‘Guardians 2’: Vin Diesel Says Voicing Groot Was ‘Challenging’

Guardians Groot

Baby Groot has arguably become one of the most recognizable and best marketing aspect of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Vin Diesel recently spoke with Total Film about voicing Groot and how, although he only ever says three words, that’s what’s challenging about it.

“It’s very, very challenging because you’re limited to three words. There’s a secret script that I get where it has all of Groot’s lines, but the catch of it all is the only was I can say it is: ‘I am Groot.'”

But Diesel’s voice is pretty Deep and now that Groot is a baby version of his previous self, his voice has changed and is much higher. So how did Vin Diesel go about this change in saying his lines.

“I change it super, super, super, super high. I have a feeling they’ll do a combination of things [to alter the sound electronically]. I mean, I do it super high-pitched. [Adopts glass-shattering Baby Groot squeal] ‘I am Groot!'”

One of the most anticipated superhero films of the year, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will certainly be a fun ride.

Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be in theaters May 5, 3017.

5 Ways Marvel Studios Could Follow & Top ‘Infinity War’

Previous1 of 6

Marvel Studios
Marvel Studios has been building towards a massive confrontation with Thanos since 2012 in The Avengers.  Now that Earth’s Mightest Heroes, and the Guardians of the Galaxy, are finally gearing up to take him down, it seems Marvel is in a bit of a quandary. Obviously they’re not going to just give up on the most successful film franchise of all time, so where do they go from there?

Well, comic fans, you’ve come to the right place for answers. Marvel has a lot of stories to choose from over their 75 year history, but not all of them are right for the big screen. Also, some of our favorite Marvel characters, like Wolverine or the Fantastic Four, have their film rights owned by rival studios, meaning we shouldn’t expect to see them team up with Iron Man or Captain America any time soon.

So, hit the Next button to find out what Marvel Studios should do after Avengers: Infinity War!
