A new Marvel 2022 toy wave from collectible producer Hot Toys is creating hopes of an I Am Groot early release date announcement coming. The upcoming series serves as a spin-off of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, centering solely on the fan-favorite titular character. I Am Groot is being described as an anthology animated show that will follow Baby Groot as he grows up in the galaxy and goes on adventures with new and unusual characters frequently getting him into trouble.
Development on I Am Groot was first announced in December 2020 during the Disney Investor Day with Adventure Time alum Kirsten Lepore attached to direct the series and Guardians of the Galaxy writer/director James Gunn attached to produce. Though star Vin Diesel hasn’t been officially cast for the show, he has teased what’s to come from the Disney+ project, including an exploration of Groot’s home on Planet X. With production on I Am Groot having begun in late 2021, audiences may be getting an exciting announcement for the series in the near future.
As the new year is officially underway, Hot Toys has unveiled their planned Marvel 2022 wave of collectibles all tied to soon-to-be-released MCU projects. Included alongside Moon Knight, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder is that of I Am Groot, teasing the possibility of an early release date announcement coming for the series. See their announcement below:
It may not come as much of a surprise that I Am Groot could be premiering sometime in the near future given Gunn confirmed on Twitter in December that it is scheduled for sometime this year. What is interesting about the Marvel 2022 toy wave is the placement of the show within the lineup of upcoming MCU releases. I Am Groot is labeled within the video right after the Oscar Isaac-led Moon Knight, which was recently revealed to be premiering on Disney+ on March 30.
Though it could be construed I Am Groot‘s placement in the Hot Toys Marvel 2022 toy wave video stems from grouping together the shows and movies, its spot between Moon Knight and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness could point towards a release date coming from Marvel in the near future. Given the studio is currently without any titles until Moon Knight and the entire month of April remains open until the Benedict Cumberbatch sequel, it would make sense for the animated show to premiere between the two titles to keep the MCU ball rolling. Only time will tell when audiences will finally feast their eyes upon I Am Groot on Disney+.
