Guardians of the Galaxy 3 receives an award for exposing animal suffering

The film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 has been praised by the American animal rights organization PETA, because of the way in which the past of one of the characters refers to the violence suffered by animals.

In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 , the viewer learns about Rocket Raccoon’s dark past. During flashback scenes, we learn that the character, a raccoon, and his friends have suffered a lot of violence and torture from the big bad, the Master of Evolution.

Scenes that instantly make you think of the violence that animals suffer in everyday life. A strong and political remark hailed by the American association for the defense of animals PETA (equivalent to our SPA) which qualified Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 for ‘ best animal rights film of the year ‘, adding that James Gunn’s film has ‘ helped audiences see animals as individuals and suggesting that it’s not because we can experiment on them as we should ”.

James Gunn is no stranger to the animal cause, which he ardently defends on a daily basis. The American director has finally seized the opportunity to be able to evoke this terrible observation in one of his films, a blockbuster moreover. For this, he was awarded the Not a Number award by PETA.

» Thanks to Rocket [le nom du raccoon, ndlr], James Gunn has put a face, a name and a personality on the millions of vulnerable animals that are passing through laboratories at this very moment», rejoiced the vice — PETA President Lisa Lange.

PETA highlights in particular the relevance with which animal violence is approached , such as the presence of the tattoo of Rocket and his friends, which refers to the digital marks given to laboratory animals.

The conditions of detention in captivity of Rocket and his friends are particularly representative of the real and painful conditions of the animals, which are, in the vast majority of cases, killed after the experiments they have undergone.

At the end of the film, Rocket confronts the scientist who put him through all this abuse in order to prevent other animals from suffering the same fate. The film reminds “ viewers that all animals deserve a life of freedom in the open air rather than confined in laboratory cages ”, punctuates PETA.
