Hollywood star Chris Pratt debuted the new trailer for 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

Chris Pratt has debuted the new trailer for 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'.

The 37-year-old actor - who has reprised the role of Star-Lord for the Marvel movie - showcased new footage of the much-anticipated sci-fi film during an episode of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'.

The new trailer serves as an introduction to Kurt Russell's character Ego the Living Planet, who is seen telling Sky-Lord: "After all these years, I've found you."

To which he responds: "And who the hell are you?"

Then, Ego the Living Planet tells Star-Lord: "I'm your dad."

The new trailer also introduces the new villain Ayesha, who aspires to "cleanse the universe" of fear and jealousy.

Meanwhile, Dave Bautista - who has reprised the role of Drax the Destroyer for the new movie - recently admitted he bombarded Kurt Russell with "fanboy questions" on the set of 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'.

The 48-year-old wrestler-turned-actor confessed to quizzing the Hollywood star on his previous roles.

He said: "I didn't want to hit him with all of the fanboy questions right off the bat, but as soon as I got comfortable with him I did. He's great and super down to the earth, he's a very social guy and doesn't like to separate himself from the younger cast, he's got a lot of great stories, he's very good looking ... he's a very interesting guy!"

Asked what the pair spoke about, he added: "The first thing I asked him about was 'Big Trouble in Little China', I just wanted to know more about that, and what he thought about The Rock being recast as Jack Burton and he said, 'Ah, I don't care.' And I said 'Really?' I was really upset by that because to me, The Rock is not Jack Burton, like Chris Pratt would make a much better Jack Burton.

"I take that stuff very personally, because I'm a fan boy first, I am a geek at heart. So, he just didn't care, 'Oh I'm sure he'll do a great job' and then of course I asked 'Escape from New York' questions, and we had a lot of good conversations about that."

The gang are back, with a rollicking plot involving stolen batteries and Ego (Russell) who may or may not be the long-lost dad of Peter Quill (Pratt). It’s very CGI-heavy, sometimes tiringly so, but the humour still charms and the finale picks it up after a sluggish second act.
