Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Wraps Production!
Yesterday, star Chris Pratt wrapped his reprisal of Star Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and later that day director James Gunn took to Twitter to announce that principal photography on the Marvel Studios sequel has officially wrapped after several months at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. Those attending Comic-Con festivities in San Diego next month can look for Gunn, Pratt and more to take the Hall H stage, likely with cool new footage, but in the meantime fans can tide themselves over with a new look at Pratt (via Instagram) and his stunt-man Tony McFarr on set in the gallery below!
And that’s a wrap on #GoTGVol2. WHEW. So much gratitude to my wonderful cast and crew. Thank you all.
