We’ve already discussed how much people love the character of Groot from the popular Guardians Of The Galaxy films and if you missed our Official Trailer post just click HERE to be up to speed. The series of shorts called “I Am Groot” begin streaming today in an episodic fashion and I’ve reminded all about the light premise and casting down below the new artwork.
It’s without question that when Baby Groot first made a full-on appearance in “Guardians of The Galaxy 2”, the fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe couldn’t get enough of him. Now, thanks to the magic of Disney+ and its continued expansion of the characters we are getting a series of shorts in “I Am Groot”. Now the newbies might not know that this is all that Groot says and each time he speaks it means something different and only Rocket and Thor seem to understand him. The Official Trailer premiered today at the San Diego Comic-Con and you can check it out down below along with some additional information.
