James Gunn recently took to Facebook to hilariously answer some frequently asked questions about his upcoming sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy. The most informative aspects, being questions relating to baby Groot.
First of all, he reassures the reader that Vin Diesel will be returning to voice baby Groot, teasing something along the lines of Carol Channing. When answering the question of wether baby Groot is like Groot’s son he simple said;
Okay, I guess we’ll find out what that’s all about soon enough. The most interesting point, however, came just after that, when Gunn revealed that baby Groot doesn’t have Groot’s memories.
That’s kind of a game changer, from a story telling perspective at least. It’ll be interesting to see how baby Groot interacts differently with the group and whether or not he’ll still have such a tight knit friendship with Rocket.
Also, briefly touching on the question of whether Groot will remain a baby for the whole movie or if he will grow, Gunn was conveniently distracted by his cat.
I highly recommend you head over to Gunn’s Facebook page and read the entire post. It’s thoroughly entertaining.
