This movie is about Rocket, a character from the movie series Guardians of the Galaxy, and the importance of batteries in the movie. Rocket is the secret protagonist of the movie and steals batteries he doesn’t need, which kicks off the plot and reveals more about the Celestials and their bloodlines. We learn that Anulax batteries are the most powerful and valuable form of energy in the universe, and they could be Celestial-derived. The music in the movie comes from a diegetic source, and dancing is an important theme. We also learn that bloodlines are only as useful as an electrical circuit to a battery.
In the scene from the movie Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Peter Quill flirts with Gamora and is interrupted by Drax, who is nearly invisible due to his ability to stand very still. Rocket then steals batteries from the Sovereign Fleet, citing altruism as his motivation, although he was likely going to steal them anyway. The batteries are eventually used to destroy a Celestial bloodline, demonstrating egoism as a concept. The crew then has to pilot their quantum asteroid field, and Drax states that he would have to be the greatest pilot in the universe to do so.
James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy films introduce us to the Universal Neural Transportation Network, Rocket, and the jump point, a hexagonal wormhole. They also show us the atmosphere of Bernhard and Mork’s egg-shaped spaceship from Mork and Mindy. Reproductive imagery is present throughout the movie, and Drax is briefly seen burning in the atmospheric friction.
In the scene, the Milano violently crashes and stops, with the forest remaining still, but only when its wing falls off, and birds stir from the bushes. Yondu is seen in a brothel, with a painting of Wall Russ in the background, and Staccara O’Gord appears, talking about a plan to steal the battery from the Guardians. This suggests that Rocket’s choice to steal the batteries may have been part of a mission to foil another Celestial-linked plot involving his old girlfriend Lila.
In another scene, Ego and Peter talk about why Yondu kept Peter as a child, as it made it easier for him to squeeze into places adults couldn’t. This sets up the same thing Rocket will use for Groot in the film: a skinny kid who can squeeze into places adults can’t. Elita O’Gord, played by Michelle Yeoh, is also mentioned, as in the comics, she and Dakar merged their bodies to become Starhawk Stakar. The scene also establishes that even the worst pirates refuse to break the “no child trafficking” rule, making Ego’s countless violations of this unforgivable.
After the Guardians of the Galaxy holiday special confirms that Mantis is also Ego’s offspring, Rocket spends much time encoding Milano’s exact layout to keep the family together. Peter chooses his biological family over his found family, and they hear Fleetwood Mac’s The Chain, one of the all-time best break-up songs. Ego is a Celestial who is seeking a loophole to reproduce, and Nebula refers to a comic in which Thanos pits his two daughters against each other in a twisted game of life and death.
The film showcases how the characters have a form of body dysmorphia, which is reflected in their superficial judgments of each other’s looks. It also shows how the broken toys theme is prevalent in this movie, as characters like Rocket are looking for parts to fulfill their own resentments towards their existence. Finally, it shows how Groot is exploited for his size and how this leaves him with self-consciousness, which leads to him becoming “swole” Groot later in life.
