I am Groot is an upcoming American animated series by Marvel Studios. It is a short series that will cover the youth of the Marvel Character, Groot. Groot was first seen in 2014 and Guardians of the Galaxy. I am Groot is produced by Disney +. It will come under the phase four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
This series may not have any kind of link to the future characters of Marvel Cinematic Studios. It is just a five episode short series that is being made with the only purpose of fun and entertainment. It will cover the story of baby Groot. Groot is just a side character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and belongs to the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Till now we have only seen Groot saying ‘I am Groot’. We can hope that this series will show us more of Groot. This article will cover everything you need to know about this upcoming animated series by Marvel.
I am Groot Release Date
I am Groot was announced in December 2020. It will be an animated series like What if. The production for this animated series began in August 2021.
I am Groot is scheduled to premiere on August 10, 2022. It will have a total of five short episodes. It will premiere soon after the release of Marvel’s upcoming movie, Thor: Love and Thunder.
I am Groot Cast and Characters
Kirsten Lepore is directing this upcoming Marvel show. Lepore with Ryan Little wrote this show.
Vin Diesel is returning to give the voice to baby Groot. Groot was first introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the movie, Guardians of the Galaxy. He was living with a racoon like character named Rocket. Groot has a tree like physique. He doesn’t speak anything else than I am Groot. Marvel has never really focused on this small character but his presence though mattered.
Groot can raise his branches according to his wish. He can grow into a large sized tree and can easily cause destruction but for a short while. Once he enlarges his branches, then his powers seem to weaken. He has always helped the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Groot also played an important role in Avengers: Infinity War. He helped Thor to rebuild his hammer of thunder. He even featured in the highest grossing movie of Marvel, Avengers: Endgame.
Vin Diesel charged a huge amount to give the voice of Groot. He just spoke a single line but his fee was more than the other cast members. He is returning to give his voice to baby Groot in this upcoming animated show. We can expect that despite being a short animated series this show might have a high budget due to the presence of Vin Diesel.
I am Groot Storyline Speculation
There is no official synopsis or summary about the show, I am Groot. It is supposed to release in 2022 along with other Marvel shows like Moon Knight, Ms Marvel, She Hulk, etc.
It will be a short five episode series. The whole concept will be animated like what we saw in What If. What If got a good response from the audience due to its professional VFX and animation. We can expect that I am Groot will be visualised as What if to a great extent.
The writer of I am Groot is the same writer who wrote Marvel’s What If..? What If was highly appreciated by the audience and looking at it’s fame and success, Marvel Studios have considered giving it a new season.
Marvel has never shown us the past and life of Groot. We just know him through rocket and Guardians of the Galaxy. This short animated series by Marvel will focus on the early life and youth of Groot. We will see the baby Groot growing up and setting on different adventures throughout the galaxy.
We can see various creatures and animated characters in this series who may be an ally or foes to baby Groot. It will show us how Groot gets into trouble and uses his wit to escape through all the mess.
We don’t what timeline this show will be based on. If we are considering the youth of Groot then maybe it may be set before the Guardians of the Galaxy released in 2014. But groot was seen as a teenage in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Volume 2. So, it can also cover the life of Groot after the events of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 that released in 2017.
This short series by Marvel will focus solely on all fun and entertainment with light hearted comedy.
I am Groot Trailer
We don’t have any official information regarding the trailer release of I am Groot. Since there are only a few months left before the release of this animated show. We can expect Marvel to drop the trailer of this animated short series anytime. Maybe this upcoming show is under some final processing and Marvel Studios might release the trailer as soon as its done.
