Animation shorts from I Am Groot are coming to Disney+ in August 2022

Elsewhere on Twitter, “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn seemed to indicate that episodes of “I Am Groot” may not be entirely canonical within the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it. “They’re animated shorts,” he tweeted, “so not necessarily part of the Guardians saga.”

Since the MCU is now an ever-expanding multiverse, “I Am Groot” could very well take place in an alternate timeline, like the various stories in Marvel’s “What If…?” animated series last summer. This will be an important year for the Guardians; they recently had a new theme park, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, opened at Epcot at Disney World, and will then appear on screen in “Thor: Love and Thunder.”

Thor, of course, appeared in his own series of “Team Thor” mockumentary shorts, which are now considered part of the Marvel One-Shots series. And they can be a good point of comparison for “I Am Groot” because they’re just a funny bit of apocryphal facts that aren’t essential to MCU’s continuity.

Baby Groot made his on-screen debut at the end of the first movie “Guardians of the Galaxy” in 2014, and his appearance in “Guardians Vol. 2” came in mid-2017, meaning he’s older than the Porgs and Grogu ( also known as Baby Yoda ) from later “Star Wars” projects. After their appearance in ‘Love and Thunder’, however, the Guardians will take a page out of the ‘Star Wars’ playbook by appearing in their own Christmas special in December.

“I Am Groot” premieres on Disney+ on August 10, 2022.
