The Guardians struggle to keep together as a team while dealing with their personal family issues, notably Star-Lord's encounter with his father the ambitious celestial being Ego.

When director James Gunn was writing the script for the movie and proposed the idea of Ego the Living Planet being Star-Lord's father, Marvel told him that they did not have the rights to the character. The rights belonged to 20th Century Fox because of his ties to the Fantastic Four and Silver Surfer franchises. Since Gunn had no other characters in mind for Star-Lord's father, he had to ask Fox if he could use the character. Fortunately, Fox agreed to let Marvel have Ego, in return for Fox gaining more creative freedom over Negasonic Teenage Warhead's set of superpowers in Deadpool (2016).

(at around 46 mins) Ego tells Quill that he wanted to experience what it was to be human-- but at the point in time he's describing, he had not yet encountered any other life. (In point of fact, humans aren't even the first species he discovers or mates with). However, at that time, Ego was trying to gain Quill's empathy before telling him the truth - he used "humans" since his son was half human, but was lying.
