He only has three words in his vocabulary but that might be enough to land him his own movie.

Groot, the Guardians of the Galaxy’s lovable, matured tree turned fierce, baby sapling could find himself in his own spinoff, according to the voice behind the character, Vin Diesel.

Speaking to MTV International, Diesel revealed that a Groot-solo project is something Guardians Director James Gunn has considered and “would love to do” at some point.


“It’s something James Gunn has talked about and something I know he would love to do,” Diesel said.

“I think it could be very interesting. I think it’s inevitable.”

He continued by describing Groot as one of the more “unique” characters in the entire Marvel universe and one that has exceeded expectations in terms of popularity.

“I think he’s just such an interesting character and there’s so much to learn about him.”


So what would a Groot movie be about?

Diesel said he’d personally like to learn more about the character’s backstory and even explore his home planet.

“I’d love to go back to his planet and learn more about him. I think we all would,” he said.

We’re down with that! And besides, who doesn’t want to watch this for around two hours…
