We still have to wait over a year to see the sequel to Marvel's hilarious 2014 space adventure, Guardians of the Galaxy, but keeping an eye out for such a far-off date is a lot easier when you can engage with the film's stars on social media.
Christ Pratt, who plays Peter Quill (a.k.a. Star-Lord) recently posted a photo to Instagram that shows his Awesome Mix: Vol. 2 primed for listening, as well as a sweet sentiment expressing his immense excitement about being involved in the film franchise.
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!
Wow. That is a lot of synonyms for excited! Seriously though, how incredibly sweet is Chris Pratt?
If you're not already one of his 3.7 million Instagram followers, I highly suggest hitting that 'follow' button for inspirational quotes with a little bit of Andy Dwyer's random hilarity thrown in from time to time.
Also, Zoe Saldana (Gamora) has been in on the Instagram fun by showing us a look at their rehearsals.
We even got to take a look at some early shots of her green body paint!
And it's not only the actors who have been posting to social media about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The movie's returning director James Gunn has also been updating fans with regular behind-the scenes images.
With a cast like this, I imagine it's pretty hard to get through scenes without cracking up.
Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will reach theaters on May 5, 2017.
