over 7 months) until Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 comes to a theater near us, let the sneak peek below satiate your Marvel Munchies.
