The synopsis for the film is as follows:
Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favourite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.
The trailer gives us are first look Kurt Russell as Peter’s father Ego the Living Planet who looks nothing like a Living Planet and more like Kurt Russell….for now at least.

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 Kurt Russell, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan and Tommy Flanagan.
