Assembling a group of misfits, James Gunn made an impossible movie including a raccoon and tree work. Released in 2014, Guardians of the Galaxy starred Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, and Zoe Saldana.
In Marvel’s phase 2, the film also utilized music throughout the film, especially 70s music, a trademark of James Gunn. The director will be departing from the MCU after finishing the third installment of Guardians of the Galaxy and a Marvel short series called ‘I Am Groot.’
Vin Diesel is Groot
While recording this voice, it is reported the Fast and Furious actor spoke in several different languages, including Russian, Mandarin, Spanish, Portuguese, German, and French so that they could use his real voice in the film worldwide.
Considering the difficulty in making a character of a talking tree who speaks only three words ‘I am Groot’, it is quite impressive how well the character has been appreciated by the fans. In an interview with the Guardian, Vin Diesel commented on the same:
“It appealed to the thespian in me. You’re talking about a very challenging character to pull off. How could you really create a whole character with three words? To really bring the emotion and chart the arc.”
More of Groot in MCU?
In one of James Gunn’s last forays into the MCU, the director has been developing a TV series of shorts on the character of Groot. The series will follow Vin Diesel’s voiced Groot in his adventures and introduce some new characters.

The TV series I Am Groot is set to release on August 10 of this year.
