WATCH: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Star Vin Diesel Dub ‘I Am Groot’ in Multiple Languages

'Guardians of the Galaxy'Given that the tree-like lead in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy stays true to character and speaks only three words in a specific sequence — i.e., ‘I am Groot,’ — it would probably be fascinating enough to watch and listen to actor Vin Diesel record the lines with various inflections. That just wasn’t enough for Walt Disney Studios and Marvel Studios, however, who have shared with us this video of Diesel recording the line, not in English, but in Brazilian Portugese, Latin American Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, Russian and French. Recorded at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, Diesel sports stilts to help him get into character in the following B-roll footage. (Links in previous statement go directly to the :30 international spots featuring the Guardians of the Galaxy dubbed in the various languages, which include Diesel’s performances.

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team — the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits — Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon; Groot, a tree-like humanoid; the deadly and enigmatic Gamora; and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand — with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gilian, Djimon Hounsou with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Commander Rael and Benicio del Toro as The Collector.
