Groot may be all grown up in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but Disney+ still has plans for Baby Groot. We have one season of the I Am Groot shorts now streaming on Disney+, and now Marvel has dropped a new trailer for another batch of shorts featuring the baby tree.
Watch the trailer for Season 2 of I Am Groot:
We don’t exactly know where these stories fit into the Guardians canon, but they are mostly non-consequential with Baby Groot kind of just going through his own silly tasks.
Occasionally there will be an appearance from another Guardian like Rocket in the first season, but not even Bradley Cooper bothered to return to reprise the role. Who knows, maybe they could actually have an actor show up in the second season like Chris Pratt or Pom Klementieff. It would probably be a huge ask to have Zoe Saldana or Dave Bautista show up in make-up for just a few minutes of footage.
For now, James Gunn is closing the book on his Guardians trilogy to take over the DCU, but he does leave the door open for more GOTG stories, what with Rocket taking over the group and having a new roster of Guardians including Adam Warlock, Cosmo, and Kraglin.
We may have to wait a couple of years, but I am hoping Marvel somehow gets Edgar Wright to helm the next Guardians. Wright was originally set to direct Ant-Man before leaving, and it would be great if he could patch things up with Marvel and take on his own space opera.
I Am Groot Season 2 starts streaming on Disney+ on Sept. 6. The first season is now available to watch on the platform.
