In newly released Guardians of the Galaxy press notes, actor Chris Pratt talked a little bit about Starlord and his backstory. “He’s very much a kid at heart. He’s never known his father, he’s sucked away into space just as his mother dies and is raised by a blue-skinned humanoid. He has spent all his life being told to toughen up and has a false sense of bravado as a result. But deep down he is lonely, and while he’s a guy traveling in space getting to do whatever he wants, he misses his family, his community, and through the course of the story he learns to care again and that there’s more to life than just taking and doing exactly what you want.”
Also, describing Starlord's connection to Yondu, Michael Rooker said, “It’s a beautiful story, a great uplifting story and I found the relationship between Quill and Yondu intriguing. He went to pick him up from Earth and for some reason he decided not to take him where he was meant to go and raised him himself. He made a connection with him, and Yondu now enjoys the fact that Quill has the courage to do his own thing.”
Our previous theories that Yondu took Peter Quill into space have turned out to be correct. What do you think of this? Drop us a comment below. Thanks to Comic Book Movie for the info.
