Kevin Feige Reveals Whether Baby Groot Remembers His Past In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2

Kevin Feige Reveals Whether Baby Groot Remembers His Past In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2

Kevin Feige sheds some light on whether Groot and Baby Groot are one and the same and teases when we'll get to see the first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It's sooner than you might think...

It's fair to say that most of us assumed that Baby Groot was a one time deal and that the beloved character would be back to his normal self by the time the sequel rolled around. Well, we now know that won't be the case and that the smaller version of the sentient tree will take centre stage in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. However, is he an entirely new character with new memories?

After all, seeing as Groot was destroyed, it would make sense that the version grown from his remains might be a completely new being, right? Thankfully, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed in an interview with Collider that Groot is still Groot. "He remembers. He’s not mentally a baby, he is still Groot… I sort of equate it to Spock circa the end of Search for Spock and The Voyage Home."

As for the relationship between Rocket and Groot, he added: "When it comes to a Guardians of the Galaxy film, a James Gunn script, it’s not just about the funny, it’s not just about the action, it’s about the heart. And the amount of heart that you get out of this trash panda raccoon and now this little twig baby Groot is actually awe-inspiring. It is amazing what he’s done with those two."

It's fair to say that that sounds pretty much perfect, and to say that these characters are in the best possible hands with James Gunn would be an understatement. Be sure to check out the video below too as Feige hints that the first Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer will be with Doctor Strange.
