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.
|Lady on the bus next to me:||Tell me again- what are you not going to do in daycare today?|
|Little boy:||I will not hit the teacher with a light saber.|
|Lady:||And why are you not going to hit her with a light saber?|
|Boy:||It is my toy, and my choice, but if I hit her with the light saber, I'm acting like a Sith.|
|Lady:||Do you want to be a Sith?|
|Boy:||No! I am Obi-Wan!|
