With Guardians of the Galaxy available today in Digital HD, Disney has released a featurette with Groot (Vin Diesel) saying his limited vocabulary of “I am Groot” in fifteen languages. Rather than just have the same clip play again and again with a different language each time, this bit is really well put together as it has the line at various points of the movie, and then puts up a graphic of the sentence in the respective language. I don’t know this will spur anyone to buy the movie in Digital HD rather than just wait a few weeks for the Blu-ray (I admit it’s tempting to buy the film now), but this piece is still entertaining.

Here’s the official synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy:
From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team – the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits – Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand – with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is presented by Marvel Studios.
