To evade Ronan, Peter is forced to enlist help from a crew of misfits—Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper), Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), Gamora (Zoe Saldaña), and Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista). But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last desperate stand, with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
