We can see that in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Groot stole the scene again. For those who watched the movies, you may think you already know everything about this nice “talking tree”. But the roots of Groot are much deeper and there are some buried secrets that most fans have not yet discovered. Check out this post some information you did not know about Baby Groot.
Even before the release of the film, it was clear that Baby Groot would sell thousands of toys around the world. Generally, pop culture fans know Baby Groot without even going to see the movie, so it’s easy to assume that their popularity in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 was a combination of Disney and director James Gunn in an attempt to make money. But Gunn has a very various story to tell us.
Gunn was aware of Groot’s “adult” popularity when he wrote the script for Vol.2 and worried that if the focus was only on Baby Groot, it would be killing the version of the character that helped the first hit in the movie , he was scared of how Disney would approach the idea of Baby Groot as a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
To Gunn’s surprise, everyone supported the idea and seemed to understand that the most important thing about this franchise is to let people be surprised. During the creation of the script, the character was not created with the intention of selling toys, collectibles or plush, this was never the key point for James Gunn’s choices, nevertheless Baby Groot is a character that has worked so well that people fall in love with it at first sight in the trailer.
Groot has become very well known lately because of the James Gunn movie. And this week, the character returned to be the center of attention when it appeared in a baby version in the new trailer of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2.
