Since that announcement, however, things have been relatively quiet surrounding the series. Until today.

In a promotional video on Twitter, Disney+ announced that the spinoff would be coming to the streaming platform in 2022.

2022 can’t come soon enough! See what’s in store for @DisneyPlus and get excited to stream all these and more next year.

In addition to I Am Groot, Disney+ also made several other major announcements about movies and series coming to the platform in 2022, including Free Guy, starring Ryan Reynolds.

I Am Groot will give MCU fans a look at Groot’s early life but there has not been confirmation at this point if the series will be based on Groot’s early life prior to the original Guardians of the Galaxy or if the series will be based on Baby Groot, who was seen in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017).

Here is Disney’s official description for I Am Groot:

I Am Groot features everyone’s favorite baby tree in a series of original shorts coming to Disney+.

Directed by James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy stars Chris Pratt (Peter Quill/Star-Lord), Vin Diesel (Groot), Bradley Cooper (Rocket Raccoon), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), and Dave Bautista (Drax). The popular series has a planned third film Guardians of the  Galaxy Vol. 3 expected to be released in 2023.
