One of my favorite movies of 2014 is James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Loaded with great performances, an extremely funny script, and some fantastic action sequences, the movie blew past everyone’s expectations to become one of the most popular movies of 2014. As most of you know, the story follows five intergalactic misfits—Peter Quill aka Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), and Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper)—as they set out to protect a powerful and mysterious orb from the villainous Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace).

With Guardians of the Galaxy arriving on Blu-ray/DVD December 9th (click here to pre-oder on Amazon), a few days ago I landed an exclusive video interview with James Gunn. He talked about if he’d ever screen an extended cut and how the deleted scenes fit into the movie, holding back deleted scenes for the eventual Phase 2 Blu-ray box set, Easter eggs in the background of The Collector’s lair, Adam Warlock’s cocoon, where he is in the writing process on Guardians of the Galaxy 2, if he’ll include Adam Warlock, new characters, the title, and so much more. Hit the jump to watch.
