Even if you weren’t super familiar with “Guardians of the Galaxy” before its release (we have a chart for that, if that’s you) we’re pretty sure you have a new favorite talking, machine gun-wielding raccoon in your life: Rocket.
Voiced by Bradley Cooper, the little rodent travels space being generally badass and helping Chris Pratt’s Peter Quill and his fellow Guardians. And guess what? Even Pratt told MTV News that Rocket is the bomb.
“I think there are going to be a lot of people dressed up as Rocket this Halloween, a lot of kids,” Pratt said.
“This is CG unlike anything that I’ve ever seen before, it’s so real,” he continued. “This thing, as funny as it is to have a little talking raccoon with a machine gun running around being an a-hole, what really carries you through is the dramatic reality that there’s nothing else in the universe like him.”

“Guardians of the Galaxy” is in theaters now.
