I am Groot Plot
I Am Groot, an upcoming American animated short film series based on the Marvel Comics character Groot, was made by Ryan Little for the Disney+ streaming service. Little serves as the series’ chief writer, and Kirsten Lepore is the show’s director. The show is made by Marvel Studios. Each short in the series follows Baby Groot as he develops in the cosmos and embarks on adventures with strange and new individuals that land him in hot water. Characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe are present (MCU).
I am Groot Cast and Crew
The main cast members of the series are listed below with their respective descriptions below:
Vin Diesel as Baby Groot: A member of the Guardians of the Galaxy who is a tree-like humanoid.
Bradley Cooper as Rocket: A member of the Guardians who is a genetically modified raccoon bounty hunter and a master of weapons and military tactics.
James Gunn, the creator, and director of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, announced in April 2021 that the television series would be animated and that he would serve as an executive producer. The series’ director and executive producer, Kirsten Lepore, was revealed during the Disney+ Day celebration in November 2021. The head writer of that series, A. C. Bradley, announced at the time that Ryan Little, a writer and script coordinator for What If…?, was writing for I Am Groot.
Lepore’s participation as a writer was confirmed in June 2022, when it was determined that the series would consist of five shorts. The following month, Little’s status as the show’s creator and lead writer was officially verified. Along with Gunn and Lepore, executive producers for Marvel Studios include Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, and Brad Winderbaum.
I am Groot Episodes
I Am Groot is reported to include five mini shorts. We’d also like to point out that, as of July 23, 2022, two titles of the mini-episodes which are not in order are revealed as “Magnum Opus,” and “Groot Takes a Bath.” The official synopsis of the episode, Magnum Opus, states, “Inside the Eclector’s Quadrant, Baby Groot gathers various items to draw the Guardians of the Galaxy, later causing an explosion inside one of the ship’s rooms.” Rocket finds Baby Groot trying to fix a blown-up hole and receives the drawing. Another explosion causes Rocket to be almost sucked out of the ship, only to be saved by Baby Groot. ” The exact episode titles and synopsis for the rest of the upcoming shorts cannot be confirmed.
The five animated shorts will each focus on a distinct period in Groot’s youth. The story of “I Am Groot” will follow Baby Groot as he travels the galaxy independently of the Guardians, meeting new people and encountering dangerous situations. So, viewers should also keep an eye out for details on the series’ episode summaries that will be available once all the episodes are released on the streaming platform. Additionally, rather than a weekly release, all 5 episodes are said to be made accessible for streaming on the same day. The panel also disclosed that “I Am Groot” will return with more episodes at a later time after the initial five animated shorts debut in August.
