GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: ‘Baby Groot Dancing’ Scene is Now Online


For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, this post contains spoilers from Guardians of the Galaxy as the clip comes at the very end of the film.

But Marvel have realized that fans can’t get enough of the dancing Groot sequence, so they have today decided to put the scene online officially.

Director James Gunn said about a plant dancing scene:

“It was initially written as a tag for the very end of the film,” Gunn said. “But after we shot it, it worked so well I wanted to put it at the actual end of the film so none of the audience would miss it.”

Gunn revealed that the dancing Groot wasn’t actually Vin Diesel (who is the voice actor for Groot character in the film), but the director himself:

“Baby Groot dancing is 100 percent me. I was too embarrassed for anyone to be there, so I made everyone leave the room and I set up a camera and I videotaped myself dancing. Then I sent the video to the animators and had them animate over that. I begged them not to leak the video! Two of my closest friends came to an early screening and said ‘Hey, I recognize those moves! That’s you dancing isn’t it?!'”

We learned that Gunn is already working on Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

Now sit back and enjoy a baby Groot dancing to The Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back,” the scene which takes place just before the end credits of Marvel’s superhero space opera that has brought in over $330 million at the global box office.
