Guardians of the Galaxy

Some people thought that just because Vin Diesel only had to say "I Am Groot" over and over again in Guardians of the Galaxy that he didn't have much work to do in the Marvel sci-fi adventure. However, you might have seen a video of Diesel in the studio recording his dialogue (sometimes on stilts) and learned that not only did he have to record that line dozens of times, but he also did it in a bunch of foreign languages too. Well, Marvel has put together a cool little montage of the variations on the line, complete with footage from the film, now available on Digital HD before arriving on Blu-Ray & DVD. Watch below!

Here's the foreign language variation on the now iconic line "I Am Groot" from Marvel:

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 β€” 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 releases the film on Blu-Ray & DVD on December 9th.

To be clear, just because the video shows 15 languages doesn't mean Vin Diesel did all of them, and the video doesn't credit him with all 15. Some of the voices don't sound anything like his - specifically the Japanese and Mandarin.

Did Vin Diesel do the motion capture performance for Groot? I remember seeing a video of him walking around on stilts during filming, but now everyone is saying all he did was voice work. Did Cooper do any motion capture work as well?
