Disney+ is all set to bring back fan-favorite Baby Groot for a second season of space lore in “I Am Groot”, releasing on September 6. A collection of five new animated shorts will bring the lovable and naughty tree-like character back to the screens for another assortment of adventures.
The much-anticipated second season follows Baby Groot accompanied by his trusted Guardians of the Galaxy crew, steering through the cosmos. This episodic journey forms part of the sprawling Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The much-adored movie voice behind Groot, Vin Diesel, will continue to do justice to the character in these adorable short animations. Additionally, Kirsten Lepore, the creative mind behind the screenplay and direction for the inaugural season, retains her role in the forthcoming episodes. The venture is produced by Marvel Studios, with pillars of the industry like Brad Winderbaum, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, and Kirsten Lepore lined up as executive producers.
The thrill-packed trailer for the upcoming season, unveiled on August 8, exhibits Baby Groot coming across diverse aliens and celestial bodies, along with recognizable faces from the broader Marvel universe. It also foreshadows the adversities Baby Groot is set to encounter, including a monstrous worm, a ruthless space pirate, and a ravishing plant.
