Earlier this week, we finally saw the first full trailer for Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy—a film that’s more or less like Star Wars meets The Avengers, starring a snarky Han Solo type, a green lady, a talking badass tree and a talking, gun-toting raccoon with anger issues. Reactions were energetic but mixed—some were preemptively calling the film a Star Wars for our generation, while others said the trailer (and, thus, the film) felt like it was simply stitched together from elements of other, classic films. While we won’t know either way until the film’s release, one thing was for certain—the film was woefully short on Rocket Raccoon’s voice (provided by Bradley Cooper) and his mega-violent ways.
Thus, Marvel and Disney have released a behind the scenes character profile for Rocket Raccoon, which offers a brief breakdown on the character, his anger issues, and yes, finally shows him in action and allows you to hear his voice.
As for how it all comes together (assuming it does), we’ll have to wait until Guardians of the Galaxy gets its August 1, 2014 release later this year.
What do you think of the Rocket Raccoon video?
