I have to apologize for being so late on announcing this to fans (then again, fans have probably already flooded YouTube for the trailer). I had to compose myself after seeing the first full-length Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer—and also stop myself from viewing it for the hundredth time.

Marvel Studios has created one of the most fun, entertaining, and hilarious hype-pieces to-date. The trailer returns audiences to the space misfits we fell in love with in the first film, but adds a whole new dimension. They’ve grown, and they act like a true family—along with frustrating the heck out of each other.

As always, Marvel circumvents expectations and starts the trailer off with a daunting, epic sequence showing the universe in trouble. It then quickly delves into the most hilarious antics captured in a comic book film. Check out the first official full-length trailer, and don’t be surprised if you catch yourself watching this on repeat:
