Well this is a pleasant surprise! The first teaser trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 is finally here and it’s filled with all of the ooga-chaka goodness one could hope for.
Let’s check it out:
Well that was a pretty great teaser! We didn’t get real story details, but we got a few small peaks at what our favorite band of misfits have been up to since saving the galaxy.
The highlight of the trailer for me was obviously the quick look we got at Baby Groot, decked out in his own little Star Lord-esque jacket. I love the role reversal of Groot standing atop Rocket’s shoulder this time around. I’m already anticipating the exorbitant amount Baby Groot merchandise that will stock store shelves soon. I can’t wait.
The quick interaction between Star Lord and Drax was great as well. Who doesn’t love Drax giving unwanted hugs to his companions? We also got a small snippet of Yondu, with a souped up mohawk, alongside the rest of the Guardians. I’m looking forward to him actually joining the team.
The few action shots of Gamora being a total bad ass were awesome looking. The cinematography and blocking of the sequel looks like it’ll be a step up from the first film, which wasn’t exactly hard to look at either. There are some really beautiful shots here, I can’t wait to see more in the full length trailer.
All in all, this was a fantastic teaser! It gave us just the smallest taste of the film to whet our appetite before we get the full length trailer, which James Gunn has promised is “coming soon”. I wait with bated breath.
In the meantime, we were also lucky enough to get a new poster for the film, which you can see below:
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is set to hit theaters May 5. I don’t even need to ask if you guys are going to check it out. Obviously.
