AceShowbiz - Groot is limited to five words which includes "I am," "we are" and "Groot," and Rocket Racoon is the only one who can interpret what the tree-like character says since he has been around Groot the longest in "Guardians of the Galaxy". "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" director James Gunn provided Vin Diesel with his special Groot version of the script to help the muscled actor know the true meaning behind the inflection variations.
James took to Instagram on Friday, September 2 to share a picture featuring the special screenplay which only him and Vin have. "This is the special Groot version of the script that only @vindiesel and I have, where every Groot line is printed in English instead of Groot, so Vin will know what the various 'I am Groot's mean," the helmer wrote in the caption. "I love putting this thing together."
"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" also sees the return of Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan and Michael Rooker who are set to reprise their roles as Peter Quill a.k.a. Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, the voice of Rocket, Nebula and Yondu respectively. They are joined by Pom Klementieff, Kurt Russell, Tommy Flanagan and Sylvester Stallone.
The second "Guardians of the Galaxy" film is scheduled for a May 5, 2017 release in U.S. theaters. Set to the backdrop of "Awesome Mixtape #2", "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" continues the team's adventures as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill's true parentage.
