Chris Pratt on Returning as Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
I just really, really love him. He said you asked him to be… Pratt: Be my dad in real life. Does that make sense? I mean, I think all of the evidence that Quill has to who his father is, he learns it at the same time the audience does from the first movie. You know what I mean?
So as he learns with the audience during the course of this second journey who that is. Did they meet each other immediately and talk or is there a little bit of a sort of adversarial relationship, when they meet?Chris Pratt and Dave Bautista Screen Test - Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy
There was a moment in rehearsal, where Kurt — the rehearsal process was so awesome with him. It was so fun and cool and surreal.
You gotta go do this thing. But he was like, but people know who he is. How has Star-Lord evolved in this film?

How is he different from the first film? Is he more of a leader? He still has to deal with Rocket and he still has to deal with Drax and Gamora and the way that it is.
Has messing with the power stone done anything at all to you? Well, it plays a certain role. James is a fantastic curator for that kind of music. Laughs You know, we get cooler songs. Definitely still very honest as a narrative tool. Do you feel empowered about how the audience responded to the first one? And at the time, when it came out, it sounded like it was going to be something so different from what was MCU prior to. And then everybody really embraced it. They really liked what you guys were trying.
It was like, oh god, this is not looking good. People really liked it.
So we are doing that in this movie. The pressure is on now to do the same thing, which is surprise you and do something different.
So you know what? Going back to the music, you talk about the music being really important to the narrative and actually having an emotional impact. How does that come in? Is Gunn doing that in a lot of scenes? And we did that from time to time and I love it and James is really open to it. Those songs were really playing and a lot of the score was playing, like the scene where Groot is protecting us in his cocoon before we crashed into Xandar.
And so, that stuff really worked. So I was wondering if you could talk a little bit about what his relationship is like with Yondu in this film, especially with the Ravagers playing a larger role?

Laughs I better not. I was going to follow-up, because Kevin told us earlier today that Star-Lord finds himself sort of caught between these two father figures. Kevin Feige said that? I would say Star-Lord kind of finds himself caught between these father figures. They keep talking about how James really gets the emotions and a lot of deep emotions.
Can you talk about that side of this? Well, yeah, I mean, what really worked, I thought, for the first movie, one thing that I think that people really responded to was the tone. And tone is a culmination of all of those things — emotion, irreverence, comedy, drama, all the things that worked in the first movie, those things are all here. And certainly, the emotion is there. And in many ways, more complex and even deeper.
