SDCC 2022: WATCH: I Am Groot trailer arrives

July 22nd, 2022 by Marc Comments

All the way from SDCC we have the first look at the upcoming Marvel animated series, I Am Groot.

A series of five shorts from the mind of James Gunn, the series, Gunn warned a few weeks ago, isn’t necessarily canon to the rest of the MCU, saying: “They are animated shorts so not necessarily part of the Guardians saga.

“They’re canon to themselves, I’d think.”

Nonetheless, the animation looks gorgeous and, if nothing else, it’s going to be fun to see Groot on his homeworld and what that’s like. Probably. We’re still not sure.

UPDATE: There will be a further five shorts released later this year.

The series hits Disney+ on August 10th.

Here’s the trailer:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
