As part of Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, another infamous character, a tree-shaped humanoid who only says “I am Groot,” is getting a new animated series. As an essential part of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, Groot was voiced by Vin Diesel, and it was confirmed at the beginning of this month that he would be reprising the role of Groot for the animated series.
The series will consist of 5 shorts, meaning 5 short movies. The length of the movies/episodes is not disclosed yet, but we have other crucial information such as the I am Groot release date and where you can watch it.
Is I Am Groot released?
Don’t worry. You are not late. I am Groot is not released yet. The release date of the series was announced only 10 days ago. It turns out we will be watching the new show on August 10. As far as we know, the shorts will not be released weekly, so we will have the chance to binge-watch them in one sitting.
Unfortunately, there isn’t an official trailer for the series yet though we expect it to come in a few weeks.
Where can I watch I Am Groot?
I am Groot will be available only on Disney Plus. The platform houses all the recent Marvel shows, such as Ms. Marvel (whose 1st episode was released on June 8) and Moon Knight (released weekly from March 30 to May 4). The new series, which will focus on the life and adventures of Groot, will not be an exception.
A Disney Plus subscription is $7.99 a month or $79.99 a year. The platform offers a 7-day free trial for its new customers.

What did Groot mean by I Am Groot?
There may still be some of you who still wonder where Groot comes from and what kind of an alien it is, or what the infamous phrase that it is known by means. Well, Groot is from a flora colossi race, which are tree-like aliens from Planet X. Their language is tough to understand because of the stiffness of their voice box, which only lets Groot say the same phrase. That said, whenever Groot says “I am Groot,” it conveys several things. However, only a few people who know Groot can understand.
It has been known that Groot is hyper-intelligent. As we saw multiple times in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies and Avengers Infinity War and Endgame, Groot can communicate with the Guardians and even have reasonable discussions with them, though.
Is Groot a boy or a girl?
Groot’s sex is not certainly known, although many think it is a male because of its actions and the way its voice sounds. We don’t know if Groot undergoes any form of sexual reproduction. Baby Groot, for example, was a product of asexual reproduction as it was created from a cutting of the original Groot.
Even if Groot were a male or female, that would mean different things for a plant as it has various cultural connotations for us that do not mean anything in the plant world. Plants can also reproduce when the male plant produces pollen, and the plant embryo is created in the female plant tissue. But this is where the similarities end. We don’t know if Groot is the male plant or the female plant. It was never stated that Groot was the last of its kind, so maybe we will see a suitable mate in the future and understand what its sex is.
