How ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Helped a Little Boy With Dyspraxia
We never know the full scale of how what we do can impact the lives of others.
This month marks one year since the release of “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which prompted Josh Dunlap, from Las Vegas, Nevada, to send Gunn a message concerning Dunlap’s son, Sawyer. Sawyer, 4, lives with a developmental coordination disorder called dyspraxia.
Sawyer connected with the character Groot from the movie, and Dunlap credits the character and the film with helping Sawyer learn to communicate better and eventually enter speech therapy.

Touched by Dunlap’s words, Gunn shared the message on his Facebook page and said, “I love making movies because of stories like this. Thank you.”
