Guardians of the Galaxy 2 releases the Kraken… concept art

Here’s a clue about what to expect from the Marvel space opera


We’re getting ever closer to the release of sci-fi sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 next April, and accordingly we’re getting to see a bit of what we can expect for Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and pals in their new adventure.


In a piece of concept art released by director James Gunn on his Twitter feed, the team (including Zoe Saldana’s Gamora, Dave Bautista’s Drax, Vin Diesel’s newly-small Groot and Bradley Cooper’s Rocket alongside Pratt’s Peter Quill) can be seen battling some kind of intergalactic beastie, which Gunn revealed was called an Abilisk (not a space-kraken, as one might hope).

As for why the team are attacking this unfortunate creature, well, it’s still a bit of a mystery – but whatever the truth, it’s bound to be backed by an amazing 80s soundtrack. Roll on April! 


Guardians of the Galaxy will be released in April 2017
