    I loved groot in the movie however I am pretty sure they could have used any one's voice for that character and then manipulated the voice anyway they pleased I do not think it needed vin diesel to bring the character to life

    When Vin played the Iron Giant, he too had a limited vocabulary same as Groot. Two alien characters that shared a powerful selfless personality and both making extreme sacrifices at the end of each film with matching famous last words as "Superman" and "We are Groot". Vin has this deep gentle growl that is even more endearing when his speech is slowed that he makes simple phrases resonate through each scene. Marvel did the right thing acquiring his voice talent and they should keep throwing money at him.

    Close your eyes and imagine the interviewer is speaking with the character and not the actor. It's so much fun.

    Well, that makes sense; the Iron Giant and Groot are practically the same character.

    i think vin deasel was a bad choice cast to be groot not that he was bad or anything but seriosly they spent god knows how much money to get a big named actor like vin to say maybe like 20 words in total big waste of money if you ask me

      That was the whole point though. It wasn't only the fact Groot says I am Groot but that the actor had to inflect different emotions with such limited dialogue. He did well enough.


    • Jenna & Julien Fan

      Seriously, it's a challenge and Vin brought Groot to life by just using those three words!! Not every actor can be good by having a full dialogue! It's all about exploring your boundaries and I must say it shows a very different side of Vin!! A great actor can even show up just a little in a movie and say a few words because it makes you want to know more of what they can do!! You can take a little of the character and turn it into something alive and amazing!!

    I wasn't expecting to love this movie, but I did. I haven't been to a movie in theaters where the audience was laughing out loud so much, and Groot was such a great character and really pulled on our heartstrings. The duo of Rocky and Groot is just awesome on so many levels. This movie was so much fun, I can't wait to see it again.
