Chris Pratt debuted the first full-length Guardians of the Galaxy trailer Tuesday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Guardians of the Galaxy is the newest Marvel Entertainment venture, coming out on the heels of The Avengers and the successful Thor and Iron Man franchises, to name a few. The film stars Pratt (Parks and Recreation) as Peter Quill, or Star-Lord, as he calls himself, the slightly clueless leader of a ragtag team of intergalactic criminals turned crime fighters who go up against Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace), who does not appear in the trailer.

Pratt leads the star-studded cast, featuring sci-fi queen Zoe Saldana (Avatar, Star Trek) as Gamora, Benicio Del Toro as Taneleer Tivan, aka The Collector, and Vin Diesel, who stars via motion capture, and the voice of Bradley Cooper.

Celebrities were quick to Tweet their excitement for the highly anticipated film, including Scott Porter, who currently stars on The CW’s Hart of Dixie, and Josh Gad (Frozen).

Guardians of the Galaxy will arrive in theaters Aug. 1, 2014, and will surely be Pratt’s second blocbuster of 2014 – he’s currently staring in The Lego Movie.
