The story of Star-Lord and Gamora is just a side story

Conclusion of the movie Guardians of the Galaxy 3

Guardians of the Galaxy has always embodied the idea of ​​family being something to choose from, not just blood related families. In the end, James Gunn came to the conclusion that the family continued to grow and change and that this was not the problem.
