A couple of weeks back, directors James Gunn and Scott Derrickson hinted that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Doctor Strange will be making an appearance during Marvel’s panel at Comic-Con next month. In a new video from the set of the former, Gunn confirms those plans while officially wrapping production with Chris Pratt on the sequel.

In a new video posted to Gunn’s Facebook page, the director honors his Guardians star and friend Chris Pratt as the actor’s time on the sequel gets officially wrapped. Gunn also confirms that “a bunch of the gang” is heading to Comic-Con in July, where they’ll be bringing “something pretty cool” to show fans — likely the first footage or trailer for the highly-anticipated sequel. You can watch the full video below:

Along with Pratt, the sequel features the return of Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Vin Diesel as Groot, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Michael Rooker as Yondu and Sean Gunn as Kraglin. New additions to the galaxy include Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Kurt Russell as Star-Lord’s mysterious dad and Elizabeth Debicki in an unspecified role rumored to be that of Marvel villain Ayesha.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters on May 5, 2017.
