5 things you don't know about Baby Groot of 'Guardians'

Stay tuned through the closing credits of "Guardians, Vol. 2" to spot Groot's contributions throughout. But Gunn's sequel shares a lot of heart, swashbuckling visuals and more than a few solid belly laughs.

He also knows we're already invested in these characters, and doesn't mind spending some of the capital he earned last time out. He has also spilled the beans on his chemistry with Mantis in the film. In comics form, the Guardians never achieved the fame or popularity of their Marvel colleagues, The Avengers or the X-Men, but the fans have loved them.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 stars Chris Pratt as Peter Quill aka Star Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Bradley Cooper as Rocket and Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer.

The development certainly complicated the relationship between Groot and Rocket, a notoriously lonesome creature with only the talking plant as his true friend. In one of the best opening sequences of recent memory, we are brought back into the story by seeing the Guardians fighting a giant - and visually imaginative - monster together, scored by a pre-1990s pop song. Apart from protecting the galaxy, the guardians must now act as Baby Groot's surrogate parents. I saw it four times in theaters.

But all might be well when Quill finally meets his father, Ego (who else but Kurt Russell?) and learns the surprising news of his lineage.

Quill's thing is that he was plucked from Earth at a young age by a blue-skinned bandit named Yondu (Michael Rooker), and trained in the art of thieving before he absconded with the ragtag crew who would become the Guardians.

They have remained close for the sake of their sons Mason , seven, and Reign , two, and four-year-old daughter Penelope . Both Younes and his girl wore matching outfits, casual white t-shirts and blue jeans.

As for Russell's on-screen son, Chris Pratt?

When the original "Guardians of the Galaxy" debuted in 2014 its anarchic B-picture soul made it such a scruffy, raffish interloper that a anxious Marvel made sure to put "from the studio that brought you "The Avengers" " at the bottom of its advertising. The effects (which are kick-ass even in the background) and the action that most films would place in the foreground is simply a backdrop here. In addition, the plot is wafer-thin and it is hard to shake the suspicion that Baby Groot was more of a marketing creation than an artistic decision. "Their papa goes, 'It's Gamora.' They go, 'Gamora.Hulk?' [I said], 'Yea, Mama knows the Hulk!'"

"Ever since I was a little kid, since I was 10 years old, you have to make the team".

Honestly, I could care less what the storyline of either "Guardians" film is about because all I really want is an opportunity to hang out with these lovable misfits who bicker, call each other names, and complain about each other's shortcomings but when the time comes, are always there to have each other's back.

What worked in the first film, something of a surprise hit in 2014, works again here.

Much like the original, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 has a superb collection of music on the soundtrack including Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain", and of course the 1972 hit "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)" by Looking Glass.
