Count Chris Pratt among those who are excited to see James Gunn returning to direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. People spoke with Pratt at the Avengers: Endgame premiere on Monday and asked about Gunn being reinstated as the director last month.

“I was so thrilled, so excited,” Pratt said. “I think it’s the right move, I really stand behind it. I’m really proud of Disney for hiring James back and ultimately thrilled for not only us, but also for the fans. I think it’s going to wrap up the trilogy in the best way.”

Gunn was initially fired in July of last year after old offensive tweets of his were unearthed from several years ago. The cast was open about their desire for Gunn to be reinstated, issuing a statement as a group calling for his reinstatement in July.

Gunn will direct the film once he is finished with The Suicide Squad for DC.
