This is a pretty brief trailer, working more as an announcement trailer than a full-fledged look at the glorious return of the Guardians to the big screen. After all, James Gunn did say that this was just a sneak peek at a longer trailer that we'll see later. But what we have right now pretty much tells us all that we need to know- the Guardians of the Galaxy are back and better than ever. The use of "Hooked on a Feeling," which was the defining song of the original film's marketing campaign, is a nice touch, and the trailer gives us a nice look at each of the returning characters from the original. Pratt's Star Lord is roguish as usual, Drax (Dave Bautista) is blunt and awkward, Gamora (Zoe Saldana) is taking down more bad guys, and Rocket (Bradley Cooper) is blowing things up again. Oh, and Baby Groot (Vin Diesel) is there too! How could I forget? This looks like a lot of fun, and while I'm still hoping that we get a better look soon, this sneak peek at one of next summer's biggest movies is more than sufficient for now.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 debuts in theaters on May 5, 2017.
