Yes, with Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” edging nearer on the horizon, Hasbro has unveiled Dancing Groot Vol. 2 for a Spring 2017 arrival in stores everywhere. Don’t pretend this surprises you.
For those who missed out on the original surprise 2014 intergalactic adventure entirely or just its famously adorable coda, Groot’s reborn infant form plays a little game of “Made You Look” with ever-so-serious Drax the Destroyer by getting his baby-groove on in a tiny flower pot to The Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” just out of the corner of Dave Bautista’s eye, making this micro-snippet halfway into the credits quite possibly the most beloved scene of the entire movie.
Naturally, it spawned some fabulously lucrative merchandise, too. Obviously.
Of course, like the stunning reception for the first movie itself, this guaranteed a sequel. This second-generation Groot’s eyes light up as he starts gyrating and shaking his limbs whenever it detects sound, lending a happy seal of approval to even the worst Spotify compilation. Why you would want to make this innocent little bundle of twiggy joy shake it to your Nickelback-meets-Miley Cyrus mix, we don’t dare guess. However, assuming your tunes happen to just plain suck, you can always just watch this 11.5-inch dynamo bust a move to a clip from the “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” soundtrack whenever any other environmental sound sets him off.
Unlike the real heroic anthropomorphic tree with a paltry vocabulary, Dancing Baby Groot Vol. 2 runs on three included AAA batteries.
