    The Guardians of the Galaxy, Peter Quill aka "Star-Lord", Gamora, Drax, Rocket Raccoon, and Baby Groot are renowned as heroes after defeating Ronan the Accuser on Xandar. They accept a job from High Priestess Ayesha, leader of the xenophobic, gold-skinned Sovereign, to defend valuable batteries from an inter-dimensional monster in exchange for Nebula, whom the Sovereign captured following the Battle of Xandar. Rocket steals several of the Anulax Batteries for himself, and when the Sovereign discover this, they attack the Guardians' ship, the Milano, with their own fleet of Golden Drones. The Milano is heavily damaged and forced to crash-land on a nearby planet, but the Sovereign fleet is single-handedly destroyed by Ego, who reveals himself as Quill’s father. Ego invites Peter to return to his home, accompanied by Gamora and Drax. Rocket and Groot remain to repair the Milano and guard Nebula.

    Ayesha hires Yondu Udonta, who has been exiled from the greater Ravager community for trafficking children by Stakar Ogord to recapture the Guardians. Yondu’s crew track down the Milano and capture Rocket, but when Yondu shows reluctance to turn Peter over to the Sovereign, Ravager Taserface leads a mutiny with help from Nebula, who tricked Groot into freeing her. Peter, Gamora, Drax and Ego, along with Ego’s empathic assistant Mantis, travel to Ego’s home, a living planet that is an extension of his body. Ego explains that he is a god-like being called a Celestial, who created a humanoid avatar to travel the galaxy and interact with other species. Peter soon learns he can access and manipulate the power within Ego’s planet. Drax becomes friendly with Mantis, who wants to reveal a secret about Ego.

    Taserface imprisons Rocket and Yondu aboard their ship the Eclector and turns Groot into a mascot for the crew, while Nebula takes a ship and leaves, planning to track down and kill Gamora, blaming her for the torturous cybernetic enhancements inflicted by her father Thanos. In their imprisonment, Rocket and Yondu discover they are very alike, and Yondu shares his low opinion of Ego, who originally hired Yondu's Ravagers to deliver Peter after his mother’s death. Groot attempts to steal a new control fin for his Yaka Arrow to aid an escape attempt, and is helped by Kraglin Obfonteri, a Ravager loyal to Yondu. Together, Rocket, Groot, Yondu and Kraglin escape in a detachable section, and engage in a risky space maneuver to reach Ego’s planet in time to help Peter and the others. Taserface alerts the Sovereign of the escape, before Yondu kills him and the others Ravager mutiny.

    Nebula arrives at Ego's planet and tries to kill Gamora. Gamora survives and reaches an uneasy truce, and together, she and Nebula explore the caverns beneath Ego's planet and discover hundreds of skeletal remains. Ego reveals his master plan to Peter, he traveled the universe and planted seedlings on thousands of worlds that would terraform them into new extensions of Ego, but he needed a second Celestial’s power to activate the seedlings, so he conceived children with hundreds of women all across the galaxy and hired Yondu to collect them. Every other child was killed when they proved unable to access Celestial power, but Peter can harness the power, and Ego uses him to activate all the seedlings, which begin their terraforming that will eventually consume every world and every person. Peter is hypnotized by Ego’s power until Ego reveals he deliberately caused the death of Meredith Quill's mother, prompting Peter to fight back.

    Mantis informs Gamora, Drax and Nebula of Ego's plan just as Rocket, Groot, Yondu and Kraglin arrive. Reunited, the Guardians fight their way through a fleet of Sovereign drones, as well as Ego himself, to reach the core of Ego’s planet where a thick shell protects Ego’s brain. Groot plants a bomb made from the stolen Sovereign batteries on Ego’s brain, and most of the Guardians escape while Peter remains to battle his father using his access to Ego’s celestial power. When the bomb explodes, Ego dies and the planet collapses, but Yondu sacrifices himself to save Peter. Later, Nebula reconciles with Gamora, but chooses to leave anyway.
