I AM GROOT "Magnum Opus" Short Will Premiere In Theaters Next Week (But There's An Annoying Catch)

It's been confirmed that a new I Am Groot short will premiere next week, but it will be getting a very limited run...in a single theater! Find more details on where you can find it after the jump.

News

Los Angeles' El Capitan Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard has confirmed that an I Am Groot short will play in front of Thor: Love and Thunder between July 18 - July 24. 

It's unclear whether this is an episode of the upcoming Disney+ series or a newly created short, though we're guessing it's probably the former given what a limited release this is. So, if you live in Hollywood, you're in luck. As for the rest of us, we're obviously going to have to wait. 

If we had to hazard a guess, Marvel Studios is looking to build hype for the series and will likely also premiere "Magnum Opus" during its San Diego Comic-Con panel next Saturday. That will run for 90 minutes in Hall H, so there will be plenty of time to put the spotlight on Baby Groot while teasing a number of other upcoming projects heading our way in Phase 4 and beyond.

As for this newly released poster, we now have a better idea of the sort of hijinks the sentient tree will be getting up to. We'd imagine this is indicative of the animation style as well. 

I Am Groot is a collection of five original shorts starring Baby Groot, everyone’s favourite little tree, and will feature several new and unusual characters. All five shorts will be available for viewers to watch upon launch, and the expectation is that the show will feature photorealistic animation more akin to regular VFX than a cartoon.

"There’s no guarding the galaxy from this mischievous toddler," reads the official synopsis. "So get ready as Baby Groot takes center stage in his very own series, exploring his glory days growing up - and getting into trouble - among the stars."

Vin Diesel, who is the voice of Groot in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, is the voice of Baby Groot. The writer/director is Kirsten Lepore, and the executive producers are Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum and James Gunn.

I Am Groot is set to premiere on Disney+ on August 10, just one week before She-Hulk: Attorney at Law also debuts on the streaming service.
