One of the most talked about moments of "Guardians of the Galaxy" was also the one that stole everyone's heart: the reveal of Baby Groot, and his adorable dancing skills.
So how will the baritone Vin Diesel voice the pint-sized tree creature in the upcoming Marvel Studios sequel? Of all of the questions surrounding "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2," that's apparently the one most frequently posed to director James Gunn -- so much so that he has a patented answer at the ready:

In short, we probably shouldn't worry about how young Groot will sound. And if the end of "Guardians of the Galaxy" is any indication, we can count on him to continue to steal everyone's heart.
Just last week, Gunn revealed there's a special "Groot version" of the sequel's script that only he and Diesel possess: In it, the character's signature "I am Groot" dialogue is translated into English.
Opening May 5, 2017, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Glenn Close, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan and Kurt Russell.
