James Gunn Talks Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Blu-Ray and Star Wars Crossover



James Gunn attended a recent Entertainment and Tech Summit where he briefly spoke about Guardians of the Galaxy 2, the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Blu-Ray, and even answered a question about a potential crossover with Star Wars.

Variety reports:

Regarding Guardians of the Galaxy 2:

James Gunn confirmed the return of Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax and Rocket Raccoon.

Other characters from the first film will appear.

New Guardians of the Galaxy members may be added to the team.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will uncover some secrets that were revealed in the first movie.

Guardians of the Galaxy Blu-Ray, which gets released December 9th:

It will feature director's commentary, deleted scenes, with one scene featuring Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) faking a laugh at Peter Quill’s (Chris Pratt) plan.

“In the long version of the scene where Rocket is laughing at Quill, Quill gets very offended by that and takes a vote of the other Guardians to see who thinks that the laugh is fake,” Gunn said. “It’s a pretty fake laugh, and I think Rocket gets hurt that Groot goes against him.”

Possibility for a Guardians of the Galaxy / Star Wars crossover?

Gunn said a crossover with one particular Disney property was unlikely — even if his characters do have the ability to travel to galaxies far, far away.

“‘Star Wars’ was a long time ago,” Gunn said. “It would have to be time travel.”
