Amazon's The Tomorrow War was released back in July, and follows a group of soldiers and civilians who are sent into the future to fight an alien army.

Soon after its release, it emerged that a sequel was already in the works, with Pratt expected to reprise his role as Dan Forester Jr and director Chris McKay also returning.

Pratt previously spoke to Digital Spy about choosing the project, admitting he was drawn to it because it wasn't based on existing IP.

"To step in and do something that's completely original based simply on an amazing script from the imagination of a wonderful screenwriter – I was really grateful to be in a position where I could, you know, join up with the studio and say, 'Hey, are you willing to write a cheque for this big of a movie? With no guarantee that people are gonna watch it?'," he said.

In Digital Spy's three star review of the movie, we wrote: "It should be celebrated that The Tomorrow War is an original offering in a summer blockbuster season that is otherwise full of sequels and movies based on existing IP.

"Given it was originally set for a cinema release, the scale is impressive and it's a testament to its strongest moments that you'll wish you could have seen it on the big screen.

"The Tomorrow War might not totally get everything right, especially with its pacing, but it's a thrilling sci-fi adventure all the same."

The Tomorrow War is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
