Guardians Of The Galaxy Volume 3 brings back the Guardians as we’ve known them with a few changes. We’re treated to an excellent ending for the original Guardians in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Those original Guardians are:
- Peter Quill/Starlord (Chris Pratt)
- Gamora (Zoe Saldana) – She’s different, but she’s Gamora
- Nebula (Karen Gillan)
- Groot (Vin Diesel)
- Drax (Dave Bautista)
- Mantis (Pom Klementieff)
- Rocket The Raccoon (Bradley Cooper)
- New edition Kraglin (Sean Gunn)
- New edition Cosmo the Space Dog (Maria Bakalova)
