The “Gardens” unite once more with your latest look at #GotGVol2, in theaters May 5!
Marvel Entertainment have just released a 30 second teaser featuring our favourite, Baby Groot.
Director James Gunn has hit back at claims that Baby Groot’s inclusion in the movie was part of a marketing scheme to sell toys.
Gunn claims that he originally planned to keep Groot fully blown in the follow up to Guardians Of The Galaxy, but it didn’t fit with the plot.
“When I was first working on the script for Vol. 2 I was planning on it being years after the first movie and for little Groot to be a grown Groot,” he wrote on a Facebook post.
“But there was something missing. First of all, I thought there was a lot of development the group needed to go through as a group – and it would be a shame for the audience to miss it. And, secondly, for whatever reason, Groot just wasn’t working. It was then I came upon the idea of having Vol. 2 take place very shortly after the first film and for Groot to still be Baby Groot, with quite a lot to learn.”
