Rocket Speaks! Watch ‘Guardians of the Galaxy”s Gun-Toting Raccoon in New Video [UPDATE]
On the heels of the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘ trailer premiere comes this delightful treat from Marvel: an introductory video to help you get to know Rocket Raccoon a little better. One of the most intriguing characters and the one fans are most excited to see translated to the big screen, Rocket’s the hero we’re all stoked to know more about. Thanks to this short featurette, now you can.
You’ll only hear Rocket talk for about a second in the video, but you do get a brief interview with Bradley Cooper, the voice of Rocket, who expresses the furry hero has some “real anger issues,” and that the wildly inventive and highly original sci-fi hero concept from Marvel is “the kind of movie I’d like to see.” It’s the kind of movie we’d like to see, too!
Cooper is joined by Vin Diesel, who voices Groot, and stars Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, and Karen Gillan, Benicio Del Toro, Lee Pace, John C. Reilly, and many more in this tale of an intergalactic band of heroes who must save the universe from impending doom.
UPDATE: Following the reveal of Rocket comes brief looks at Vin Diesel voicing the tree-like Groot, WWE star Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Zoe Saldana as the green-skinned assassin Gamora, and Chris Pratt as Star-Lord. Check them out below.
‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ is directed by James Gunn and hits theaters on August 1.
