While he might literally made of money for Marvel/Disney, Baby Groot isn’t the best thing about the third ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2.’ trailer.
He’s cute, will provide some great comic relief, and fans will buy whatever merchandise they put him on, but, I don’t think he’ll be the best part of the movie. For one, the soundtrack will be once again on point. We are already emotionally connected to Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), so for him to finally find his father (Kurt Russell) will add some emotion like no other, plus the love connection with Gamora (Zoe Saldana) seems like it will blossom.
It looks like we add to the Guardians, with Yondu (Michael Rooker) and Nebula (Karen Gillan) taking part in some of the action and the Marvel character Mantis (Pom Klementieff) gets added to the mix. Drax (Dave Bautista) has some of the best one-liners (Die spaceship is something I’ve yelled while playing video games before). Rocket’s (Bradley Cooper) there to be a bad ass misunderstood trash panda, and yes, Baby Groot (Vin Diesel) will be there.
James Gunn the bar was set high, and so far it looks like you’ve done an outstanding job.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. will drop May 5, 2017.
