Marvel Studios has unveiled the first poster for the animated series I am Groot, featuring the beloved character Baby Groot. The poster confirms that the series of original shorts will premiere on Disney+ on August 10. The decision to give Groot his own show reflects the popularity of the character among Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) fans.
I Am Groot is a spin-off of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, featuring the character Baby Groot. Groot is a Flora colossus who initially appears as a companion to Rocket Racoon. In the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie, Groot joins forces with the other Guardians to retrieve the Orb. Towards the end of the film, Groot sacrifices himself to protect his friends. However, Rocket manages to save a part of Groot and replants it, leading to the birth of Baby Groot.
Fans of Baby Groot will be thrilled to see him in his own series, titled I Am Groot. The show is highly anticipated, and here is everything we currently know about it.
