Chris Pratt Says the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Story is so Good it Moved Him to Tears
Chris Pratt is currently hitting the promo trail for Jurassic World, but that doesn't mean that he hasn't got time to reveal a few teasers for one of his next big movies, Guardians of the Galaxy 2. James Gunn revealed last month that he has given Marvel his initial 70 page treatment for the movie, which is scheduled to start shooting early next year, and yesterday Gunn announced that the first draft of the script had been completed.
 
But in a conversation with Digital Spy Pratt revealed he has already had a little taster of what James Gunn has planned for the Marvel sequel, and he says it was so good it moved him to tears.

"We've talked a little," said Pratt of his conversations with Gunn."I know some of the songs that are going to be on Awesome Mix Vol 2. All I can tell you because obviously, I'm not allowed to say anything, nor would I want to because it would be like telling a kid what's under the tree before Christmas morning; I would encourage people not to poke holes in the paper and peek, allow yourself the 'Christmas morning'. I will say is that [Gunn's] pitch and his idea legitimately put tears in my eyes. It is so good, it's so good. I can not wait to get started on it and I can not wait for people to see what he's going to pull off with this second movie. It's so big and so good.

But it wasn't just Pratt who was impressed by Gunn's work. The actor also confirmed Gunn's earlier report that, unlike with a number of other movies in the MCU, Marvel executives had absolutely no changes for Gunn to make to his initial story.

"From what I understand, Marvel [heard Gunn's pitch] and they said nothing, they were like....'perfect'. There was no micromanaging of the idea. They just loved it so much they didn't even have a note for it. It's going to be remarkable."



This can only be good news for fans of Marvel and the Guardians of the Galaxy property who will be dearly hoping that Guardians of the Galaxy 2 can build on the success of its predecessor, and continue to elevate the Marvel cosmic team to prominence in the comic book world. Little is known about Gunn's sequel, other than the fact that it will reveal the identity of Peter Quill's father and introduce two new characters, neither of which will be Captain Marvel.
