James Gunn has dropped the first teaser poster for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2—and not only does it give us our first “official” look beyond concept art of just how adorable baby Groot is, it gives us our first good look at the new incarnation of the team.


Gunn posted the new teaser to his social media accounts, which you can see in full below.

Just how goddamn cute is little baby Groot? (He’s clutching Star-Lord’s boot, if you didn’t spot him at first.)

While the teaser poster doesn’t tell us much, it does seemingly confirm what the first concept art teased, and something that was rumored for many months—Karen Gillan’s Nebula and Michael Rooker’s Yondu are now part of the team.

Not seen just yet? Pom Klementieff’s Mantis, who we definitely know is a new member of the Guardians. But it might not be much longer before we see her, or more from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2—a teaser for the film was recently classified, indicating it could be on the way very soon.


UPDATE 12:15PM EST: Well, very soon was much sooner than we imagined—the first teaser trailer is here!


James is a News Editor at io9, where you can find him delivering your morning spoilers, writing about superheroes, and having many feelings about Star Wars. He wants pictures. Pictures of Spider-Man!

Awww, no Mantis.

I can understand why Rocket and Groot look... digitally painted, but why Gamora? Is it just me or does she look a bit blurry?
