With the release of Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 in mere days, franchise chief James Gunn already has his eyes to the future of the Guardians. In a recent interview, Gunn revealed that he has been discussing the future with Star-Lord actor Chris Pratt, and having “some pretty intense conversations” with Zoe Saldana about her significant role in the upcoming sequel.

Gunn also went on to say that the only travel plans he has on the docket for his near future are those of a relaxing nature in order to  “get my head on straight after three years of waking up and going to sleep and thinking about a talking raccoon.”

“I love these characters,” Gunn says. “Including my father and my dog, my mother had eight kids, and I have all these Guardians. They’re my kids.”
