“I’m probably the most excited kid in the world right now!” Hania gushed about attending the premiere.
“This is a lifetime experience for me,” her younger brother agreed.
Vin was thrilled by his kids’ responses, and noted that this is one of the first films he’s made that the youngsters are able to watch.
“The only movie that I made, except for
Pacifier, which they weren't born yet,” he explained. “But it's the only movie that I made that they can actually come to.”
The two kids added that their dad does the Baby Groot voice at home, and he happily obliged, declaring, “I am Groot” for the ET cameras.
So does the fan-favorite character have a chance at his own spin-off?
“What do you think guys?!” Vin asked his kids. “A Groot, a Groot spin-off? What do you think? I know James Gunn wants to do it! Right?”
