Chris Pratt Reveals When ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3’ Will Start Filming

Pratt knows everything that happens too!

Chris Pratt offered an update on James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 by revealing when the Marvel film is looking to begin principal photography.

James Gunn is busy in the DC universe at the moment, currently filming the Peacemaker HBO Max series, but he will return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe to close out his Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy. We recently learned that Vol. 3 will hit theaters on May 23, 2023. The good news is we will be able to see Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord and the rest of the team before then in Thor: Love and Thunder, which will arrive next year.

During the production of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, a Holiday Special for Disney Plus will also be filmed. In an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Chris Pratt shared that filming on the sequel will begin at the end of the year:

“We will be shooting that at the end of this year and the beginning of next year, so like November to maybe April.”

It’s well known at this point that James Gunn was originally fired from Vol. 3, and because of that, Chris Pratt knows everything since the script has been finished for some time:

“Yes, well the script was written years ago because we were going to do it years ago, and due to unforeseen circumstances and then a pandemic – I can’t – I don’t even really remember what happened, but for some reason we didn’t shoot it and now, by the grace of God, we will shoot it, and it will be directed by James Gunn, and that’s really f***ing cool!”

Do you think Vol. 3 will be the last time we see Chris Pratt as Star-Lord? Comment below!

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is expected to star Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, and Sean Gunn. Most of the cast was last seen in Avengers: Endgame. Here is the official synopsis for the Marvel Studios movie:

The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Paul Rudd, Jeremy Renner, Brie Larson, Josh Brolin, and Chris Pratt.
