Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 had plenty of highlights that involved Baby Groot. Right from the opening credits sequence, we see the lovable tree creature dancing like there’s no tomorrow to Electric Light Orchestra’s “Mr. Blue Sky”. But although he spends much of the film in his tiny state, during the mid-credits we see him starting to grow into Teenage Groot.
Obviously, trying to find the right design for Teenage Groot must have been a fun challenge for the artists. Thankfully, concept artist Anthony Francisco brought some inspiring details that helped create the teenage version of the lovable Guardian.
Here is the wonderful concept art of Teenage Groot, courtesy of Francisco’s Facebook page:
As you can see, Teenage Groot is seen wearing some blue headphones and holding a certain device in his hands. During the penultimate post-credits sequence, we see Teenage Groot without headphones on playing what Peter Quill/Star-Lord described as a “mind-numbing game”.
Interestingly enough, this concept art of Teenage Groot features a significantly less messy room. Although we do see some of his branches around him, in the film itself, there are branches flooding his room.

‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2’ Easter Eggs & Other References
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 has been out here in the states for a week. It’s no surprise that it was the number one movie this past weekend as fans were more than excited for the return of Star-Lord and the gang as they once again saved the galaxy. The film was flawed but fun, and had a great deal of heart as the concept of family was greatly explored throughout the film. Not only did it focus on Star-Lord as he learned who his real father was, but also his adoptive family the Guardians as they go through the normal pains and growths that any family goes through. Each member of the Guardians (and some new members) had great character arcs and overall, the film was incredibly entertaining.
This being a Marvel film, of course, it was loaded with Easter Eggs. Because this is a shared cinematic universe, almost every film within the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) references Marvel comics as well as other films within the same universe. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 is no different as the film had a plethora of Easter Eggs related to Marvel comics, the MCU, and other things as well.
