Let’s face it, one of the best things about Guardians of the Galaxy (besides the awesome writing of James Gunn) was the soundtrack.
Those awesome seventies songs even spawned a cassette tape (Disney’s first since 2003): Awesome Mix Vol. 1.
Well, Kevin Feige accidentally let the cat out of the bag during an interview, and Gunn later confirmed the title of the next Guardians film:
Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2.

While it doesn’t seem as grand as it could be, you know that the Awesome Mix Vol. 2 that Starlord’s mother gave him before her death will take a shining role in the next film and will, much like the first film, set the tone of the movie.
Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 will released in theaters July 28th, 2017.
