By Izza Sofia, 28 Sep 2018
Guardians of the Galaxy fans are not giving up without a fight.
A group of fans called ‘Guardians Family’ has gone the extra mile in hopes that director James Gunn will be rehired to direct the third installment of the movie. The ‘Guardians Family’ has set up an account on GoFundMe to raise US$6,000 to create billboards that will encourage Disney to rehire Gunn.
These billboards will be strategically placed outside Disney’s theme parks in Florida as well as California in hopes to “maximize exposure.” It has successfully raised more than US$2,000 so far.
The ad on the page reads, “Purpose: raise money for Rehire James Gunn billboards outside Orlando and Anaheim Disney Parks. Goal: One billboard near each park for at least one month, preferably during the holidays to maximize exposure.”
The group will refund the money back to the contributors if it fails to “raise enough money for at least one billboard for one month.” The GoFundMe campaign joins the petition that has been organized to rehire Gunn. It has garnered over 400,000 signatures.
The future of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 remains bleak as Disney is still scouting for a new director to helm the sequel that will use Gunn’s script.
