Subscribe To The One Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 Question That Marvel Fans Won't Stop Asking James Gunn Updates
Fans are always interested in learning something new about their favorite upcoming movies. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is no exception. However, the question director James Gunn seems to be asked the most is a strange one. Everybody seems awfully concerned with Vin Diesel's ability to make his voice higher to go along with a smaller version of Groot.
To be fair Vin Diesel doesn't simply have a deep voice. He has a deep voice. If that voice was coming out of a little tiny Groot, it would sound strange, no argument here. However, we never really considered that the actor would use his natural voice to say "I am Groot" in the new film. We know from previous information that has been revealed that Groot will still be in a tiny form for the duration of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, This is will impact the characters attitude as he'll act much younger, he'll be a bit more wild and difficult to control than the big lumbering tree creature was in the first film. A higher pitched voice would make sense for that sort of character. It would appear that Vin Diesel is, in fact, capable of making a high pitched voice. He is a talented professional actor, after all.
Of course, now that we know that Vin Diesel will be performing some sort of "baby Groot" voice, we have to try and imagine what that would sound like. Honestly, it's fairly hard to conceive. While we're sure Diesel can make a squeaky child voice, the idea of that voice coming from a guy who looks like he was carved out of the side of a mountain made of muscle is more than a little difficult to wrap one's head around. What would that sound like?
Back at San Diego Comic-Con our own Sean O'Connell asked James Gunn about Groot's voice. It was one of the things noticeably missing from the footage that was shown to the crowd during the big Marvel panel. Gunn was cagey about exactly how Groot would sound, though, in doing so, he seemed to imply Groot would sound different, without really confirming how.
With a release date for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 set for May 5, 2017, we're certainly hoping to get the first public trailer around, say, November's release of Doctor Strange. Whether or not we'll hear Groot's voice remains to be seen. Will we get a hint in a trailer, or will they hold that until everybody gets to the theater. We'll have to wait and see.
