It’s official! Vin Diesel will return to voice Groot for the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Director James Gunn confirmed the return of Vin Diesel to voice the fan-favorite tree-like creature, but remained mum about how Groot will “resurrected” in the sequel. In the first film, the character died protecting his friends, but was seen last as a tiny dancing sprout.
In a conversation on Facebook, a fan asked, “Will Vin Diesel be back in GOTG3.” Ignoring the typo made by the fan, Gunn answered a simple “Yes.” Many other fans assumed that a third movie is also in the works, but Gunn soon cleared up his answer.
Aside from Vin Diesel, the rest of the gang that includes Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper and Karen Gillan have yet to be announced if they will reprise their roles.
“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is scheduled for theater release on May 5, 2017.
