Watch: Check out Baby Groot in this Guardians of the Galaxy 2 teaser
The gang of intergalactic misfits is back together in the first teaser trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which opens in theaters in 25 April 2017.
Set to the hit from the first film, 'Hooked on a Feeling' by Blue Swede (a song which played a very important role in the first film), the new sneak peak doesn't give us any clear hints about the film's plot; but one thing is crystal clear: This film too will have the same wry, definitive sense of humor that was a first for a superhero film. Marvel also shared the official poster for the film:

"There are two types of beings in the universe. Those who dance, and those who do not," Drax the Destroyer tells Peter Quill aka Star Lord in the teaser. "You just need to find a woman who is pathetic. Like you". The teaser concludes with a shot of the Bradley Cooper-voiced Rocky Raccoon blasting through the wall.
But what about Vin Diesel, you ask? Yes, he’s back as Baby Groot. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has confirmed he is the same as the full-sized Groot, only now he’s tiny and adorable.
“He remembers. He’s not mentally a baby, he is still Groot,” Feige told Collider in July. “The amount of heart that you get out of this trash panda raccoon and now this little twig baby Groot is actually awe-inspiring.”
