Possibly everybody’s favourite Guardians of the Galaxy character, Groot may not say much, but then he is a tree. Vin Diesel provides his voice, and let’s just say that he means it, man.

The Marvel people have let loose some behind the scenes footage of Diesel doing his Groot thing for the first Guardians movie. He arrives with metal leg attachments (which likely have an actual name that escapes us), as he says he was trying to know what it feels like to be a seven-and-a-half foot tree. Wow.

We then get plenty of permutations of “I am Groot!” – but in Spanish, as that was this recording session’s aim. “Yo soy Groot!”

At least he wouldn’t have had too much trouble memorising his lines…

Stay tuned to STACK over the holiday break for more weird and wonderful dives behind the scenes of the Marvel movie archives.
