I am Groot may not be the next Avengers-level adventure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), but at least it looks downright adorable in its first trailer, which was revealed during the animation panel of Marvel Studios at San Diego Comic-Con 2022. This fun collection of five stars from the original shorts guardians of the galaxy‘s Baby Groot as he interacts with other equally cute alien creatures. Along with bringing some levity to Marvel’s action-packed cinematic universe, the company says I am Groot will explore various antics the main character found themselves in growing up.
Of course, Vin Diesel returned for the mini-episodes to lend his groundbreaking voice talents as the fan-favorite talking tree. See some of the hijinks in the first I am Groot trailer below.
