GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY News from James Gunn; Says Rocket Raccoon Is the Heart of the Movie | Collider
Speaking with HeyUGuys, Gunn revealed that filming on Guardians of the Galaxy begins at the end of June and he talked a bit about his approach to the sci-fi world of the film and how the finished product will differ from the concept art we’ve previously seen:
“I do think we’re very, very different from Star Wars. Some of the concept art that came out is under my tutelage, and some of it is before my tutelage…The Rocket that was by itself was an early version of my Rocket that I dealt with Charlie when developing. He doesn’t look so much like that anymore, but there’s a lot of similarities in that he’s more of a grounded, real little creature as opposed to a cartoonish thing.”
Speaking of Rocket Raccoon, Gunn talked about how integral the character is to the overall film:
“I’ve done a lot of studying with real raccoons, and we had real raccoons come in. We’ve done photography with them, I’ve played with raccoons, and fed raccoons, and dealt a lot with real raccoons to get some of the behaviour down, because it’s really, really important to me that Rocket Raccoon, who is the heart of the movie, is not a cartoon character, it’s not Bugs Bunny in the middle of The Avengers, it’s a real, little, somewhat mangled beast that’s alone. There’s no one else in the universe quite like him, he’s been created by these guys to be a mean-ass fighting machine.”
Gunn added that we will have to wait “a few weeks” to see who will be playing Rocket,
