With Marvel Studios, VFX teams, and director James Gunn hard at work to finish Guardians, the director shared that this upcoming project is a “much bigger movie than the other two movies”:

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is going to be “something completely different,” according to @JamesGunn.

“This is a much bigger movie than the other two movies, and it’s a much more emotional movie than the other two movies.”

In a brand new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Gunn revealed:

“This is a much bigger movie than the other two movies, and it’s a much more emotional movie than the other two movies,” Gunn teased. “And it’s a longer movie than the other two movies – it’s bigger in every way. It was really comfortable, actually … I’m really familiar with the actors, so I know what they have to do.”

“They’ve gotten better at their jobs so that I don’t have to bash them around so much. In a lot of ways, it was really easy – it’s really natural for me. I understand this. But I’m also really pushing myself and trying to create something completely different from what came before it, but that also honors what came before it.”

Nebula actress added to Gunn’s Comment:

“It definitely feels like the most epic. It’s complex, and the characters are having to deal with that. It’s very emotional for all of them. And then we’re also dealing with the fact that this is the end of an era of sorts, and so there’s a lot of emotion.”

Not every Guardian is meeting their demise in Vol. 3, as James Gunn confirmed at the 2022 San Diego Comic-Con, but the movie will wrap up this era of Gunn’s series.

Nonetheless, with I Am Groot and Guardians of the Galaxy: Holiday Special hitting Disney+ this year before Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, fans will have more than enough content to fill their Star-Lord needs before May 5, 2023.
