There are spoilers for the end of Guardians of the Galaxy below. But if you’ve made it this far without this part being spoiler for you, bravo!
As the credits start to roll on James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, we see the adorable Dancing Baby Groot shake his tree-booty to the Jackson 5, only to stop when Drax the Destroyer stares at him. Ever wondered why he stopped? No? Well, we now have an answer anyway.
“There was actually a scene that we cut from the movie where big Groot was dancing to ‘Livin’ Thing’ by ELO.” Gunn notes, adding that Drax was not impressed. “And it wasn’t such an elaborate dance. It was more that he was just moving up and down like this, and Drax was dismissive and gave him this look like he was a loser when he did that.”
But why does Drax hate dancing so much? “Dancing is ludicrous to Drax. I don’t think he understands it,” Gunn explains. “If Drax owned a town, if he was a mayor, the first law would be no dancing. But yeah, so at the end of the movie, little baby Groot didn’t want to get caught dancing, because he would kill him.”
So, now you know. And with that, let’s enjoy Dancing Baby Groot once again.
