But only for a very exclusive, limited run.

I Am Groot Thor Love and Thunder MCU

A short from the upcoming MCU series I Am Groot is set to play on the big screen with Thor: Love and Thunder in an exclusive limited run.

Marvel Studios continues to release some new original content on Disney Plus along with their theatrical releases such as Thor: Love and Thunder. In 2022 alone, MCU shows such as Moon Knight and Ms. Marvel have already made waves, and the next series titled She-Hulk is also set to release next month. One of the other upcoming original series will be I Am Groot, which will feature some special shorts centered on the beloved Guardian of the Galaxy voiced by Vin Diesel.

Now, fans excited to get a glimpse at the upcoming I Am Groot series will have a chance to get an early peek at one of the new shorts. Titled “Magnum Opus,” the new MCU Disney Plus short will be screening exclusively at The El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, CA from July 18-24 before select showings of the new Thor.

There’s more Groot in the MCU where that came from.

With the new Thor in theaters, I Am Groot coming out, and The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special also on the way for Disney Plus this year, Groot is leaving a big impression on MCU fans once again. That of course doesn’t even factor in the long-anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which will hit theaters next summer.

Here is the synopsis for the newest MCU film, Thor: Love and Thunder:

The film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.

Thor: Love and Thunder is now playing in theaters. Meanwhile, I Am Groot is set to premiere on Disney Plus on August 10, 2022.
