Now, with the recent release of a shiny new trailer for ' upcoming , it would seem that a widespread sense of over-excitement regarding the movie has kicked in to a noticeable and noteworthy extent. Sure, we were already collectively fairly excited to see and the gang return, but it seems that the latest trailer pushed a whole lot of us over the edge into rampant, rampaging impatience. After all, though the movie is very much on its way, it won't actually be hitting theaters until May 5, 2017 — two whole months from now.

Thankfully, then, it seems that director and co. have stuffed the film's latest trailer with some small, nerdy details for us to keep ourselves busy with, including that mysterious, alien language-covered t-shirt that Star-Lord was wearing throughout. So, as to not keep us all in too much suspense, though:

Chris Pratt Just Explained THAT T-Shirt In The New 'Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2' Trailer

Or, at least, he sort of already did a whole damn month ago. Y'see, while speaking to /Film back in February, discussed the t-shirt in question, which we had caught our first glimpse of (above) back in the last Guardians teaser trailer. And, as it turns out, while he may not technically be able to translate it:

"Somebody can, because it’s a real language apparently. They’ve created a real alphabet, but it’s from – I think, I might be making this up – I think it’s from a candy wrapper from the first movie. This is like a space brand of some kind so it’s like on my shirt the way anyone would be wearing an ironic Reese’s Pieces shirt or something like that."

Which, in fairness, isn't necessarily the most trustworthy explanation — the whole "I might be making this up" part inevitably suggests that we take it with a solid pinch of salt — but is pretty darned neat all the same.

Now, all we have to do is find that damn candy wrapper in the first movie to see whether or not Pratt is screwing with us.

What do you think, though? Do you have an alternate theory regarding the content of Star-Lord's t-shirt? Let us know below!
