Entertainment Weekly has revealed a new image from James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 as part of its 2023 preview. The image shows Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord and Zoe Saldaña’s Gamora, reunited after their last last meeting in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame.

The recent Guardians of the Galaxy-themed holiday special on Disney Plus saw Star-Lord dealing with the loss of the original Gamora, who died during the events of Avengers: Infinity War. The one seen in Vol. 3 is from 2014 and has no memory of her time with Star-Lord. You can see them together in the Vol. 3 below.

Despite the fact that the Vol. 3 image features Star-Lord and Gamora, James Gunn told Entertainment Weekly that he decided to return to the Guardians of the Galaxy series because of a different member of the team. “One of the reasons why I came back to this movie was because I felt like I needed to tell Rocket’s story,” Gunn explained to the site. “I would’ve been very sad not to complete the trilogy for many reasons, but I just feel very connected to Rocket. I feel like nobody would be able to tell his full story if it wasn’t me.”

The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 writer-director added: “To me, Rocket has always been the secret protagonist of the Guardians movies. From the beginning, it has been rooted in who he is as a character. I think he exemplifies a lot of the traits of all the Guardians. They’ve had all these traumas, and it brings them together. I just think that his is more extreme than others.”

With the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 trailer now available on the web, Marvel has also dropped a synopsis for the movie, which reads as follows: “The beloved band of misfits are looking a bit different these days. Peter Quill, still reeling from the loss of Gamora, must rally his team around him to defend the universe along with protecting one of their own. It’s a mission that, if not completed successfully, could quite possibly lead to the end of the Guardians as we know them.”

Written and directed by James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldaña, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Sean Gunn, Sylvester Stallone, Will Poulter, Chukwudi Iwuji and Maria Bakalova.
