Groot was definitely one of the highlights of James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, so even though the sequel is still a few months away, he’s already a fan favorite amongst many fans, especially now that he’s just a baby. Many of us were wondering if Groot would remain a small sapling of sorts for the sequel, but we finally got our answer during San Diego Comic-Con. However, it’s obviously hard to imagine a baby sporting Vin Diesel’s voice. So that begs the question: will Groot sound different in the sequel?
Funnily enough, not even Gunn knows the exact answer to that question. Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, the director revealed that he and Diesel are still trying to figure out how exactly Groot will sound in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2:
“Well, that’s a little secret we’re holding out on because we don’t know the answer. We’re still figuring it out exactly. Vin and I have been dealing with it a lot and have been figuring out exactly the right way to do it, so it’s taking some trial-and-error. But we’re figuring it out.”
Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Glenn Close, Elizabeth Debicki and Kurt Russell, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opens in theaters on May 5th, 2017.
