SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
Since the release of the highly successful Guardians of the Galaxy, fans have become smitten with the scene at the end of the movie in which a baby version of Groot can be seen dancing to the Jackson 5 hit “I Want You Back.”
One fan even went as far as making his own dancing Groot by converting a Movin’ & Groovin flower he bought on eBay.
Fortunately for fans who need to get their dancing Groot fix, but can’t afford the multiple tickets needed for repeated viewings, the official clip has been released for online consumption.
Director James Gunn provided some more insight into the scene, telling Yahoo! Movies that, “It was initially written as a tag for the very end of the film. 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.”
Gunn also admitted that those sweet dance moves are actually his own. “Baby Groot dancing is 100 percent me,” he said. “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. 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?!’”
