Watch Vin Diesel Tell Us He's Groot In Every Damn Language

By Vivian Kane | Videos | July 30, 2014 | Comments ()


Normally when a movie is dubbed into other languages, a new voice cast is brought in. But because Groot in Gaurdians of the Galaxy is a Hodor-type character with, let’s say, a limited vocabulary, they just had Vin Diesel do all his own dubbing.

Here he is on The Tonight Show, being quizzed by Jimmy Fallon. I would like to program Vin growling in Mandarin into some sort of white noise machine, and have it infect my dreams from now until the end of time.

Marvel has also released a number of videos in different languages. Skip to the end of each to see Vin recording his line.

    As someone who is fluent in Chinese most of the time time I hear Chinese on US media (tv/movie) even the Chinese actors they hire manage to screw up Mandarin pronunciations either because they speak a different dialect or they've been in the States so long it makes it difficult for them to speak it with quite the authentic accent (So many people here ends up sounding more like they're from Taiwan when they speak Mandarin, kind of amusing actually), Vin Diesel actually did a good job! Sure the line is simple but still, it's convincing.

    Vin Diesel is a gee dee national treasure if only for his Facebook alone. I mean, he's serious when he posts photos like these. I love it! He's so darn earnest and lovable.

    Someone linked me to Vin Diesel's Facebook page and it's a thing of beauty. I actually kind of love this man. :)

    No Japanese love?

    Gu-ru-tu dess. (I guess)

    I think in Japanese they'll omit the "desu" and just be "ore wa Gu-ru-to"

    Doubt they'll keep it the polite form of "I" (Watashi).

  • Dulce et Banana

    I think you're right. My exposure was "Canadian visiting Tokyo helpful phrases" - as polite as possible to avoid offence.

  • NoPantsMcLane

    This is not every damn language. You disappoint me.

    The other languages are not damned.

    Aww. I've been eating up all the press for this movie and Bradley Cooper doesn't seem to give two shits, which I kinda get because there was no on set bonding for him. A little bit of disconnect compared is understandable. But Vin Diesel (in a similar situation) is totes here for it.

  • Nadiney

    I wonder if it's because he had the benefit of being The Iron Giant. In interviews about that film he seems to just fully, fully get how important a voice can be for an audience. Plus he just seems like an all around nice guy while the Emu seems like...fucking Bateman vibes coming off that dude in waves.

    He is such a cool guy. Totally not my usual type, but I love him.
