    Well he already saved the world once, so now he needs to save the Galaxy

  3. Drew says:

    No! Terry McGinnis is going over to the dark side!

  4. Kat says:

    I like him but can’t see him as Starlord!!! I hope this doesn’t mean there won’t be more Guardian movies!!

  5. Will says:

    Why can’t Chris Pratt just do the voice? I mean, yes he’s busy doing film but honestly voice over work – you walk in, do your thing, walk out.

    • Joey says:

      Because voice acting isn’t just something you walk in, do, and be done with. It takes hours and hours each day. It also doesn’t help that Chris Pratt is now a big star, and thus requires big pay, something no cartoon would ever pay, even if the cartoon is produced by Disney.

      • Emma says:

        Since when Chris P. is a big star now? Just because he was in one successful movie last summer does not make him a big star for one movie.. He is just more famous and popular now cause he now rubs elbows with A listers and attend more Hollywood parties than before and starred in that one successful movie but big star? I have my doubts. Before Galaxy he was not that popular and rarely mentioned like he was this huge star. He was just an actor or a comedic actor.

        • Kristina says:

          Wasn’t he on Parks and Recreation?

        • nerdrage says:

          Yeah he’s a big ole frakkin star. Hollywood is full of weenie metrosexuals so whenever some guy who is the least bit masculine hits big, they freak out and shove everything at him. He’s in Jurassic Park, he’s in Magnificent 7, he’ll probably be Indiana Jones. The other guy like that is Oscar Isaac.

          • Sonia says:

            Not all Hollywood actors are like you described do not generalize. There are still masculine guys. But if it was not for Galaxu Chris wont be that popular now. He was a comedic actor. Be honest he became famous for the GGalaxy movies, before that I did not even know who that guy was or what he starred before.,

      • PFFFF. Michael Clarke Duncan voiced Kingpin on the MTV Spider-Man toon.

  6. Roger says:

    From being Bruce Wayne’s son and heir to the Mantle of the Bat to Star-Lord. Cool. Cool, cool cool.

  7. Joey Padron says:

    Good news Will be voicing the character. Can’t wait to see him on Girl Meets World!

  8. Lauren says:

    Good grief he is aging fantastically!

  9. Stephon J.S says:

    Man this is too kewl. Will does great voice work

  10. “The Boy Meets World alum has been tapped to voice Star-Lord” who?
