Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 James Gunn clipped a clip of Rocket’s character test as a child, and another of Rocket’s childhood friend, the bunny.
Gann has shared the two clips from Framestore via Twitter, A company that assisted with the visual effects for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and the first clip is only about 8 seconds long, and features baby versions of Rocket and Layla playing before he gets up and walks towards the camera.

We’ve seen little Rocket in the shows of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 previous publicity stunts, and we knew from the first movie that he was subjected to a set of experiences that turned him into the Rocket we know.
The second segment features Rocket’s childhood friend and roommate Fleur the Rabbit, played by Michaela Hoover in the film. This clip is even more disturbing because the cute bunny has mechanical spider legs, a mechanical muzzle over her mouth, and antennae.
