James Gunn posted the footage with the following message on his Facebook page:
So the first Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer will be coming in not too long, but we know how thirsty you guys are for a glimpse – so we put together this special sneak peak at #GotGVol2 for you.
It’s a nice touch from Gunn and Marvel to drop this footage along with the new poster (see above) before the first trailer drops in the near future. It doesn’t give much away, other than Dave Bautista’s Drax will be as deadpan hilarious as he was in the original and the money shot of Rocket with Baby Groot at the end. Not much has been revealed in terms of plot for the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel other than the Guardians will battle a new threat and search for Peter Quill’s father. The cast of Guardians of the Galaxy includes Chris Pratt, , Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn and Glenn Close, with newcomers to the fold Kurt Russell, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan and Tommy Flanagan.
Guardians of the Galaxy is scheduled for cinematic release on the 5th May 2017.
