The Vyloos were seen in Marvel Studios' 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2!'

Taneleer Tivan is expanding his collection of rare items from across the galaxy with three new acquisitions. These Vyloos, native to the planet Berhert, may look familiar to Terrans who have seen the film, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.”

Guests visiting The Collector’s Fortress at Disney California Adventure park will find these little birds to be very responsive, friendly and outgoing – responding to noises and movement – but they can also suddenly become extremely shy and introverted.

Vyloos are the latest addition to Taneleer Tivan’s collection at Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! at Disney California Adventure park

They may look adorable, but beware! These little birds have been known to defend themselves when threatened, so the Tivan Group has assured us that they will be kept fully enclosed in their glass display case at all times. As long as the fortress power source remains operational, they will be safely contained.

The Collector invites you to come see these new acquisitions for yourself, on display beginning this week at Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! at Disney California Adventure park!

Own 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' on Digital, Blu-ray, and 4K UHD now!

On a recent Facebook Live, writer and director James Gunn stopped by Facebook Los Angeles to celebrate the release of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” on Blu Ray, DVD, and 4K UHD.  While in the studio, Gunn revealed some interesting facts to excited fans! Watch the Facebook Live below:

James Gunn, writer and director of #GotGVol2, is LIVE on Facebook!Marvel Studios' "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" is now available on Blu-ray, Digital, and 4K UHD: http://bit.ly/GOTG2GetItNow

Posted by Guardians of the Galaxy on Tuesday, August 22, 2017

One of the most hilarious scenes at the end of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” was when Peter Quill was presented with a Zune, a post-mortem gift from Yondu. Gunn revealed that just as Peter’s mother Meredith communicated with him through her mixed tapes, Yondu will be communicating with Peter through the Zune playlist. What genre of music was Yondu’s favorite? We’ll have to wait and see.

Easter eggs are a huge part of the “Guardians” films; while Gunn refused to completely reveal the most hidden Easter egg from the first “Guardians of the Galaxy,” he did say that a few fans had gotten close to figuring it out. Gunn also teased that there’s an extremely difficult to find Easter egg in Vol. 2 that has yet to be found. Good luck, fans!

David Bowie’s music was a major part of the 1970’s soundtrack that was so prevalent in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” so it makes sense that Gunn was in talks with Bowie’s people about a possible guest appearance as a Ravager in the film. Sadly, Bowie passed away before it could happen. Ziggy Stardust, we will see you in the stars.
