Sorry, The Old Groot Can’t Come To The Phone Right Now — Why? Cuz He’s DEAD AND BABY GROOT IS HIS SON!

Guardians Of The Galaxy fans were mortified on Tuesday when they got some really sad clarification from director James Gunn.

In a Twitter debate between sci fi fans over whether they would save Baby Groot or an adorable porg from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the director weighed in that of course you’d save Baby Groot, who is a sentient being.

When someone suggested that Baby Groot could just regrow himself like after the first movie, Gunn had to break the news all over again:

First Groot is dead. Baby Groot is his son.
— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) February 27, 2018

Fans with other interpretations did not want to believe it, but Gunn was adamant:

That’s just facts!
— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) February 27, 2018

It’s canon AF (and it’s in the movies).

Even if what you say is true – and it may not be true that Groot was asexually reproduced – then you would believe Barbra Streisand’s new dogs are her original dog and that is so very clearly not the case. https://t.co/rY60MowA7l

Fans were DEVASTATED! For real!

Oh my God. Baby Groot is an orphan. Star-Lord is an orphan. Peter is now Groot’s version of Youdu. Dammit, @JamesGunn, you magnificent bastard.
— Donna Dickens (@MildlyAmused) February 27, 2018

BTW, Gunn has explained before that Groot was dead and Baby Groot was a new person — in September 2016, in March, May, and September of last year — and every time it blows more fans’ minds.

But don’t think of it as the same clarification. Think of it as the son of the previous clarification. LOLz!

Did YOU know Groot was dead??
