As rehearsals for “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” get underway, more and more behind the scenes pics have emerged featuring the cast getting back into the “Guardians” groove. Writer/director James Gunn posted a pic showing franchise leads Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista rehearsing, and now Pratt has posted a pic of his own.
The actor, who reprises the role of Star-Lord in the sequel, shared a pic on Instagram of Peter Quill’s trusty Walkman. And yes, the tape inside the cassette player is “Awesome Mix Vol. 2” — the tape left for Quill by his mother in the closing moments of 2014’s “Guardians.”
Feels good to be back in action on Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2!!! I can’t even tell you how excited I am. Ok I’ll try. I’m ecstatic. I’m bursting with joy. I’m overwhelmed by feelings of enthusiasm, joy, gratitude, conviviality, camaraderie, elation, exhilaration. I just used an online thesaurus for these words. I suggest trying that. That way instead of saying “I’m very excited” say, “I’m exhilarated.” Never too late to learn words. The pen is mightier than the sword. I never got that. I could whoop someone’s ass if I had a sword and they only had a pen. WAIT!!! Now I get it. Cause you could use a giant pen with a dagger on one end? And a gun on the other end? No? Whatever. Point is… Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. Is going to be the greatest spectacle film of all time. This is not…. bear with me… using online thesaurus….. Hyperbole! This is not hyperbole!
The soundtrack to the first “Guardians” film was an integral storytelling component, and “Awesome Mix Vol. 2” looks to be no different. Vin Diesel, who voices Groot in the franchise, revealed that a mix CD of the soundtrack was mailed to him along with the script last November. Pratt also wrote that it “feels good to be back in action on Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2” and that he promises it is going ot be “the greatest spectacle film of all time.”
Directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” opens on May 5, 2017.
