A chapter of I Am Groot it can be seen sooner than we thought in theaters
next August, Disney+ will premiere the animated series of Marvel Studios I Am Groot, a series of short-form videos starring the ever lovable Baby Groot. Like any MCU series, it seemed like I Am Groot would only be available on Disney +, but it has now been revealed that the series will be played exclusively in theaters in the The Captain Theater in Los Angeles (cinemas owned by The Walt Disney Company).
Specifically, an episode of the series, entitled “Magnum Opus”which will be projected before the functions of Thor: Love and Thunder from July 18, for a week. It will only be shown before a screening of the film, specifically at the 4:15 p.m. showings on July 18 and 19, and the 1:00 p.m. showings on July 20-24, so if you’re thinking of traveling to Hollywood, this is certainly a good reason for it. You can see the official poster of the short film appearance below.

about the series
The details about I Am Groot have generally not been confirmed by Marvel Studios. Unlike other series like Moon Knight, Wandavision or Ms Marveland it doesn’t seem like he has much of an influence on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as the director of Guardians of the Galaxy and series director James Gunn has previously said that the shorts are not part of Guardians.
“They are animated shorts, so they are not necessarily part of the Guardians saga”confirmed the director of Guardians and producer of I Am Groot, James Gunn, on Twitter earlier this summer. adding that they are “canonical in themselves, I think.”
So far, Groot is the only character confirmed to appear in the series, but the previously released storyboard suggested that another of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Drax, could appear in it. Drax, like some of the other Guardians, also appeared in What If…? and it looks like he could also appear in the Groot series of shorts.
The Serie I Am Groot joins What If…? as Marvel Studios animated offeringswho will soon be joined Marvel Zombies, Spider-Man: Freshman Year and X-Men ’97.
I Am Groot reaches the platform Disney+ August 10. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 It will hit theaters on May 5, 2023, and the galactic superhero team’s Christmas special still has release dates even though it will do so this year. We’ll see if the next San Diego Comic Con shows us any interesting advance.
