Greetings Guardians Family, Ravagers and Space Allies! We hope you receive this transmission:It is with our utmost pleasure that we can say the moment we have all been anxiously waiting for has finally arrived. JAMES GUNN IS BACK BABY! After 9 months of epic battle together, we won! As you all know a few days ago on March 15th, 2019 it was officially reported that the decision to fire James Gunn was reversed. Thanks to all of you and the outpouring support from everyone worldwide. We truly believe we accomplished something extraordinary together and a NEW James Gunn era has begun!

What started out as just speaking out on social media quickly took root in the real world. Through our collective awesomeness of DIY protest projects, artwork, t-shirts, postcards, letters, tweets, the petition, phone calls and our billboards, we showed James our unwavering support in his corner of the galaxy and proved to Disney that were not giving up, EVER! We can not even begin to thank each and everyone of you enough for all the support you have shown during this time. We never stopped fighting or gave up on saving James and the galaxy! We came together from all over the world, connected by him through the love in his stories. We truly transcended all boundaries. We found each other and like a true family we shared our ideas, joys, grief, and success.

To say this all began with 12% of plan really is an understatement, and further proves how much we can accomplish when we let the love that binds us all together lead the way. We came a long way since we were all standing in a circle back then, and it's amazing how many talented and passionate friends we gathered along the way. We admit, it was not easy to get our billboards up and there were a few bumps on our journey. However, through our persistent dedication and love we prevailed, and that made our victory that much sweeter. But none of it would have happened without the support of each and everyone of you who believed in us and more importantly James. For that we are infinitely gratefu. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

As this mission comes to a delightful close, I would like to encourage all of you who supported us along the way to connect with the #GuardiansFamily online, as we take on our next mission which is a celebratory mission! We would like to have as many of us as possible from all over the galaxy gather together to watch the Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol3 when it's released in theaters. In the meantime, we shall continue to show our love and support of James and all his future endeavors, such as the upcoming BrightBurn, The Suicide Squad and of course Avengers Endgame!

Love always wins over hate in the end. We hope our achievement together inspires everyone to continue to open their hearts to others, be open minded, forgive one another and never give up in what you believe in. Thank you and LOVE TO ALL!

We are Groot!The Guardians Family

Season's Greetings Fellow Guardians Family! Id like to start with A huge THANK YOU to everyone that donated and supported this campaign. The first billboard lease closed the Sunday after Thanksgiving (November 25 for all donors outside of USA)... but we aren't finished yet! The new donations received this past month have made it possible to secure a short term lease for the week of Christmas with a holiday theme for our volume 2! Its Launch will be Christmas eve at midnight!

The week of Christmas is the busiest week of the year at Disneyland and the views will be at a maximum. We are confident the holiday billboard will bring some chatter on social media and possibly some press. The location will be the same as the prior billboard at 13541 Newhope St, Garden Grove, CA 92843. As the year comes to a close we are gathering some fresh ideas for 2019, so stay tuned. Now that GOTG Volume 3 is on hold, the fight is far from over.

Please continue to speak out on social media, wear your shirts and post your DIY protest projects. Disney would love for this issue to disappear and we need to keep the narrative active spreading good tidings in this holiday season. Rehire James Gunn is at the top of our wishlist. The Guardians Family proved that James Gunn's stories transcend all boundaries, countries, languages and all walks of life. His stories rooted with love and redemption brought us together and we succeeded because WE ARE GROOT!

We look forward to sharing our new holiday themed design with you all very soon.
Love to All
The Guardians Family

“Showtime a-holes!”

Hello from the Guardians Family to our fellow Ravagers, and all those who support the cause.

Thanks to your support -- and the very “fun” business of signing contracts, false starts, negotiating, scouting, etc. -- A location has been secured, the art has been approved, and our billboard in support of James Gunn has arrived!

Located just a few miles away from Disneyland, we’re aiming for this to be shared on Social Media, and maybe get some press coverage, but we’d also love to see this billboard create a destination for Gunn supporters to visit and maybe grab a photo in front of to post their support. It’s visible off the 22 Eastbound Freeway just before the Harbor Blvd. exit, and is located at the corner of Task & Newhope in Garden Grove, California. If you map it you can get there using the address 13541 Newhope Street, Garden Grove, CA 92843

It’s an exciting time to be a James Gunn fan. With his great new gig at the Distinguished Competition, and the launch of the billboard to show public support for him returning to finish his beloved franchise. Who knows if we can make Disney see the error of its ways and correct this mistake but, like you, we couldn’t stand by and do nothing. At least their competitors seem to know what Disney has lost in letting him go.

In the end this was started by a bunch of passionate fans on a lark, and we have been moved and inspired by the support out there for Gunn. Here’s hoping that this very public display of support moves the needle a bit.

Thank you for backing our play. We are so happy to finally reveal this billboard, and we hope to see some of you out there getting pictures of it in the wild.



Love to all,
The Guardians Family

First off, thank you again to all of our donors. We are so grateful for your support in this effort. This has been a learning experience for all of us in the Guardians Family, and as a bonus we’ve met some amazing people. We have been delighted to bring the Rehire James Gunn movement more press and more Twitter action. Here’s hoping that these efforts bear fruit, and that James Gunn knows that so many people are in his corner of the galaxy.

Now down to business. Our first choice was for a print billboard in Anaheim but unfortunately that choice was booked before we had the necessary funds to secure it. Due to that, we have decided to go with our second choice digital option in Anaheim.

Previous to the digital option in Anaheim we had secured a location in Orlando outside universal studios with a national billboard leasing company. The company backed out of the lease after the contract was signed because they didn't want to have a potential conflict with a current company that leases from them. The company was Disney..

Some are hesitant at this point to risk drawing the ire of a company as large as Disney, and that’s why we feel it’s so important to show large amounts of public support for Gunn. Not only to hopefully give Disney something to think about, but also to show that the decision can be reversed and would be welcomed.

The good news is that, thanks to some more donations, WE HAVE REACHED OUR GOAL FOR OUR FIRST BILLBOARD! We are signing the Anaheim billboard for the busy period between Halloween and Thanksgiving. This means a lot more people will see our message and hopefully join our cause.
With this exciting development, you might be wondering what is next for the Guardians Family. Just like Star Lord, we would LOVE to continue our adventures with VOL.2. For us, this would be a second billboard in the Anaheim/LA area. However, this will require our GoFundMe goal to be increased and more donations to be raised.

We hope that you and others like you feel confident in our just cause. We’re looking for new recruits to help us research new ways to spread our message. We have looked at bus stop benches, wild postings, mobile billboards, and many other marketing ideas. We would love to have your support on our next endeavor, and we hope that you continue to call Disney, send them postcards, emails, and letters, and tweet to Bob Iger, Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios, to show that we support their films and their brand,but we also support James Gunn, and we want him back at the helm of our cinematic universe.

Finally, we want to share our own social media channels and our new beautiful website, where you can find out more about the Guardians Family, James Gunn, and why we’re fighting so hard to get him rehired.

We would love to have you join us as a more active member of the Guardians Family if you are so inclined. We may be a bunch of jackasses standing in a circle having a dance-off, but just like the Guardians of the Galaxy, we’re getting stuff done!

Thanks again for all your support! We couldn’t have done this without you!

Love To All
Guardians Family
