INCOMING: Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. II



WIRED: The first sneak-peak at next summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is here, and though this teaser is barely a minute and a half long, that’s more than enough time to give you a Groot awakening this morning. As Blue Swede’s “Hooked on a Feeling” ooga-shockas in the background, we see Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) mid-flight, Gamora (Zoe Saldana) mid-fight, and Rocket (Bradley Cooper) mid-strut, and later, we get to witness Star-Lord and Dax (Dave Bautista) have brutal-truth heart-to-heart. (“You just need to find a woman who is pathetic, like you,” Dax advises him.) But the real star of Guardians isn’t glimpsed until the very end, when Rocket turns around reveals that he’s carrying none other than a wee-sized Groot on his shoulder. Vol. 2 doesn’t open until May 5, but feel free to shout “Baby Groot, there it is!” as often as you’d like between now and then. MORE
