How to Say “I Am Groot” in Different Languages

By Sarah Sterling

Marvel Studios’ I Am Groot debuts today on Disney+ with five brand-new shorts featuring our favorite Flora colossus from The Guardians of the Galaxy films: Groot! To celebrate, and to take you one step closer to becoming Vin Diesel (who famously recorded Groot’s signature line in over 15 languages), here is your guide on how to say “I Am Groot” in a variety of languages! See how many you can memorize and impress your friends with:

Danish: “Jeg er Groot”

A gif of full-size adult Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy. Groot is being booked by the Nova Corp and they are analyzing him on a large high-tech screen. On the left it says his name and some additional information about him that is hardly discernable. Groot peers towards the camera and approaches slowly to get a closer look.

French: “Je s'appelle Groot”

A gif of baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2. He is in a cave-like atmosphere and stands in front of a control box with two red buttons and two large levels. He looks up at Rocket, who is offscreen, and then looks down at the control box and points at one of the red buttons. Rocket’s hands appear on-screen, motioning that he is pointing towards the wrong red button.

German: “Ich bin Groot”

A gif of Baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2. Groot is dancing by himself while a battle rages behind him. Large tentacles from a monster can be seen writhing around in the back left corner and a large hoop that is on fire crosses the scene. Baby Groot is paying no attention to the chaos and dances across the screen.

Hawaiian: “‘O wau ‘o Groot”

A gif of adult Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy. He is in the jail compound and large flying robots circle around him before he screams into the camera and flickering lights illuminate his menacing face.

Italian: “Sono Groot”

Teenage Groot from the post credits scene of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2. He is sitting on his bed in his room which is covered in large vines and moss. He looks disgruntled and plays a game on a handheld device.

Japanese: “Watashi wa Gurūtodesu” 私はグルートです

A gif of Baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2. He is running towards the camera, away from a large pulsing red and blue brain. A small box can be seen attached to the brain—an explosive that Baby Groot has placed there. He is running away from the inevitable explosion.

Latin: “Ego sum Groot”

A gif of Baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2. Baby Groot is dancing and getting really into some music as a battle happens behind him. A large tentacle monster thrashes Drax around behind him, but he pays no attention to it and keeps on grooving.

Polish: “Jestem Groot”

A gif from Guardians of the Galaxy where adult Groot is leaning over a large decorative fountain and letting a spout of water shoot into his mouth. Rocket is front left of the scene and looks over at Groot with an annoyed expression on his face.

Portuguese: “Eu sou Groot”

A gif of teenage Groot from Avengers: Infinity War. Backlit by the light of a dying star, Groot has attached his branched hands to two halves of Thor’s axe, Stormbreaker, and has fused the two pieces into one. He slowly lifts the axe into the air triumphantly.

Samoan: “O a‘u o Groot”

A gif of Baby Groot being dragged around by an alien lizard creature. Baby Groot is looking at camera with a terrified look on his face and his left arm is holding onto the back of a slimy reptilian creature that is pink, blue, and grey in color and running quickly along a corridor.

Spanish: “Yo soy Groot”

A gif of Baby Groot dancing. His eyes are closed as if he’s experiencing pure bliss and he swings his tiny arms around from side to side. Behind him, a body hurtles towards him and the camera, but he doesn’t see or hear it coming.

Swahili: “Mimi ni Groot”

A gif of Baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2. He is standing on a glass pane and two alien lizard creature approach him from the left. He quickly punches one of them in the face and then spins towards camera in a huff, clearly riled up from the experience.
