If you've been waiting for the I Am Groot release date, we've got good news for you. It's finally here, and ready to deliver what appear to be the lowest of low-stakes adventures in the MCU to date. Also, if you're wondering if I Am Groot is in the MCU? We've gotten mixed messages.
Release date and time: I Am Groot arrives on Disney Plus (opens in new tab), starting at 3 a.m. ET. on Wednesday (August 10).
Cast: Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper and James Gunn
Director: Kirsten Lepore
Running time: About 20 minutes
I Am Groot, a series of five animated shorts, shows us a peek of Groot's life in between the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and one of the post-credits scenes for that same movie. In essence, we're seeing Groot's post-toddler days, between him being a baby and being an adolescent.
Groot, as you would expect, is voiced by Vin Diesel. The shorts will also feature the voices of Bradley Cooper and James Gunn.
Making matters better, Kirsten Lepore (who was animation director for Marcel the Shell with Shoes on) wrote and directed these shorts. In short (pardon the pun), I Am Groot looks to provide warmth and fun, and a break from the chaotic MCU shenanigans.

I Am Groot trailer
In the first I Am Groot trailer, we see young Groot tower over a group of tiny four-eyed blue alien creatures and say — you guessed it — "I Am Groot." And, surprisingly, they turn their weapons against him. You'll never guess what happens next.
