“I had great meetings with James at various points in the process”she recently said director and executive producer Kristin Lepore at ComicBook.com’s Phase Zero Podcast. “The biggest one was like our initial meeting, where we just discussed this amazing character that he created, just, you know, just to make sure we could do Baby Groot the way we should. And he was like, “Oh yeah, he’s a naughty kid. And he’s like an emoji kid too,” which made me laugh. And I kept repeating that in meetings. I was like, we need to make sure we nail these poses and facial expressions because all he has is two eyes and a mouth. He doesn’t even have a nose, it’s a very limited face. So he’s just like an emoji, nails, emotions and expressions. We had to do it with Groot as well.”
To greet you, we remind you that I Am Groot will be canonical in the MCU.
