The days are growing longer and the weather is warming, and you know what Groot thinks about it? "My name is Groot!" And that essentially translates to "Marvel Studios' I Am Groot will be available on Disney+ soon!" 

The series of original shorts, which follow Baby Groot as he grows up and gets into mischief among the stars, will premiere on Disney+ on August 10, 2022. Check out the fresh new series poster above, which shows a pretty peaceful little Baby Groot just chilling out with his favourite tunes.

I Am Groot, which was announced in December 2020, would deliver bite-sized servings of the MCU fandom's favourite walking plant in his solo film. The project will be directed by Ryan Little, a Canadian film director who also acts as the series' chief writer, with Kirsten Lepore, of Adventure Time fame, in the director's chair.

Groot has swiftly become one of the most popular characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) since his appearance in the first Guardians of the Galaxy film. When the world met his pocket-sized counterpart, Baby Groot, in 2017's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, his popularity skyrocketed.

For many, the thought of finally learning when this tiny guy will get his own show will be thrilling. The announcement does not reveal much, but there are a few little tidbits that may be gleaned from it.

One of the more intriguing aspects of this announcement is the emphasis on music, which is a recurring theme throughout the Guardians franchise. If the headphones atop Groot's head in this picture aren't just for show, perhaps audiences will be treated to a brand-new rocking soundtrack, functioning as an Awesome Mix Vol 2.5 before they get the full 3.0 version in next year's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Another intriguing part of this announcement is the release date, as it's unknown whether this will be a weekly or all-at-once release. August is shaping up to be a busy month on Diseny+, with Andor and She-Hulk both kicking out their runs in the same month. So, if I Am Groot is set to release every week, it may get lost in the shuffle when its bigger cousins release at the same time.
