There has been a lot of arguing and speculation over Guardians of The Galaxy's beloved character, Groot. *Spoilers ahead!*

At the end of the first movie, it appears as though Groot has sacraficed himself in order to save the other guardians. But then a tiny piece of him begins to grow back? So is baby Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 actually Groot-reborn?

Director James Gunn finally shed some light on the Groot situation. The Twitter feud got heated after fans continued bugging Gunn about the certainty of Groot's character.

Some fans refuse to believe that this is Groot's fate, but Gunn continues to shut down fans with very real proof.

And there we have it folks, Baby Groot is indeed a new (son of) Groot, so lets embrace him and love him just as much as we loved the original Groot from the first Guardians film.

RIP GROOT – GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN.
