Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy are back with a brand new trailer and it looks like it's going to be everything we're hoping for.

If the first poster from the movie - which director James Gunn has shared on social media - wasn't enough to get you excited, you just wait.

Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel and the rest of the gang are all back in Volume 2, which picks up just two months after 2014's original Guardians left off.

And while you may be thinking the minute and a half trailer doesn't show much - apart from an adorable blossoming bromance - here are some things you might have missed:

Baby Groot is here!

You heard right. After Vin Diesel's tree creature character got into some trouble in the original film, he came back as a re-planted baby.

He made an appearance at the end of Guardians Vol 1 and fans instantly fell in love, so they certainly did not miss his appearance in this trailer - no matter how fleeting.

The soundtrack is back too

One of Guardians' greatest assets was its classic rock soundtrack which was delivered to audiences via Starlord's mixtape.

So it's little surprise one of the anthems from the first film, Hooked on a Feeling was brought back to welcome our heroes back to our screens.

In the last film, Starlord aka Peter Quill (played by Chris Pratt) discovered a brand new mixtape which suggests a similarly awesome soundtrack will accompany the sequel.

Obviously

Remember when the first Guardians came out? Its tagline was: "You're welcome".

This time, the poster boasts the tagline: "Obviously".

Presumably because after the success of the first one, they'd have to be stupid not to do a sequel.

Trouble in Paradise

The only plot point this trailer did give us is that Starlord's in a bit of romantic trouble with Gamora (Saldana).

Drax tells him: "There are two types of people in the universe. Those who dance and those who do not".

To which Starlord responds: "I am a dancer; Gamora is not."

So clearly there's trouble between the pair, but on the plus side, we get Drax and Starlord's budding romance and also, this pearl of wisdom: "You just need to find a woman who is pathetic, like you."

Vin Diesel loves it

In a new video posted on Youtube, director James Gunn shows a very excited Vin Diesel some footage of the new Guardians film and his response is speechless:

"Oh my god, you won't believe this guys. Oh my god, oh my god guys... just hang on a second, I need a minute."
