Production recently wrapped on Marvel’s space epic Guardians of the Galaxy and in addition to being mostly set in space, the film will bring on some new characters, one of which is the gun-toting-loud-mouthed Rocket Raccoon. Chris Pratt, who stars in the film as Peter Quill, recently offered a description of the character.
“You think it’s a cartoon character, but it’s not, it’s a very real creature,” Pratt said in an interview with Access Hollywood. ”[Rocket Raccoon has been] tortured his whole life and no one else likes him, so he’s lonely and he’s angry and it’s like, [there are] all these elements [to the character]. You sort of forget about that, you wouldn’t think about, [and] hopefully will come to life. I think it will and that’s why they hired a really good actor to do the role.”
