If you thought mature Groot was adorable, then your going to combust when you hear the younger version speak.
A new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 teaser was released today, giving fans a two-minute action-packed preview of the forthcoming film.
A highlight of the clip, aside from the gun fire, crazy jumps and large creatures, was hearing baby Groot speak for the first time since emerging as a younger version.
The words, “I am Groot”, have never sounded more adorable than when the reincarnation of the everyone’s favourite Guardian is trying to understand the concept of a bomb detonator – and of course fails to learn the severity of pushing the button.
But just like his former, larger self, there’s a feisty fighter under the adorable exterior.
The clip posted to Twitter offers glimpses of the tiny creature in battle, and boy is he tough.
Baby Groot runs incredibly fast, his branches are used to stop people in their tracks and his laugh is, well, kind of insane.
Check out the clip below and you’ll see what we mean:
