Guardians of the Galaxy sequel is happening

Writer and director James Gunn says the next film will arrive on 28 July 2017

If you’ve just seen James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy at the cinema and feel you wanted more – you’re in luck, the sequel’s already set. 


The writer and director was unable to attend Comic-Con, but greeted fans in a video link with star Chris Pratt to announce the news. 

Gunn will once again write and direct, and although it wasn’t made clear whether Pratt would return as Peter Quill, his presence in the video link seems a pretty good hint, right?

The current film has just released in cinemas with a bumper cast including Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper and Dave Bautista. 

Although, the cast may want to beef up their knowledge of the film, seen here getting beaten by a 5-year-old in a Guardians quiz…
