Though the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy is filled with unique characters, Vin Diesel’s Groot is one of the strangest. A sentient tree-like creature, Groot is only capable of saying the phrase “I am Groot,” though it can be translated to mean any number of things. So when it came time to dub the film into other languages for its worldwide release who better to deliver the performance of Groot than the man himself? Marvel Studios have debuted a series of videos showing off the film in four different languages each with Diesel still providing the voice of the character (he also did it in a fifth language, Mandarin Chinese). Check them out below!
An action-packed, epic space adventure, the movie expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
The big screen adaptation also stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close and Benicio del Toro.
