The ragtag group of misfits are back to save the Universe. A new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 debuted on Tuesday night (28 February), and by the looks of it, the Guardians have their work cut out for them.

The film’s first trailer, released back in October, gave us a look at Baby Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), and subsequent teasers have offered a glimpse of some of the new characters Guardians vol. 2 will introduce.

This new trailer adds more intrigue by including Nebula (Karen Gillan), a secondary villain from the first film now returning to clash with the Guardians. We also get our first look at golden villain Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki), sitting atop a throne and promising to 'cleanse the universe' of weaknesses like fear, jealousy, and betrayal.

But the trailer’s biggest reveal comes at the tail end, when Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) gets a surprise visit from an older man (played by Kurt Russell) — who reveals himself to be Peter’s long-lost dad. (We might have a Star Wars-esque situation here)

The trailer also shows off more of the series’ now-signature 1970s soundtrack, once again featuring Fleetwood Mac's 'The Chain'. Between the strong comedic elements and music, it’s clear that Vol. 2 is definitely sticking to the franchise’s guns when it comes to replicating the mix of humor and action that made the first film such a success.

The film will make it galactic premier on 5 May 2017.
