ANAHEIM, CAL. - As part of Disney California Adventure’s “Summer of Heroes,” guests can now come face to face with Groot.
“People love him. They just want to run up and give him a hug,” said Ryan Gallego with Marvel Themed Entertainment.
The Guardians of the Galaxy character can be found in Hollywoodland near the new Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! attraction. He often shows up at the Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off events.
While the 7 ½ foot “gentle giant” is a creature of few words, he happily poses with visitors.
"Groot is unique in and of himself… and completely lovable,” Gallego said.
