Everyone fell in love with Groot in the first Guardians of the Galaxy film back in 2014. Then, during the credits, everyone fell in love with Groot again, this time as a sapling. In 2017, I predict Baby Groot to be the cutest pop-culture icon of all! Forget Minions and BB-8, Baby Groot is what you and your children (if they exist) are going to want for Christmas this year!
In honor of his cuteness, I’ve made a collection of Screengrabs featuring every shot of Baby Groot from the 2nd trailer to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. In doing so,I realized how little of the trailer Baby Groot actually appears in, making his overwhelming presence all the more impressive. Look close, as a smaller Groot is known to hitch a ride on someone’s shoulder. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits the big screen this May!
