We can all agree that this has been a terrible week, right? Between Robin Williams’ death, massive flooding in Detroit and the awful situation in Ferguson, we’ve been reminded just how awful the world can be.
Little moments of joy like Baby Groot dancing in Guardians of the Galaxy can help break up the misery, if only just a bit. So it’s cool that Marvel released the scene for all of us to enjoy.
Before you proceed further, it should be said that you might consider this a spoiler if you haven’t seen Guardians yet. But this isn’t a crucial scene, so much as a fun one — and one that’s been discussed frequently online.
This was the perfect way to end the movie, continuing the feeling of fun and joy experienced from perhaps the most pleasant movie surprise of the summer.
By the way, director James Gunn says he provided the dance moves for Groot, arguably the breakout character of the film. That footage has to be part of the Guardians Blu-ray, doesn’t it?
