New Plot Details For GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 Revealed

The embargo on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 set reports has lifted, revealing how Nebula first comes aboard The Milano and how The Ravagers and Yondu become key players in James Gunn's sequel.

The embargo on the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 set visit reports has lifted, so prepare to be bombarded with new interviews, photos and plot details.  If you're particularly interested in learning more about the plot or seeing if your theories on why Nebula and Yondu are members of the team are correct, we've got you covered thanks to /Film.  Here's what they learned from their time on the Atlanta, Georgia set.
  • The sequel starts 3 months later after the first.
  • The Guardians are a new team/faction out in the galaxy doing good deeds and services...but for a price.  Case in point, they go to save The Sovereign People from an inter-dimensional monster who's trying to devour their planet's power source.  To "pay" the Guardians, The Sovereign People have captured Nebula and are willing to exchange her if Star-Lord and co. take care of the beast.
  • The Guardians want to take Nebula to the planet Xandar and turn her over to the Nova Corps. but of course, things go awry and that journey becomes very complicated according to James Gunn.
  • As for their defeat of the inter-dimensional monster, it seems Rocket didn't view Nebula as suitable payment and stole a few of the planet's power source/batteries which pisses of The Sovereign People and their leader Ayesha.  In response, she hired The Ravagers to go after The Guardians and retrieve the batteries.
  • The Sovereign are genetically created beings who are sticklers for proper decorum and etiquette. Rocket's theft deeply offends them and it seems they'll go to any length to have their honor restored.
  • Yondu tries to convince The Ravagers not to go after Quill and the rest  of the Guardians but they don't listen to him. With Yondu not going after Quill after not handing over the "orb" at the end of the first film and now speaking against taking the job from Ayesha, Taserface leads a rebellion and overthrows Yondu as leader of The Ravagers.
  • The group will be split up early on in the movie and the question the film presents to the audience becomes IF and WHEN will they reunite.
  • The two main villains are Ayesha and Taserface, who Kevin Feige describes as, "less grandiose in their ambitions than [Ronan]."
  • With the Guardian's legend grown to sizable proportions following their defeat of Ronan and Peter managing to hold and Infinity Stone and walk away unscathed, word eventually reaches Ego, who comes looking for his son. It seems he's been looking for Peter for a long time after Yondu failed to deliver him.
  • Traveling with Ego is his personal attendant, Mantis. She's described as very naive, making Drax look like a worldly-scholar in comparison.
  • There was one more Guardian included in Gunn's original treatment for the sequel but was ultimately cut during script revisions.  However, Gunn stated that the character would likely appear in a future Guardians installment.
And that's everything revealed about the plot of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 during the set visit.  It seems the big question about the film is whether the team will reunite after they split. And if they do reunite, will that include everyone or will the team lose a few members?

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on May 5, 2017, in 3D and IMAX 3D.

The sequel to 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy was announced at SDCC 2014, a month before the first film's theatrical release.  James Gunn returns to direct and write the screenplay. Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Dave Bautista (Drax), Vin Diesel (Baby Groot), Bradley Cooper (Rocket Raccoon), Michael Rooker (Yondu), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Sean Gunn (Kraglin), Glenn Close (Irani Rael - Nova Corps Supreme Commander). Joining them are Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Elizabeth Debicki (Ayesha), Chris Sullivan (Taserface), and Kurt Russell (Ego). John C. Reilly (Nova Corpsman Rhomann Dey) and Benico del Toro (The Collector) will not be returning for the sequel.

The film will explore the Guardians attempting to navigate their new found fame after defeating Ronan the Accusser in the first installment.  While living up their namesake, the team becomes tangled up in a scheme involving Star-Lord's biological father, The Ravagers, and the mysterious Ayesha -  High Priestess and the leader of the Sovereign people.
