Guardians of the Galaxy

Without a doubt, one of the most popular characters from the big screen in 2014 was Rocket Raccoon, the feisty, anthropomorphic creature with big guns and even bigger attitude in Guardians of the Galaxy. Bradley Cooper gave the character his signature voice, but a whole crew of people helped bring the little guy to life, and now a short little featurette from the visual effects company Framestore shows how they made it happen. From shooting on set with a stuffed raccoon or a guy in a blue unitard with Rocket's face on it, to pre-visualization and other visual effects, it's a quick progression of how we got the final product. Watch!

Here's Framestore's "Rocket Reel" featurette for Guardians of the Galaxy (via SlashFilm):

Rocket Raccoon

Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn (Slither, Super). Brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits — Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to join his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand. Marvel has the film available on Blu-Ray & DVD right now.

  • I really never thought that would work. He looked amazing in the film though.

    Meh. The film was hilarious. Thank you, Feige. The action sequences where quite dull though. Nothing like Cap 2 or Age of Ultron.

    Eee that puppet is terribly frightening.

    It's 2015. Why aren't they use wires to hold the puppet up instead of crouching over?

    *SIGH* *Face-Palms* anyone else here thinks This (or Apes) should've Won that damn Oscar?
