Yesterday was all about the Solar Eclipse, which was pretty amazing to watch. Did you see it? My kids and I enjoyed the galactical-like experience. For just a few minutes, it felt like we were on another planet.
But today is all about the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 on Blu-ray™. And this release, including all of the fun bonus features is almost like reliving the solar eclipse experience. Just watch Baby Groot.
About Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2
If you missed my previous post, I shared the interview we got to do with “Nebula” and “Mantis” (check it out here). Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand. “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is written and directed by James Gunn and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, featuring Vin Diesel as Baby Groot, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Sean Gunn, Tommy Flanagan, Laura Haddock, with Sylvester Stallone, and Kurt Russell.
About the soundtrack
Director James Gunn, talks in detail about the music he chose for this film. Every song for each scene that was chosen was intentional. In the bonus features releasing today, he shares his love of the music and the particular song choices for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
