As part of the development of the fourth phase of Marvel Comics movies, the creators decided to make not only movies but also multi-part projects. Viewers have already seen several new shows developing the universe, and in 2020 it became known that the upcoming projects include animated films. One of them will be I Am Groot, a collection of short films about the character Groot. Viewers know him as a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy and a partner of Jet Coon, but the character has a long history and in the comics appeared much earlier than the events shown in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. The release date for the I Am Groot series will be in 2022, with work beginning in August 2021.

Groot is a tree-hugging alien. Marvel Comics readers were first introduced to him as an invader who came to Earth to capture humans and conduct experiments on them. The venture was unsuccessful, as Groot was killed by an attack from termites released on him, but being a plant, the character was later able to regenerate from a branch. For a long time, Groot’s fate was unknown, but he later appeared as a member of the Shield and worked for Nick Fury on the side of humanity. In later comics, the hero became Rocket’s partner and ended up in the Guardians of the Galaxy. The show’s release date for I Am Groot is 2022.
What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
Viewers saw that in the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie, Groot sacrificed himself to save his friends. In subsequent installments, he appeared as a young plant in a pot, but it has been announced that Groot will appear as an adult in the new Guardians of the Galaxy 3 movie. James Gunn, who directed it, revealed that the film will be the final film for the team and this is the last time the characters will get together. Viewers were upset by the fact that Groot would reappear as an adult, which may have been the reason for the release of this character’s solo feature, which will introduce him as a child. The release date for the I Am Groot series is 2022.
According to the creators, the upcoming series is a set of separate stories about Groot. In each series, he will have new adventures with already known and new characters from the universe, and what the stories will have in common is that all of Groot’s companions will make him uncomfortable. It is known that in one of the episodes the hero will return to his home planet, the details of other episodes are not disclosed. The show is directed by Kirsten Lepore, Vin Diesel will once again return to voice the character. The cartoon is planned as a photorealistic animation, the number of episodes is unknown and the release date is 2022.
