Marvel has released a new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which premiered on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. Written and directed by James Gunn, the follow-up reunites the titular Guardians of the Galaxy—Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), and of course the adorable Baby Groot (Vin Diesel)—to save the Galaxy a second time.
One of the big takeaways from this new trailer is we finally get a look at Ego, played by Kurt Russell. Ego is a living planet that’s known to cause trouble here and there throughout the galaxy. You might be asking yourself how in the heck Kurt Russell will work as a living planet? Well the short answer is Ego is so powerful he can manifest into a human form. This also explains how Ego can be Star Lord’s father. Now we just have to wait and see if we get Ego in full planet battle action with an angry face and tendrils… Yowza!
