- Zoe Saldana & James Gunn recently spoke about Guardians of the Galaxy's Groot. Here are the highlights…
Zoe Saldana on Groot: "I think (Gamora) is intrigued by Groot," Zoe Saldana said of the character. "At least I am. There's something about this. He's such a human and he's the most inhumane physically character out of all of this but he has this sense, this compassion that really… I was reading the script and I worked with James in terms of how can we get them to kind of interact. I know the word 'interact' is very little with Groot or Rocket but there was something very interesting about Groot that if she needs to soften herself, then Groot is definitely a subject to study."
James Gunn on Groot: "Groot's a little bit different. He's able to grow in this movie. So he's able to grow and use his limbs. He's a pretty threatening, powerful dude and he's also like a puppy. He's more of an animal than Rocket is."
James Gunn on Groot and Rocket Racoon's Relationship: "The dynamic in the movie is similar in some ways to the Abnett and Lanning relationship and different in some ways," Gun revealed. "Groot is really the only friend that Rocket has, but Rocket bosses him - he treats him like his slave, he's not always that nice to him. But I think that Groot has an innocence that none of the other characters really have. They're very co-dependent I suppose."
