The third part of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise received widespread acclaim and played a crucial role in Marvel’s resurgence. The franchise’s resurgence can be largely attributed to the writer and director, James Gunn, who was given complete creative freedom.

Gunn’s genius lies in his ability to unite a diverse cast of characters and unite them in a compelling storyline, breathing new life into an obscure comic book series and transforming it into a global phenomenon.

The ensemble cast in the movie has its anchor in Chris Pratt, who portrays the character of Peter Quill/Star-Lord. Pratt’s life journey resembles that of his character, and his previous iconic roles have helped him transition from being a mere comedic presence to a genuine leading man in the industry.

At a particular moment, he made a decision that had consequences beyond ticket sales. Pratt was motivated by the admirable charitable work of Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, known for visiting sick children in hospitals.

“I stole the jacket and some of the wardrobe so that, if this movie comes out and does what everyone hopes it can, I can follow the example of someone – say, like, a Russell Wilson, you know – and go visit kids. If it was a big enough movie, to where it would mean something to a kid who’s sick in the hospital for Peter Quill or Star-Lord to come visit them, I’ll do that.”

The actor saw an opportunity to make a difference and decided to use his celebrity status to help children facing difficult times in case Guardians of the Galaxy became a massive success. The impact of Guardians of the Galaxy goes beyond its financial success in theaters. Gunn’s return for the finale ensured the same enthusiasm and originality that had made the series so beloved by its audience.
