While Chris Pratt may not be a celestial like his MCU counterpart, he shares several other qualities with Star-Lord, including a self-deprecating sense of humour.

Film is cool because it's an hour and a half to two hours. It's a great ride. It's typically three acts - beginning, middle and end. It's going on an adventure and by the end it's all cleaned up.
