Guardians Of The Galaxy 3 Full Movie Storyline :
The Guardians of the Galaxy are attacked at their new headquarters on Knowhere by Adam, a warrior created by Ayesha, the Sovereign’s high priestess. Rocket is severely injured and unable to heal due to a kill switch implanted in him by Orgocorp, led by the mad scientist and Rocket’s creator, the High Evolutionary. In order to save Rocket’s life, the Guardians travel to Orgocorp headquarters to find the switch’s override code.
Meanwhile, Rocket reminisces about him as an experienced baby raccoon, along with his friends Lylla, Teefs, and Floor. High Evolutionary planned to use Rocket’s intelligence to create an ideal society called Counter-Earth, but ended up wanting to harvest Rocket’s brain and eliminate Rocket’s friends. Rocket fought back, but his friends were killed and he escaped into space.
With the help of an alternate version of Gamora and the Ravagers, the Guardians infiltrate Orgocorp and discover that the override code has been removed. They travel to Counter-Earth, followed by Ayesha and Adam, to find Theel, a former advisor to the High Evolutionary. They arrive at Arête Laboratories, where they confront the High Evolutionary and learn of his disappointment with his creations. Counter-Earth is destroyed and the Guardians manage to rescue Rocket by disabling the kill switch.
The team faces various challenges, including battles, riots, and the rescue of genetically modified children. Kraglin shoots Arête, dooming the ship but saving Knowhere. The Guardians eventually rescue the imprisoned children, animals, and creatures. Quill decides to leave the Guardians and appoints Rocket as the new captain. In a mid-credits scene, the new Guardians embark on a new mission with Rocket, Groot, Kraglin, Cosmo, Adam, Phyla, and Adam’s pet Blurp.
