Eternals: How are the Guardians of the Galaxy connected to the Eternals? | Films | Entertainment

Later this year Eternals will introduce three new races of people to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU): The Eternals, the Celestials and the Deviants. While the Eternals and the Deviants are brand new in the MCU, the Celestials have been around for a while.

How are the Eternals connected to the Guardians of the Galaxy?

The trailer for Disney’s new film revealed the Eternals were created by the Celestials – a race of space beings who are older and more powerful than anything in the universe.

The Celestials were previously spotted for the first time in the 2014 film Guardians of the Galaxy, however.

The creature was spotted when the Guardians, led by Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), ventured to the planet of Knowhere.

Knowhere became known as a recluse for space brigands looking to buy, sell, and hang out.

Upon approaching the planet Gamora (Zoe Saldana) explained the planet was built out of the severed head of a Celestial.

In the comic book source material, the head is also being mined for the brain matter and bones of the creature.

Marvel viewers have met a living Celestial during the course of the MCU, however.

Ego also tried to extend his lifespan by having children with the inhabitants of various planets.

This is eventually what led to the birth of Peter Quill on Earth, making him half-Celestial.

However, once Peter killed Ego, the Celestial side of his lineage was destroyed.

The Eternals are presumably similar to Peter Quill.

The Eternals were created by the Celestials and were placed on Earth to protect all of humanity.

If the Eternals ever meet Peter Quill, they may find some sort of connection with one another.

Eternals hits cinemas on October 28, 2021.

The Guardians of the Galaxy films are available on Disney Plus now.
