Guardians of the Galaxy Clip: Baby Groot Dancing!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Guardians of the Galaxy has broken box office records and even saw its soundtrack hit number one on the Billboard charts.

What’s left to do or see? How about Marvel sharing with us one of the most joyously fabulous moments in the entire movie that came at the end?

And we have to warn those who have not seen the film, spoilers ahead!

Yup, we’ve got the video of a baby Groot dancing to I Want You Back by the Jackson 5 that brought a huge smile to everyone who has seen the film.

The video premiered and director James Gunn and the man who is Groot, Vin Diesel, even talked about the scene and how it came about.

Before we get to their quotes, did you know that Diesel got his start as a dancer? Well, listen to what he said about baby Groot dancing and it’ll all make sense.

"Baby Groot dancing is 100 percent me. I was too embarrassed for anyone to be there, so I made everyone leave the room and I set up a camera and I videotaped myself dancing,” Diesel said.

“Then I sent the video to the animators and had them animate over that. I begged them not to leak the video! Two of my closest friends came to an early screening and said, 'Hey, I recognize those moves! That's you dancing isn't it?!'"

Gunn also admitted that the scene was supposed to play post-credits. But, he wanted to move it up. "It was initially written as a tag for the very end of the film," Gunn said. "But after we shot it, it worked so well I wanted to put it at the actual end of the film so none of the audience would miss it."

Thank goodness he did, and now you can see it right here!
