The new Marvel animated show includes five shorts of Groot’s life. It’s time for us all to say I Am Groot once again!
If you had said to me ten years ago that the world would fall in love with a walking, talking tree, I’d have slapped you around the head for being silly. But that’s exactly what happened when ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ made it big for Marvel Studios. The character of Groot was one that everyone fell in love with. We laughed at his antics. We cried when he died, sacrificing himself to save his friends. And how we cheered when he came back at the end, in a baby form. Voiced by Vin Diesel, we took him to our hearts.
At the San Diego Comic-Con, we were treated to the first look at his own animated series. It will include 5 shorts that will showcase different points in Groot’s life. Bath time, arts and crafts, playing dress-up but with a science fiction twist. And what’s more, Vin Diesel will be returning to voice the character once again in the Disney+ show. Let’s drop in on our favorite tree friend:
Each short follows Baby Groot as he grows up in the galaxy, going on adventures with new and unusual characters that get him into trouble.
MORE TO COME
It has also been announced that a further five more shorts of the series will be released at a later date that has yet to be confirmed. But considering that Bradley Cooper is also on board as the voice of Rocket Raccoon, it appears that we are in for some fun times ahead with the Disney+ animated series. And that can only be a good thing.
The series launches on August 10th, exclusively on Disney+
