Hollywood actor Vin Diesel, who voiced the character of Groot in the animated series “I Am Groot”, has been hailed by the film’s director Kristen Lepore.

Diesel joined the MCU almost ten years ago and recorded the voice of Groot, in all ages, in five films, including ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’, ‘Avengers: Infinity War’, ‘Avengers: Endgame’ and ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’.

Recalling her experience of listening to Vin during the recording session, Kristen said, “I was blown away by Vin during the recording session. He just walked up to the plate and nailed it. He was going through the entire short after only seeing it once. He’s a fantastic actor and he gave a subtly different performance with each “I Am Groot” on each play. He brought so much life to Baby Groot.

Executive producer Brad Winderbaum agreed with Lepore and shared that Diesel’s commitment and contribution to the character was commendable. “Vin is as invested in playing Groot as any of our actors are in playing their characters in the MCU. He’s extremely passionate about it. He thinks about the intent behind every scene and how to deliver the line and create the perfect inflection for those three words to convey what the scene needs,” Winderbaum said.

Well, if you think voicing Baby Groot is a walk in the park, Winderbaum will tell you that it’s not easy as it seems at first glance.

He said, “It’s easy to think, Oh, it’s just three words. Anyone can do it. Well, I’ll tell you, no one can do that. When we animate, we will have temporary recordings plugged in there. But it’s not until you get Vin’s voice that the character comes to life. It’s strange.

Written and directed by Emmy Award-winning Kristen Lepore, the five “I Am Groot” shorts center on Baby Groot’s childhood and adventures with plenty of hilarious elements.

“I am Groot” is available to stream on Disney+ Hotstar

While talking about Vin Diesel’s Groot, the actor is set to appear in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. It will be released in 2023 and will be James Gunn’s last adventure in the GOTG series. Besides that, a holiday special will also be released in December this year.
