Yesterday, Marvel shared the news that Oreo, the racoon who modelled as Rocket from “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2” has sadly passed away at the age of 10 years due to a short illness.
The news was confirmed by Quinta Layla, who posted a status on from her Facebook group, containing a heartwarming obituary and some adorable photos of Oreo.
Oreo was crucial to bringing Rocket, the funny, genetically altered mammal voiced by Bradley Cooper to life, by capturing his behaviour and movement. Oreo even attended the World premiere of “Guardians of the Galaxy”, accompanied by the film director James Gunn in 2014.
Rest in peace Oreo you loveable racoon and our condolences to Quinta Layla.
