This week, Marvel Studios' new film, 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' will open in theaters. One of the aforementioned Guardians is a walking, talking tree named Groot, voiced by Vin Diesel. Earlier today, footage was released of Vin Diesel voicing Groot in a number of languages, including Russian. Earlier today, we got a chance to speak with Russian Groot, so here's that. (Also: You're welcome, no one.)

Hello, Groot. It’s nice to meet you.

What?

Я Гроот

I didn’t realize I’d be speaking to the Russian Groot.

Я Гроот

Can we get a translator?

Я Гроот

I don’t speak Russian.

Я Гроот

It sounds like you’re saying the same thing over and over, only in Russian.

Я Гроот

What’s Rocket like?

Я Гроот

What was it like working with Chris Pratt?

Я Гроот

Do you like being a tree?

Я Гроот

Can I feed you some nitrogen?

Я Гроот

Is there a lesson in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ about different types of people coming together for a greater cause that could be applied to today’s geopolitical climate?

Я Гроот

I have no idea what you said.

Я Гроот

This isn’t working.

Я Гроот

Why do you keep saying that?

Я Гроот

I have no idea what you’re saying.

Я Гроот

What did you think of the footage of Vin Diesel doing your voice in Russian?

Я Гроот

It made me laugh.

Я Гроот

Do you know Audrey II?

Я Гроот

Is there a Russian version of Audrey II?

Я Гроот

Have you ever met the Keebler Elf tree?

Я Гроот

It doesn’t speak at all, let alone speak Russian.

Я Гроот

No, the elves live inside the tree and bake cookies.

Я Гроот

Do you like cookies?

Я Гроот

Personally, I like cookies.

Я Гроот

I guess we’re out of time. It was nice to meet you, Russian Groot.
