There looks to be a short trailer coming out soon for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The run time for this is one minute and 29 seconds. If the track history on how much appreciation some of the cast had with the already-seen clips is any indication, one can pretty much ascertain how exciting this trailer could be.
The Footage That Was Seen
A couple of months ago voice of Groot, Vin Diesel, expressed his amazement via his Facebook page. Director Gunn was by his side and explained it was like the footage already seen at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con, but more. Gunn also said that Vin was the first cast member to have seen this.
“My friend is a genius!”
The footage recap was provided by Collider. There were two clips of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 footage which had been revealed to the Hall H attendees. The first clip described Yondu and Rocket Raccoon being thrown in jail by The Ravagers and baby Groot is left alone in a bird cage because “he’s too adorable” to kill.
The next clip was more of an extended trailer and Diesel got more of what fans had seen at the SDCC. So do you think this classified trailer will amaze many fans?
Cast member Kurt Russell, who plays Ego in the Marvel movie, gave his take as he also saw the footage, according to Collider. He expressed how there are family issues going on in the second movie that can relate to the general audience. James Gunn’s first movie focused on the Guardians becoming a family. Now they are trying to co-exist as one. Russell expresses this matter.
“I was impressed with the stuff that I saw at Comic-Con, but they didn’t show you everything [laughs]. It’s a very complex story, and they really get into it. I thought it looked great too. I was really impressed with it, really impressed with it. I mean, believe me, from knowing the script, to see that and what he did with that sequence, I’m excited to see the movie [laughs]. I think it’s going to be really good.”
Vin Diesel Talks A Different Groot
When the voice-over actor for Groot did his different takes on the vocals for the character, he uttered different inflections of the voice. The purpose there was to invoke to the audience the feelings emoted by Groot through just, “I am Groot.” To reference Rocket Raccoon, “He may not talk good like me and you,” but it’s enough to convey emotion to the audience.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 actor spoke with Collider while promoting his new film, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. He had explained that his younger self, baby Groot, is different from his adult counterpart.
“He couldn’t be more naive as Baby Groot. I always think of the Groot that we saw on the first Guardians as a college-level Groot, so he’s not fully grown yet, but he’s a man. And once he sacrifices himself at the end of the movie, now he has to start all over, so to speak, but we’re gonna see this goofy, adorable, baby Groot thing running around the screen and just learning as he goes.”
