4 Things You Never Knew About Baby Groot
1. Groot has his own special script
If there’s one thing the galaxy should know by now, it’s not to underestimate a Baby Groot. Take his vocabulistics, for example. If you thought this sentient sapling only knew three words, think again. Turns out that there is a whole world of meaning to read between the lines of each and every “I am Groot.”
To help Vin Diesel capture just the right inflection for each of Baby Groot’s scenes, James Gunn wrote a “Groot Version” of the script just for the two of them. In it, every one of Baby Groot’s lines is translated into English to show exactly what the little guy was saying, such as when he gleefully ran off with Rocket’s death button. All and all, he utters his famous line 17 times during the film, which leaves a lot of room for interpretation. But really, what more is there to say? As far as we’re concerned, “I am Groot” suits every occasion just fine. Baby Groot Cuddly Toy
2. Baby groot speaks 16 langauges
Vin Diesel famously recorded the voice of Groot 1,000 times in six different languages for the first film (then added another 9 when it was released on DVD). For the Guardians’ second go around, Diesel upped his vocabulistics game by saying “I am Groot” in sixteen foreign-languages.
Despite the added work, Diesel was all for it:
It means that my voice is being heard in countries where that’s not always the case… It’s usually voice actors in respective markets that say your lines and that’s not necessarily what the character is always. So, I love that, but it definitely makes it that much more challenging. Baby Groot Cuddly Toy
It’s a good thing too. Because personally, we don’t think anyone else could capture the fine nuances of Baby Groot’s voice any better then Dominic Toretto.
3. Baby Groot has no memories of his old self
One of Groot’s many, many awesome superpowers, along with killing space clowns and flying through space, is that he can regenerate himself from the smallest shards of his trunk. A mere potted branch will do the trick, as we saw at the end of the first film. Which is great news, because it basically means he’s basically immortal and won’t be leaving us anytime soon. But as fate would have it, Groot loses a lot more than his size when he regrows back to life. Baby Groot Cuddly Toy
When asked how Baby Groot compares to his adult-sized counterpart, James Gunn stated that he has lost all memory of his previous self, and for all intents and purposes, he is now an entirely different creature. Which is incredibly sad when you think about it, because that means the original Groot did actually die at the end of the first film. This differs greatly from the comics, where each time he gets blown to bits, Groot is reborn with all of his original memories, mannerisms, and abilities, as if nothing had happened at all. Though, you can kind of see why Gunn went his route, since in today’s day and age of characters haphazardly dying only for it be reversed panels later, it makes this petrified superhero’s sacrifice all the more meaningful.
4. Baby Groot didn’t appear in the comics
As any Groot aficionado would know, the “Monarch from Planet X” first appeared in 1960’s Tales to Astonish #13. He started off as a villainous tree monster terrorizing small American towns and the dreams of Peter Parker, but would eventually grow into the big-hearted Flora Colossus we all know and love today. Though even then, there are several differences from the comics that you won’t see up onscreen. Anime Nendoroid Figure
For one, he could talk, and he talked a lot. In fact, Groot wouldn’t shut up in his early days as a Guardian. But his teammates overlooked his annoying verbosity on account of his consistently sacrificing himself for their well-being. In his very first mission with them, Groot went kamikaze to save the day and was blown to bits. He would subsequently “die” several more times, but each time be reborn from a twig offshoot. Though unlike in the movies, he didn’t go through the stages of development we currently see the hero growing into. Instead, he was exactly the same bombastic character, just much tinier. It wasn’t until James Gunn came along that the world got the Baby Groot it never knew it always wanted. Baby Groot Cuddly Toy
