James Gunn has always been good at inserting small details with great emotional meaning, and Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 3 is no different. Let’s continue after the jump!
If you have seen the film, you know that Gamora ( Zoe Saldaña ) is impatient with Groot ( Vin Diesel ), who keeps repeating her recurring phrase – «I am Groot» – without her being able to understand. This version of Gamora comes from a past where she has not known the Guardians , so she is not part of her family. At the end of the adventure, however, the heroine finally manages to understand her friend’s words, a sign that by now she too has entered the circle of the Guardians . Shortly after, as our heroes talk, Groothe addresses all of them and for the first time we hear him say different words than usual: “I love you guys” .
Well, Gizmondo gave a very interesting explanation of that moment. In reality, it’s not that Groot has suddenly changed the way he speaks: it’s us viewers who finally manage to understand him, as Gamora just happened . After six movies (counting other Guardian appearances ), we too have become part of the family. Groot evidently maintains an emotional relationship with the people he meets, and only those who are really close to him can understand this. We are now part of that circle, like the other members of the group.
James Gunn himself , when questioned about it, confirmed the correctness of this interpretation. The perfect closure for a trilogy that has involved, enthralled and thrilled audiences from all over the world.
I really need this to be true @JamesGunn https://t.co/tA2ge5YHm2
