Guardians Of The Galaxy Director James Gunn, Just Hanging Out With A Raccoon

Preparations are underway for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy right now, with production due to start later this month. As yet, we’ve not received any word on who will be voicing Rocket Raccoon. This is, perhaps, the one unanswered question about the film that generates more discussion than any other.

We did hear a little of how the character is going to be created, visually and technically. Marvel producer Victoria Alonso explained:

You can’t do any motion capture with a raccoon – they won’t let you put the suit on [laughs]. But we will do rotomation, probably, for some of the behavior.

My guess is that they’re doing this now because I don’t really know why else James Gunn would be hanging out with a raccoon and posting this picture to Twitter.

So, if they’re rotomating this chap, are these the basic dimension of Rocket? He’s short.
