Since I’ve been a fan of Chris Pratt since he was on Everwood back in the day, I was thrilled to find out that we would be interviewing him as part of my #GotGVol2Event press trip with Disney. Our Chris Pratt interview might be one of my top favorites that I’ve done!
It was great to get a glimpse of Star-Lord from Chris Pratt’s perspective!
Chris Pratt Interview Into the Mind of Star-Lord
The Guardians of the Galaxy characters have all evolved from the first movie to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. You’ll see even more personality developing in all of them, even Groot!
In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Peter Quill (aka Star-Lord) definitely continues his role as leader of his group of misfits. Yep, they’re all still misfits. That’s why we love them, right?
I love that Star-Lord isn’t exactly the picture of an ideal leader and yet he gets the job done. In our Chris Pratt intervew it was great to learn a bit more about the character and experience from the man who brings Peter Quill to life!
Chris Pratt Interview
Our interview with Chris was amazing. He’s a genuinely authentic guy who was so friendly and down to earth. I loved some of the things he shared with us about his experience making the movie.
- He mentioned that he was so relieved when he finally saw the movie because it was like the script. He was happy that it ended up being as good as the script.
- Chris Pratt was the first person to hear the story of the second movie. Director James Gunn shared it with him just weeks after the release of the first film. Chris said it made him cry.
- He describes Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 as a very contemporary story that a lot of kids growing up now will be able to relate to.
- He shared that he thinks the storyline for the movie is almost Shakesperean in its design. It’s full of profound personal relationships that offer so many layers to the plot.
I loved that you could tell just how much he cared about this film and the franchise. He also shared a few fun things with us too!
- In the movie, the shirt that Peter Quill wears is actually a label from a candy wrapper in the first movie. Chris Pratt believes it’s Peter Quill’s favorite candy!
- There was some improv done on the set and some of those improv moments actually made it into the film!
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opens in theaters Friday, May 5th!
