Groot is the best. He’s the cutest, most cuddly tree baby ever. He’s also got some serious moves.
When he busts a groove, everyone knows it. Even though he’s not saying much, he always communicates with his eyes and dance moves.
Groot is just pure joy wrapped up in a tree-baby package.
And I can’t get enough of him.

With five beautifully rendered little films of five minutes each, the first year of Disney+ production shows the tree-boy learning to walk, meeting a diminutive alien civilization, engaging in a dance battle, taking an unusual bath, and starring in an awesomely sweet moment with another fellow Guardians member.
These are brief but precious glimpses into a rare side of the MCU: irreverent, inconsequential, and uncompromising.
As the so-called Phase 4 has made clear, it’s hard for the studio to keep on pleasing an audience already used to always waiting for big sagas.
Conversely, with the narrative weight of that past, it is almost impossible to provide limpid pockets of fun that do not recall, even if indirectly, the imminence of a massive cinematic event.
Within that context, I Am Groot inspires hope not only for rendering any MCU megalomania irrelevant but also for debuting a format that can give more of the films’ luxury supporting actors their chance to shine – free from the weight of narrative interconnectivity.
If handled sparingly and in the right way, this new endeavor could be the perfect snack to renew fans’ good faith sporadically in times of inevitable change.
Let Marvel allow itself to be more Groot!
