The third instalment of Guardians of the Galaxy has turned out to be the most sentimental of the three. The story of Rocket might yet have a happy conclusion, though. The Guardians of the Galaxy films have an emotional impact that is far greater than any other trilogy in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was immediately apparent from the first piece that while being amusing, these individuals needed one another since their tales were nothing short of terrible. But they discovered that they could overcome anything as a team when they formed a family among themselves. With a plot that takes its protagonists, particularly Rocket Raccoon, to the most sinister parts of their past, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will now push that idea to its breaking point. But just because his narrative is tragic doesn’t mean that’s how it has to finish. Even if he won’t admit it, Rocket among the Guardians might be one of the most valiant. That renders a sacrifice for a character who has already shown he would die for his family too cliché.
James Gunn Claims That:
The narrative of Rocket in this movie will demonstrate why he is in fact the galaxy’s most depressed being. To accomplish this, the movie delves into Rocket’s beginnings with the High Evolutionary and how he kidnapped Rocket as a baby and transformed him into the snarky hero he is today. The fact that his life didn’t get much better even when he was a Guardian makes the situation much more terrible. Rocket has lost more than most people in the galaxy, going from mercenary to the last Guardian still alive, and it’s just made him value what he has more. Rocket has to release Yondu in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in order for Peter Quill to survive the abolition of Ego. He soon lost the Guardians to the Snap and since since hasn’t taken anything he’s accomplished for granted. Now that this incarnation of the Guardians has come to an end with the last instalment of the trilogy, it is likely that Rocket’s story will conclude on a bittersweet but not catastrophic note. In fact, he might even enjoy the retirement he deserves.
Using Rocket’s Past as a Starting Point:
Although it hasn’t been confirmed, audiences may visit Halfworld, where Rocket calls home, a weird location full of sentient robots and clever humanoid species. Rocket was a liberation fighter in the comic books who joined forces with other animals to save his people from an oppressive leader. The High Evolutionary could be defeated in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 by doing the same. But more crucially, Rocket might be able to find Lylla, his long-lost love.
In the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie, an otter named Lylla was briefly mentioned as a known associate of Rocket, but she hasn’t been mentioned since. She acted as Rocket’s soul partner in the comics and supported him in his conflicts on Halfworld. Now would be a fantastic time for Lylla to make a comeback and give Rocket a happy ending where he and his race would be free from their oppressor and live peacefully on Halfworld, especially since many Guardians are probably leaving the squad. Additionally, given all the sacrifices Rocket has made over the years, a happy ending in which he actually gains something would be a fitting conclusion to his tale.
