Just when you thought Chris Pratt had cemented his place among the stars as Peter Quill or Star-Lord in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy series, he gave us all a rude shock.
The beloved actor took a break from his galaxy-saving duties to talk about America’s favorite lazy cat, Garfield. So what’s going on behind the scenes in Brad’s career and what can we expect from him when he steps into the Orange Cat’s shoes?
Chris Pratt won hearts around the world as Star Lord, the charismatic leader of the Guardians. With Brad reprising his role in the third and final installment of the Guardians of the Galaxy series, fans hoped it would be a swan song for the team. In fact, the Guardians broke up in the final moments of the film, ending Broad’s tenure as Star Lord.
After the mixed response to “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantummania,” all eyes are on whether the latest Guardians movie will put Marvel on the right ship. The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is now focusing on new storytelling, with “The Marvels” and future Avengers installments in the works. Amid these changes, Brad’s departure seems timely but poignant.
Now, Pratt is ready to do something completely different: voice Garfield in an upcoming film. After the success of his role in “The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” Pratt wanted to delve deeper into the world of animated film. Directed by Samuel L, the film is scheduled for release in 2024. Other actors such as Jackson and Nicholas Hoult will also attend.
On the occasion of National Cat Day, Sony Pictures published a never-before-seen image of Brad Garfield on its social networks @GarfieldMovie. Fans and preview skeptics alike are saying it all, raising expectations for the film’s 2024 release.
Brad’s meeting with Garfield was interesting. We’ve always called Garfield the lasagna-loving, toe-hating cat, but how does Pratt’s signature charm translate to the iconic character? Because of his versatility, Pratt has the opportunity to show another side of his acting prowess and bring something new to the beloved cast.
With roles ranging from dinosaur trainer Wayne Grady in the “Jurassic World” series to Star-Lord in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Pratt has proven that he is no one-trick pony. While we wait for more updates on “The Garfield Movie,” one thing is clear: Chris Pratt is one of the most in-demand actors in Hollywood.
