Princess Twilight Sparkle lives in the beautiful land of Equestria; a land of rainbows and sunshine, and of course, brightly coloured ponies. Everyone is friends in this magical world of fun and frolics, and life seems perfect until the arrival of a dark and dominating force. Tempest Shadow flies into Ponyville during one of their awesome parties and decides that she wants to take over this utopic land with the help of her nefarious assistant Grubber. She's the commander of the Storm King's fleet and more powerful than anyone else in the land, despite having a broken horn, but the Mane 6 are determined not to let her take away their beloved home. Princess Twilight Sparkle bands together with her friends Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, Rarity, and her dragon assistant Spike, to stop Tempest Shadow harming the creatures of Equestria, but she soon realised that Tempest's 'mane' interest is in Twilight's horn. As the Princess of Friendship, Twilight must find a way to extend her love and joy to her biggest threat.

The stars and director of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 talk about the long awaited sequel to the 2014 movie. The much loved ragtag crew consisting of Peter Quill (Star-Lord), Rocket, Groot, Gamora and Drax have just defeated Ronan and stopped the evil villain from using a powerful orb to destroy Xandar, the capital of the Nova Empire. With their criminal records cleared the crew fly off in Quill's spaceship the Milano after he learns that he's only part human and his father is mystery he's still yet to uncover. Equipped with a new mix tape from his mother, the gang are ready to set off on a new adventure.
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 begins with the Guardians being asked by Ayesha, the leader of the Sovereign race, to retrieve a set of incredibly powerful batteries from the grasps of a monster. In return for their work, the crew will be given Gamora's sister, Nebula, who was captured by the Sovereigns when she tried to steal the batteries for herself. Though their mission is successful, the ever naughty Rocket decided to keep a couple of the batteries for himself landing the gang in serious trouble and being chased by Ayesha's army. Luckily for the crew of the Milano, they are saved by Quill's father, Ego, who reveals to Peter that he must've inherited some of his father's immense powers.
Whilst Ego and Peter bond, Rocket and Baby Groot find themselves getting captured and form an unlikely alliance with a familiar face. However, loyalties might not be as clear cut as the crew might've thought and there is imminent danger afoot from all corners of the Galaxy.

It was never going to be easy to match the impact of 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy, which jolted the Marvel franchise to life with its fresh comedy and freewheeling adventure. This sequel is still a lot of fun, but it's also far more controlled, a conventional, plot-based step of the Marvel universe. And all of the characters are angry about everything and everyone. Thankfully, there's also an emotionality that sneaks into the final act.
Now working as a team, the bickering Guardians just manage to complete their latest mission when Rocket (Bradley Cooper) makes an enemy of a tenacious high priestess (Elizabeth Debicki). Her fleet chases them into an encounter with Ego (Kurt Russell), a god-like being who claims to be the father of Guardian leader Peter (Chris Pratt). So Peter takes Gamora and Drax (Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista) to check out Ego's planet, while Rocket and Baby Groot (Vin Diesel) fend off both the priestess and Peter's old mentor Yondu (Michael Rooker), who arrives with a large posse. And then there's Gamora's perpetually furious sister Nebula (Karen Gillan), who's on the rampage, determined to get revenge against everyone who has slighted her.
There's an underlying rage that drives everyone's actions, and the constant screaming matches become exhausting as the film progresses. The worst offender is Rocket, who expresses his perpetual aggravation in a stream of tetchy tirades. Thankfully, the dialogue is sharply written, with wicked insults to keep the audience smirking along. And there's also a nice sense that all of this fury is masking a deeper affection these misfits have for each other, which boils over in some remarkably strong dramatic scenes. Pratt and Russell are both terrific, seizing every chance to play with the comedic and dramatic notes. There are nice moments for Rooker, Saldana and Gillan, plus some witty cameos. And while Baby Groot is almost painfully adorable, it's Bautista's hilariously open-hearted Drax who steals the show.

For now at least...
While 'Guardians of the Galaxy' fans are eagerly anticipating some kind of romantic moment to happen between Peter Quill and Gamora, Zoe Saldana has different ideas about their relationship. According to her, love is the last thing on the cards for her feisty character.
Zoe Saldana at 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' screening
Saving the world brought the Guardians together as friends, as we are about to see in 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2', but it was clear that Chris Pratt's character Peter Quill felt something different for one of his newfound teammates. However, love isn't something that Gamora is all too familiar with; she's already having enough trouble trying to find love for herself after her past wrongdoings.

Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt, Michael Rooker, Pom Klementieff, James Gunn and Dave Bautista at Chris Pratt's Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star Ceremony. Chris Pratt is the latest celebrity to be honoured on the famous strip and he unveiled his Star in front of his friends and family - Hollywood, California, United States - Friday 21st April 2017
Can you guess who our favourite 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' character is?
With 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' well on the way, we order the Guardians of the original movie from best to nearly best before their newest members join the ranks. Of course, Groot has been replaced by Baby Groot, and Yondu Udonta and Nebula are apparently about to join this force for good - though they haven't given us much reason to like them yet. Also, Mantis is another forthcoming addition, who we expect will steal our hearts very soon.
'Guardians of the Galaxy' has some of Marvel's best characters
1. Groot - He's a tree of little words, but he also sacrificed himself to save his friends, most of which he had only known a short time. Also, he becomes Baby Groot after that sacrifice - and he is the character that we're all excited to meet in the forthcoming 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'. Voiced by Vin Diesel, he is the most innocent and the most loving of all the Guardians.

Zen is the actress' third child.
Congratulations are in order for Zoe Saldana and her husband Marco Perego, who have recently announced the birth of their third child and third baby boy. They were spotted whisking their bundle of joy away from Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles early last week.
Zoe Saldana and Marco Perego welcome third baby boy Zen
On Sunday (February 19th 2017), the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' actress unveiled a photo of her 2-year-old twin boys playing alongside a tiny new arrival who was lying on his stomach on a cushion as one of the boys stroked his head. The actress named her newborn Zen; a term associated with peaceful meditation.

Sometimes it takes a good director to bring out the best in an actor.
Zoe Saldana has opened up about her experiences working with Ben Affleck on his latest directorial venture 'Live By Night'; a gangster thriller in which he also stars set in the 1920s; and it's the best performance she reckons she's given in years.

According to Zoe Saldana, not all directors enjoy the process of working with actors. It might sound crazy, but this can really affect how an actor performs on set. Zoe didn't have to worry about that though because Ben Affleck was super understanding - given that he's an actor first.
Lucy Lawless says it's just a rumour, but we can dream.
So, rumours are circulating that a modern reboot of the 90s cult show 'Xena: Warrior Princess' is set to hit screens in the near future. It would be great to see Lucy Lawless back in that badass leather corset but, chances are, if it does ever return, it's likely to have a new wearer. But who should it be?
In a world where feminism has become re-invigorated and strong female role models are being taken seriously in movies and on the small screen, it seems only right that 'Xena: Warrior Princess' be brought back as part of this phenomenon. According to The Hollywood Reporter, original executive producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi are involved in her resurrection (literally) with the series suggested to arrive in 2016 and take on a kind of Katniss Everdeen in 'The Hunger Games' angle. Original star Lucy Lawless is keen to crush our dreams, though, telling Twitter, 'Sorry, friends! news of a #Xena reboot is just a rumor. I'd love it to happen one day but it's still in the wishful thinking stage', but it still got us thinking about who we'd like to see in the role if it ever did come back.

Ellen Degeneres, Neil Patrick Harris and others show their happiness over the news.
All around the world hearts are bursting with victory as marriage equality is held up by law in every single US state. Celebrities have flocked to Twitter in their hundreds to express their support of the news, as the Supreme Court finally rules that same-sex marriage is legal under the Constitution.
Ellen Degeneres Tweeted her support of the marriage equality ruling
It's been a long time coming but the US has finally followed in the footsteps of the UK and Ireland by legalizing same-sex marriage in a move that has touched the hearts of millions. Justice Anthony M. Kennedy revealed the majority opinion was 5 to 4, before sharing his own thoughts on the verdict for those who would be affected. 'Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves', he said. 'Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization's oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.'
