Oh man, you thought the ending of Avengers: Infinity War was sad before. Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn is revealing the translation of Groot’s final words in Avengers: Infinity War.

Spoiler alert: Stop reading now if you’re one of the six people who have not yet seen the Marvel hit.

As you’ll recall, Groot is among the half of the world’s population who dissolve away as victims of Thanos’ Sudden Departure eco-cleansing scheme.

Meanwhile, Infinity War has racked up $1 billion at the box office globally, the fastest movie to ever do so.
