The countdown is on! Get set for what might be the galaxy’s most anticipated movie of… well, forever, as Star-Lord and all your favorites finally reunite — Gamora, Drax, Rocket and now that oh-so-adorable Baby Groot — in Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, opening everywhere in theaters May 5. It topped Fandango’s own survey of the movies fans are most looking forward to seeing in 2017, so we know you’re as stoked as we are to finally see the next wave of mischief and mayhem blast into theaters three years after the original took the world by storm.
The sequel to the 2014 intergalactic hit based on the classic Marvel comic finds Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), searching for his dad, literally a giant sentient planet named Ego the Living Planet (Kurt Russell). Though we still don’t know a whole lot about plot specifics, director James Gunn has said that while the first film was about building the family, the sequel is about what happens now that they’ve become a family. Alums Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista and Zoe Saldana are also back for more space-traveling adventures, traversing the outer limits of the cosmos to the soundtrack of the Awesome Mix Vol. 2.
So get those headphones on, turn the volume up and make sure you don’t get sold out: get your tickets, on sale now!
