James Gunn Confirms What Groot’s Sacrifice in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Really Means

Marvel Entertainment

So, this may won’t exactly be news for some, while it’s going to be a little bit of a sad realisation for others. 

Groot instantly became a beloved character in Marvel‘s Guardians of the Galaxy. The three-word speaking tree creature was a charming, heart-warming creation, which is why it was so emotional when he sacrifices himself to shield the team.

Of course, those frowns were turned upside down at the end of the film, when it was revealed that we now had a dancing baby Groot! Cue zillions in baby Groot merchandise.

Now, this writer, along with many others, though writer-director James Gunn had found a way for Groot to survive, that this little Groot was still the same character only in infant form. Alas, as per Gunn’s icy confirmation…

Okay… just give me a moment…

There you have it, the original Groot we were first introduced officially died and this new Groot is a different being – his son. It was fun seeing baby Groot in action Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, at the end of which we were introduced to a moody teen Groot. It’s going to be interesting to see if he has some of his father’s qualities as he gets older.

We’ll next see him in Avengers: Infinity War, which arrives in Australia on April 25 and opens in the US on May 4.
