While out and about at Disney’s Animal Kingdom we spotted the new interactive Groot that can respond to spoken phrases with music, motion and movement! In fact, he responds to up 20 spoken phrases and depending on the phrase he will respond in either a happy, sad, mad or excited way. Oh and for those wondering, yes he can dance.
Let’s take a look at the little guy below:
Groot comes with a shoulder plate so he’s also able to sit on your shoulder while you walk around the park.
We also find out a bit more about Groot and his species. Here’s the full description:
The last surviving member of a treelike alien race, Groot is perhaps one of the most unusual beings in all of the cosmos. Though calm and quiet in most instances, he is known to unleash his tremendous strength on any enemy foolish enough to threaten his allies, particularly his longtime partner in crime, Rocket. Though he can only vocalize using the phrase “I am Groot,” the gentle giant’s friends are nevertheless able to understand his exact meaning through his subtle inflections.
You can buy your very own interactive Groot for $59.99 and we reckon these are going to fly off the shelves in time for the holiday season.
As well as finding out a bit more about Groot’s background, we also know how deep his powers go. Here’s the list:
- Superhuman strength
- Ability to quickly regenerate after enduring physical damage
- Plantlike form enables him to grow or reshape his limbs and root himself in place for enhanced stability
- Can emit glowing spores
This isn’t going to be the last time we see Groot merchandise in Walt Disney World, he’s set to appear in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind attraction at Epcot so there is surely more to come.
