Vin Diesel has just given us all a reason to be seriously jealous! The Furious 8 star recently got to see a completed clip from Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, and if Diesel’s reaction is anything to go by, whatever he saw is undeniably epic!
According to Yahoo, the clip Diesel saw is an expanded version of the footage Marvel brought to show fans at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, which features Fondu, Rocket, and Baby Groot (voiced by Diesel) escaping from The Ravagers.
Unfortunately, Diesel wasn’t able to give fans a peek at the new footage he was treated to, but he did film his reaction to watching it!
“Guys, gimme a second here, gimme a second— wow,” says Diesel at the beginning of his reaction, which he streamed live for fans on Facebook.
“The first word that comes to mind is ‘necessary…My friend [screenwriter James Gunn] is a genius.” continues Diesel. “I’m blown away because I want to see the whole movie. I not only want to see the whole movie, I want you guys to see the whole movie.”
Diesel’s intense reaction to whatever he saw definitely makes us even more eager to catch the second installment of Guardians of the Galaxy. We’re especially excited over the prospect of seeing how Diesel goes about playing a much younger Groot. As everyone who saw the first film knows, Groot sacrifices himself in order to save his friends and then comes back reborn as adorable Baby Groot. In Vol. 2, we’ll see the lovable tree creature return as a toddler aged version.
