Chris Pratt worked with Marvel and Children’s Miracle Network Hospital to arrange a special screening of Guardians of the Galaxy for patients, families and staff at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Wednesday. While the movie played, Pratt snuck out and dressed up as his character, Star-Lord. He spent more than three hours in full costume and handed out movie-themed toys. Pratt also visited patients in the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit, the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases, and the Pediatric ICU, as they were too sick to join the movie screening that afternoon.
Pratt spent extra time with one patient, Dylan Prunty, who is a longtime Lego fan and recognized the actor’s voice from The Lego Movie. They spent about 10 minutes reciting different scenes from the film.
Remember this is exactly what Chris Pratt said he wanted to be able to do after guardians
Akira Toriyama is one Japan’s most beloved manga creators. After stints in advertising and motorcycle repair, he entered the serialized manga scene with his first story about a super-strong girl robot in Dr. Slump. However, it wouldn’t be until 1984 when his most world-renown creation, Dragonball, would scream onto the stage to instant popularity. The massive series ran for 11 years and became one of the world’s most popular manga and anime series of all time. He would also find acclaim designing characters for video games, most notably RPGs Dragon Quest and Chrono Trigger.
