Marvel's surprise hit Guardians of the Galaxy keeps on surprising over a year after it's release. The father of a young boy who suffers dyspraxia posted this on director, James Gunn's Facebook:

Hi James…This is in response to your recent post about Guardians being released a year ago and the effect it has had on my son. My son is four years old and has a condition known as dyspraxia, which not only interferes with motor skills but speech as well. When Guardians came out Sawyer could only say about three words and would communicate to his mother and I by other means. When he saw Groot, something clicked inside him and he connected with him on a level I haven’t seen. He began to mimic him and he would use the word “Bah” for a lot, but after he saw the film, he would change the tone in which he said it to convey a different meaning. He would also start saying Groot for many things as well. Since that, he was finally able to go to a speech class and it has helped amazingly. I just wanted to thank you though, for a script and movie that was written so well that a four year old, three at that time, could connect with someone who had the same language barrier.

Seven year old Padawan Colin Gilpatrick wrote a letter to George Lucas after discovering that Jedi could not get married:



Lucasfilm responded with a grab bag of goodies and an a-okay for Colin to wed.  



It's too cute, I can't handle it!




Colin's got a few good years to train in the force before setttling down, but it's nice to know he's got the official Lucasfilm blessing when the time comes.

Jordan is a little boy who is fighting some really big diseases and received a much-deserved pick-me-up when one of his favorite singers, Taylor Swift, visited him in his hospital room.

Swift stopped by Boston Children's Hospital with a song and a hug for little Jordan. The joy he has when the pop star begins to play is something that will warm any heart. Way to go, Taylor!

Not really though...the star from HBO's "Game of Thrones" had an opportunity to meet the adorably unhappy cat and decided to play along with his grouchy selfie companion.


UPDATE: We've learned this fantastically grumpy picture is a photoshopped fake. Either way, the resemblance is pretty uncanny. Well done, internets!
