Today, Disney+ announced that the latest Marvel Studios addition to their exciting summer lineup, I Am Groot, will launch on August 10. I Am Groot is a collection of five original shorts starring Baby Groot, everyone’s favorite little tree, and will feature several new and unusual characters. All five shorts will be available for viewers to watch upon launch.
There’s no guarding the galaxy from this mischievous toddler! So get ready as Baby Groot takes center stage in his very owns series, exploring his glory days growing up—and getting into trouble—among the stars. Drax the Destroyer will also appear in the series.
As of now, it is unknown if Dave Bautista will voice Drax in I Am Groot. Bautista was not a part of last year’s What If…? animated series as he was voiced by longtime voice actor Fred Tatasciore. Bautista later revealed that he wasn’t asked to do the voice work and would have done so, “Let’s start with I was never asked.” That said, I believe Bautista will be involved with this project.
Vin Diesel, who is the voice of Groot in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, voices Baby Groot. The writer/director is Kirsten Lepore, and the executive producers are Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, and James Gunn.
