Stop-motion Baby Groot scores James Gunn seal of approval

The Dancing Baby Groot sequence from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy sparked a pop-culture sensation that launched a seemingly endless parade of merchandise and introduced a new generation (or two) to The Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back.” It also inspired stop-motion filmmakers Kyle Roberts and Nathan Poppe to collaborate on a new video.

Using a hand-drawn background and more than 1,000 photos of Hot Toys 1/4th-scale Groot and Marvel Legends 6-inch Drax, Roberts spent “dozens of hours” to recreate that scene (with a Jackson 5 cover by Denver Duncan). The result caught the attention of “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn, who commented this morning on their YouTube page, and then tweeted his appreciation for their work.
