During Disney’s Annual Shareholder meeting, a small montage video highlighted some of this year’s newest films and series. One of the upcoming Disney+ Originals shown briefly during the montage video was Marvel Studios, “I Am Groot”.
This series of shorts was initially announced during Disney’s Investor Day in 2020 and follows Baby Groot’s glory days growing up, and getting into trouble, among the stars. But since then, we’ve not really heard too much about this short series.
The new footage (it was only about 1 second!) shows a young Groot, just looking up and smiling.
This new footage confirms that the series of shorts will be using live-action animation, as it looks identical to how Groot looked during “Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2”.
A teenage Groot will be appearing in the upcoming film, “Thor: Love and Thunder”, which arrives in cinemas on 8th July 2022.
This new series of shorts is going to be directed by executive producer Kirsten Lepore.
No release date has yet been confirmed for “I Am Groot”, but it will be arriving on Disney+ in 2022.
In the meantime, if you want to see more of “Groot”, both “Guardians Of The Galaxy” films are available now on Disney+.
Are you excited about “I Am Groot”?
