There is a key exchange between Groot and Rocket near the end of ‘Avengers: Infinity War‘ and we’ve got the translation of “I Am Groot” for you! The translation comes directly from James Gunn who shared the details on Twitter so you also know that the source knows what he’s talking about. While most of the readers of this site have likely already seen the film, we’re also aware that #ThanosDemandsYourSilence so we’ll give non-viewers a moment to jump back and out of the article.

Still with us? Good. So, the scene in question is right at the end of the film. This is where we’re watching Teen Groot fade away before Rocket’s eyes.

I’m not crying. You’re crying. That adds an entire layer of depth to the scene that you wouldn’t have been able to previously catch and is just soul-crushing.
