Thanks to their appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Guardians of the Galaxy are now household names. Today, everyone loves Star-Lord, Drax, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, and, of course, Groot. Before the first film, though, Marvel Studios had an idea to introduce those then-largely unknown characters to fans in a rather unconventional way.
James Gunn knows how to make VFX look realistic. His work on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy with creating Rocket Raccoon and Groot has made the characters a staple of the MCU.
