"Don’t you disrespect me, little man! Don’t you derogate or deride! You’re in my world now, not your world; and I got friends on the other side…"
Actor Chris Pratt beamed down to our sector of the universe Monday night to surprise an auditorium full of deserving kids in a special New York Daily News and Disney Studios sponsored charity screening of the superheroes-in-space flick.
