Learn What Turned Peter Quill into Star-Lord in an All-New Featurette

Chris Pratt tells you what drew him to the role Peter Quill in Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' in theaters August 1!



Being one of the only humans traveling the galaxy isn't a walk in the park. A challenge too big for some, but one Chris Pratt looked forward to when taking on the role of Peter Quill in Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy," in theaters August 1!

Peter Quill wasn't born a hero, but he had to become one. As Star-Lord, Quill teams up with Gamora (Zoe Saldana), the most dangerous woman in the universe; Drax (Dave Bautista), who has a tendency to destroy; Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper), the heavily-armed enigma; and Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), a talking tree, to take down Ronan (Lee Pace) and save the galaxy.

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team--the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits--Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon; Groot, a tree-like humanoid; the deadly and enigmatic Gamora; and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand--with the galaxy's fate in the balance.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, which first appeared in comic books in MARVEL SUPER-HEROES #18 (Jan. 1969), stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, featuring Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Nova Prime Rael and Benicio del Toro as The Collector.

James Gunn is the director of the film with Kevin Feige producing, and Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Jeremy Latcham, Alan Fine and Stan Lee serve as executive producers. The film is written by James Gunn and Nicole Perlman. Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" releases in U.S. theaters on August 1, 2014.
