'I am Groot': Release date, plot details and all you need to know about Baby Groot live-action series
The new extension of the franchise, which is a series of shorts titled 'I am Groot', will chronicle the misadventures of Baby Groot
There has been a Marvel-ous explosion after what seems like eons of silence. As part of the Disney's Investor Day presentation, several new movies and shows were announced, along with some thrilling updates. We got to know that 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Vol 3 will release in 2023, and there will also be a 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Christmas-themed special, which will be filmed simultaneously. And that's not it, there will also be a new extension of the franchise, which is a series of shorts titled 'I am Groot', which will chronicle the misadventures of Baby Groot.
This will be a joy for fans, as they were rather distressed that Baby Groot grew up between the events of 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' and 'Avengers: Infinity War'.
'I am Groot' will release on Disney Plus, presumably in 2023 along with 'Guardians Of The Galaxy'.
We don't know exactly how long these films will be, or what kind of adventures Groot will find himself in. However, needless to say, there are a lot of possibilities. “A lot of times on the first movie we were like ‘are we even putting Groot in this movie?’ Because Sean [Gunn] plays Rocket on set, and he's so present as Rocket that you're very aware of Rocket as a character,” Guardians writer-director James Gunn previously explained in a 2017 interview. “The guy playing Groot was a stand-in on the last movie and so we just kind of always forgot he was there. He doesn't talk very much, so you're doing all these scenes and when we have the scenes in the movie where they turn to Groot and Groot's like, ‘Why are you forgetting me?’ That's really what we felt like while we were shooting the first film.
“I think also, the whole personality of Groot and who he was, it was there on the page and then you forget about it while you were shooting the first movie,” Gunn had also said. “But now everyone knows Groot so well that we have much larger awareness, me and the cast, of a baby Groot being there at all times. And him being one of the members in the scene... I think he's a better-written character than the first Groot in some ways. Not that he was poorly written at all, but I think he's just more complete character.”
Vin Diesel will presumably return to voice Groot. Diesel is best known for playing Dominic Toretto in the 'Fast & Furious' franchise, and is one of the highest-grossing actors of all time. He has also acted in 'The Pacifier' and 'Find Me Guilty'.
There are no trailers, yet. Stay tuned!
