The film Returns to the rag-tag group of space criminals as they try to fight an inter-dimensional space monster and carries on from there in the same comedic action style that was fantastically done in the first film, with a great soundtrack and fun science fiction, but also adds a theme of friendship and family. This film focuses on Starlord meeting his father, and what that means for himself and the group, as well as the whole rest of the galaxy. All the same characters from the first film are back, with Yondu and Nebula having greater roles as Starlord’s surrogate father and Gamora’s rival sister, to greater support the theme of family.

The film is directed by James Gunn, and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel as Starlord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Baby Groot, with supporting roles from Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, and Kurt Russell.
