KEVIN POLOWY: So you just had, like, 6,000 people bawling, apparently, in Hall H, with this trailer.

CHRIS PRATT: Bawling out. Oh, bawling.

KEVIN POLOWY: No, no, no.

CHRIS PRATT: Yeah.

KEVIN POLOWY: Like, crying like babies, I mean.

CHRIS PRATT: Yeah.

KEVIN POLOWY: Is this a sign of things to come? I mean, should we be-- should we emotionally prepare now for what this movie is gonna do to us?

CHRIS PRATT: No. I wasn't emotionally prepared, when I watched it, and it hit me, just, hard. So don't do any emotional preparation. Just go see it. And you're gonna see what we're talking about. You'll see why people--

KEVIN POLOWY: Yeah.

CHRIS PRATT: --moved. It's, yeah, definitely an emotional--

[MUSIC PLAYING]

It's an emotional moment, certainly, for us, as the actors who are in the piece, watching it for the first time, being reminded of, like, everything we did over the past year plus, making the movie--

KEVIN POLOWY: Yeah.

CHRIS PRATT: --and then being out at Hall H, in front of all these fans, for the first time in several years, and understanding that this is, kind of, like, the end of this trilogy.

KEVIN POLOWY: Yeah.

CHRIS PRATT: It's all emotional.

KEVIN POLOWY: There were tears in that room, after what you guys just showed.

JAMES GUNN: Yeah, I just read Kevin Smith's tweet, saying he bawled.

KEVIN POLOWY: Is this, I mean--

JAMES GUNN: He's an easy-- he's an easy target. I got to admit. That Kevin, he cries a lot. But he's--

KEVIN POLOWY: [LAUGHS] He does. He does, actually.

JAMES GUNN: He's the best.

KEVIN POLOWY: He does, actually. Yeah.

JAMES GUNN: But he said, and that's not tears. He said, bawl. He bawled.

KEVIN POLOWY: He bawled, yeah.

JAMES GUNN: He sobbed like a baby.

[MUSIC PLAYING]

KAREN GILLAN: I haven't seen the movie, but they just showed us the trailer for the first time. They were playing it for everybody in Hall H, and they played it, backstage, on the screen, for us. And we had not seen it before, and we all just started fully crying.

KEVIN POLOWY: Yeah.

KAREN GILLAN: Like, it's such an emotional, beautiful trailer, and it's such a beautiful story. And it's also, kind of, the end of an era for us. And so, it's, like, so emotional. And then they, like, threw us on stage.

KEVIN POLOWY: [LAUGHS]

KAREN GILLAN: And we were, like, fully crying. And then everyone in the room is cry-- it was a really emotional experience.

KEVIN POLOWY: Should we prepare ourselves? Is this gonna be, like, an abnormally emotional Marvel movie?

[MUSIC PLAYING]

POM KLEMENTIEFF: This script is incredible. I'm so grateful for James, for writing this beautiful, beautiful script. I feel so, so lucky, to get to work with these incredible actors and to care so deeply about them in real life. And I care so much about the characters, as well.

KEVIN POLOWY: Mm-hmm.

POM KLEMENTIEFF: I saw the teaser trailer for the first time, today. And I was, like, almost, like, crying, backstage and then on stage. And, you know, I can't get over it, you know.

KEVIN POLOWY: Right.

POM KLEMENTIEFF: And I want to watch it again. [LAUGHS]

WILL POULTER: Dude, I'm not prepared for it. I gotta tell you, I wasn't ready for that. But I think this will be the most emotional "Guardians," yeah, for sure.

KEVIN POLOWY: Have you felt that, on set, that this is going to be, sort of, like, an abnormally emotional [LAUGHS] MCU adventure?

SEAN GUNN: Yes, I did. I felt it. I kind of felt it from the beginning. We spent a lot of months making this movie. And there was always something about it that was like it felt a little different. The movie's--

[BACKGROUND CHATTER]

The movie, there's a sadness in the movie. And there's an element to it that is the culmination of this storytelling trilogy--

KEVIN POLOWY: Mm.

SEAN GUNN: --that I'm very, very proud of. I think it's truthful, which is the most important thing--

KEVIN POLOWY: Mm-hmm.

SEAN GUNN: --and that audiences, hopefully, will respond to it.

JAMES GUNN: It's about the emotions. It's about the characters, and their journeys, and how they're uncovering truths about themselves. And it's not what people expect. Nothing is neat. Nothing's tied up with a bow, but it is the end of the story for these characters.

KAREN GILLAN: It definitely feels like the end of this particular era.

KEVIN POLOWY: Mm-hmm.

KAREN GILLAN: Whatever happens, going forward, I don't know if it would ever be specifically this again.

KEVIN POLOWY: Yeah.

[BACKGROUND CHATTER]

KAREN GILLAN: And so there's definitely, like, a finality to the whole thing--

KEVIN POLOWY: Mm-hmm.

[MUSIC PLAYING]

KAREN GILLAN: --which is just, like, something none of us are coping with. And I'm just going into denial.

JAMES GUNN: It was the last day of shooting. It was very emotional. And then, up here, on stage, it was emotional because I know we're never gonna sit-- stand up there together, as a family, in front of Comic-Con, most likely, ever.
