Check out CBR's report from a "Guardians of the Galaxy" roundtable with Chris Pratt, where the star discusses the character of Star-Lord.

"He's very much informed by who he was on Earth," Pratt told reporters. "The arc of the character is very human, it's based on what was taken from him as a kid, something he lacks and has to gain back through the course of the movie. He's like nine or ten when he leaves Earth, so you get to see his origin and why he is like he is."

Plus, here are a few awesome new pictures of Pratt in action as Peter Quill, as well as director James Gunn.
