James Gunn teases a little bit of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2’s Baby Groot

Production continues Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and director James Gunn has taken to Facebook (via Squareeyed) to share an interesting part of his filmmaking process.

“Recently I mentioned how I draw every single shot in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 before we ever shoot a frame,” he writes.

“I’ll spread whole scenes over my office floor or all around the walls, sometimes hundreds of shots, and it will give me an idea of how the scene flows, what’s smooth, what’s jumbled, and even what works comedically. Over the entire film I draw thousands of these thumbnails…Many of them are messy and it’s impossible for anyone other than me to tell what they are. Some of them get turned over to accomplished storyboard artists to flesh out. Some of them go directly to our pre-visualization team to turn into animated storyboards. And others just stay in their primitive state.

“Many of you asked to see these drawings so I thought I’d start posting thumbnails of whatever it was we shot that day on ‪#‎GotGVol2‬. I’m not going to explain what the shot is – as I said, they’re messy. But maybe you can match the thumbnail to the shot when the movie is released.”

Gunn also revealed he’ll be posting additional pieces like this every Wednesday, so that’ll be nice!

Written and directed by Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 stars Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord; Zoe Saldana as Gamora; Dave Bautista as Drax; Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot; Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket; Michael Rooker as Yondu; Karen Gillan as Nebula; and Sean Gunn as Kraglin. New cast members include Pom Klementieff, who plays Mantis, Elizabeth Debicki , Chris Sullivan and Kurt Russell. The film will debut in theaters on May 5, 2017.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
