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.
Everyone's favorite dancing tree is a real life changer. He's a plant of few words, but he makes those words count.

Turns out baby Groot wasn't just trolling Drax when he wouldn't let him see him dancing.  According to director James Gunn, 

There was actually a scene that we cut from the movie where big Groot was dancing to 'Livin' Thing' by ELO. And it wasn't such an elaborate dance. It was more that he was just moving up and down like this, and Drax was dismissive and gave him this look like he was a loser when he did that.

Dancing is ludicrous to Drax. I don't think he understands it. If Drax owned a town, if he was a mayor, the first law would be no dancing. But yeah, so at the end of the movie, little baby Groot didn't want to get caught dancing, because he would kill him.


The more you know.  I say dance on little buddy, you've got moves!

Most celebrities take props and costumes from the sets of their movies as mementos, not Chris Pratt. This Guardian of the Galaxy took his full Star-Lord costume just so he could wear it to children's hospitals. This week he stopped by Children's Hospital Los Angeles to let the kids try on the jacket and talk superheroes.

He even got to sit with Dylan Prunty and talk all about The Lego Movie. Chris Pratt is Guarding the Galaxy one child at a time.
