We’ve written a great deal about what makes the first Guardians of the Galaxy so special, but a key component of its offbeat personality is derived from its soundtrack. An action-packed space opera set to pop hits from the ’60s and ’70s would be odd on its own, but it’s especially odd to her those songs score a Marvel Studios movie. It’s the kind of bold choice that paid off – the movie was a hit, the soundtrack became the first album consisting entirely of previously released songs to top the Billboard charts, and writer/director James Gunn gets to actively tease which songs will appear in the upcoming sequel. And that’s exactly what he’s done in a new interview.

One of the most beloved moments from Guardians of the Galaxy was the appearance of Baby Groot at the end of the movie. His appearance was made even more lovable when it was followed by an adorable credits scene featuring the tiny version of Vin Diesel’s giant walking tree dancing to the tune “I Want You Back” by The Jackson 5. The result was Disney and Marvel being behind the curve when it came to having merchandise of the little guy to sell to fans in the months that followed.
Now here we are with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and we know that Baby Groot (who is now walking on his own outside of a pot) will be a big part of the sequel. However, his inclusion, as wonderful as it may be, has prompted many to think that the use of the tiny Groot is just a marketing ploy used to sell merchandise. But director James Gunn, who is always honest and open with his responses to fans, explains that this simply isn’t the case.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer arrived a few days ago, following hot on the heels of a brisk sneak preview that had been assembled to play in theaters with Doctor Strange. And as you’d expect from any second preview, the new batch of footage is longer, more polished and full of more shots to overly examine, should that be your unhealthy hobby.
Well, it’s my unhealthy hobby. Let’s go through this thing frame-by-frame.
