James Gunn has taken to Facebook to show fans one of the thumbnails from the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. He has said that he’ll be sharing a new sketch from the movie each Wednesday so check back for that! His message is copied below and he invited fans to guess what was going on in the pictured scene. What do you think it shows?
Recently I mentioned how I draw every single shot in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 before we ever shoot a frame. 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.
While the person holding the animal definitely looks like Groot, it’s not clear what the object in the foreground is. Perhaps Rocket or an unfortunate enemy? Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 comes out in 2017 and will star the original cast plus newcomers Kurt Russell, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan and Pom Klementieff.
