After several years since it was first announced, the first official trailer has been revealed for the upcoming Disney Plus series I Am Groot. The new show will focus on the titular character from the Guardians of the Galaxy film franchise as he experiences a variety of new and unique adventures set across the galaxy. Vin Diesel, who voiced the character for the feature films, will be returning to voice the character for this new series. He’ll be joined by Bradley Cooper as Rocket the Raccoon and further familiar characters are also expected to appear. So for fans that were worried that this series might not be relevant enough for those who’ve been keeping up with the films – they should be able to put their fears to rest.
The below trailer was released following a panel at Comic-Con 2022. The panel focused on a number of upcoming animated projects from Marvel Studios.
With so many new films and shows in production, it’s certainly neat to see Groot get the spotlight once again.
Here’s the new trailer for the upcoming Disney Plus series I Am Groot:

The new animated series, which consists of five short episodes, was created by Marvel’s What If…? script coordinator and writer Ryan Little. He further returned to work as a writer for the upcoming show. This will be an exciting series to see, where fans will be able to see more of fan-favorite character Groot, and hopefully it will be a worthy predecessor to this year’s other Guardians of the Galaxy spin-off: The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special.
Fans will be able to stream I Am Groot via Disney Plus on August 10. With way less than a month to go, it fortunately won’t be much longer before fans can see the return of Groot. Stay tuned to ScreenGeek for any additional updates regarding the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise and I Am Groot as we have them.
