Move over, baby Grogu, the original cute green (and brown) baby is back!
San Diego Comic Con 2022 has begun and so we have new trailers for a host of upcoming shows and movies, the latest is the first trailer for ‘I Am Groot’, a new short series that will follow Baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy.
Described by IMDb as “[a] series of shorts featuring the seedling Groot as well as several new and unusual characters,“The series appears to take place shortly before or after Guardians of the Galaxy Volume II, when Baby Groot was still a baby. The series will include five original shorts and begin streaming August 10 on Disney+.
The only thing confirmed about the cast is that Vin Diesel is reprising his role as Groot, as he has done for most Marvel Cinematic Universe media associated with the character. No confirmation as to what other Guardians or MCU characters will appear, if any. It appears to be a somewhat standalone series in the vein of Baymax, mostly following Groot on adventures like encountering Lilliputian creatures that he can feed with his leaves. Still, hopefully we’ll at least get a voice from the Guardians cast, perhaps as a way to show Groot’s family from their perspective.
One thing is for sure, I will be watching day one and until then I will be eagerly awaiting the opportunity see my boyfriend.
