Vin Diesel and the Rebirth of Groot

Vin Diesel is currently riding very high on the box office horizon. The Fate of the Furious has broken the one billion dollar mark in the global ticket sales. The car chase movie will still be in theaters when Vin Diesel’s other film hits screens. Diesel is returning to the role of Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. — sort of.


Diesel will be playing Baby Groot, a reborn version of his original character. Diesel has also pointed out that the character of Groot will return to adulthood in the near future. Eventually, a completely different Groot is going to end up on screen. Surely, the actor is thrilled to be able to develop the supporting character in such a unique way.


Few actors enjoy playing the same role in the same way over and over again. This is one reason why a popular actor will leave a successful movie franchise. Vin Diesel is being afforded a rather nice benefit with the way Groot is being scripted. The strange tree being is clearly positioned in a supporting role, but Groot is not a “throwaway” character. Instead of simply putting Diesel’s name and limited voice contribution to the project, Marvel is allowing the actor to have fun with an interesting space tree humanoid.


A slight amount of intrigue is gained by crafting the rebirth of Groot as a continual process through a series of films. Diesel is sure to be thrilled with how things are going to work. Fans can share his enjoyment by following along with Groot’s development.
