Spoilers ahead for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Arguably the biggest theme throughout the entirety of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was family. Nearly every character involved in the movie underwent various stages of growth both personally and in their relationships with those close to them.
With the main story arc of Vol. 2 involving Peter Quill’s (Chris Pratt) need to find his father, Ego (Kurt Russell), movie-goers were shocked to find that his father turned out to be the movie’s main antagonist.
Unbeknownst to Yondu — who has been hired by Ego to retrieve Peter from Earth — Ego had planned to use Peter’s powers to essentially cover every planet in the universe with his own organic material. Eventually, Yondu found out Ego’s True intentions and ultimately decided to raise Peter himself.
Towards the end of Vol. 2, Peter makes the realization that a dad isn’t necessarily always your biological father. In this case, Yondu ended up making the ultimate sacrifice so that Peter could live. Except Vol. 2 director James Gunn wasn’t always sure that the ending would have ended on that big of a heart breaker.
