GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 (2017): Vin Diesel Discusses Baby Groot

Vin Diesel Talks About Baby Groot’s Role In Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 voice actor Vin Diesel touched upon the role of Baby Groot in the Marvel science fiction sequel.

Seen towards the very end of the previous Guardians of the Galaxy film, Baby Groot is set to appear in much of Vol. 2. As Diesel explains, the character will undergo a very different story arc this time around:
Talking to Collider, voice actor Vin Diesel shed some light on how the two Groots differ. “Yeah, there is a difference. He couldn’t be more naive as Baby Groot. I always think of the Groot that we saw on the first Guardians as a college-level Groot, so he’s not fully grown yet, but he’s a man. And once he sacrifices himself at the end of the movie, now he has to start all over, so to speak, but we’re gonna see this goofy, adorable, baby Groot thing running around the screen and just learning as he goes.” 
It sounds like he’ll be stealing the show all over again in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 then, and much of that will no doubt be down to Diesel’s performance. However, if you’re not convinced that he’s committed to the role, the Fast and Furious star recorded Groot’s lines in 16 languages for the sequel!

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
