What You Need To Know:

I AM GROOT is a short-form animated comedy series on Disney Plus. Season Two of the Marvel streaming program takes place between GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOLUME 2 and 3. Five episodes focus on Groot, the tree-centric Marvel hero, as a child. Alone in the Guardians spaceship, Young Groot travels the galaxy, sometimes meeting strange alien creatures on different planets. Groot’s childlike wonder often cause chaos or get him into funny predicaments. His adventures range from meeting alien birds, to building a snowman from spacecraft metal, to experiencing the sensation of smell for the first time.

Season Two of I AM GROOT is a charming diversion aimed toward families. Young Groot is curious but is often motivated by his self-interest. For example, he destroys a flying ice cream truck in outer space, just to eat one ice cream bar. However, there are slivers of moral, redemptive values. For example, Groot cares for an alien baby bird and teaches it to survive. Some episodes retain the scatological humor and slapstick violence from the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY movies. MOVIEGUIDE® advises caution for younger children.

More Detail:

I AM GROOT is a short-form animated comedy series on Disney Plus. The Marvel streaming program takes place between GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOLUME 2 and 3. In the five episodes of Season Two, Groot appears in his tree form as a young bipedal child. Alone in the Guardians spaceship, Groot travels the galaxy, sometimes meeting other alien creatures. Groot’s curiosity and childlike wonder often causes chaos or gets him into funny predicaments.

Similar to season one, the second outing of I AM GROOT is a series of five minute “vignettes.” These episodes focus on Young Groot hanging out in the universe while the Guardians are noticeably absent. These adventures range from Groot meeting alien birds, to building a snowman from spacecraft metal, all the way to Groot experiencing the sensation of smell for the first time.

Unlike the movies, which are PG-13 affairs, I AM GROOT is focused on entertaining young children. The visuals are colorful, the slapstick comedy works, and Young Groot’s animation is charming. From a technical side, the series is a slam dunk.

Under a moral microscope, Season Two of I AM GROOT barely echoes a moral worldview. Young Groot is curious but is often motivated by his self-interest. For example, in one episode, he destroys a space ice cream truck in order to eat one ice cream bar. However, the program contains slivers of Christian values. In one episode, Groot cares for an alien bird, teaches it to survive, and says goodbye as it returns to its alien flock. In the fifth episode, a powerful fifth dimensional being named “the Watcher” tries to guide Groot in a dangerous pagan temple. Groot doesn’t recognize the Watcher, but the Watcher programs care in guiding Groot on his quest.

Regrettably, I AM GROOT retains some of the “dark” humor from the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY trilogy. Groot causes untold property damage, urinates inside a pagan alien temple, and destroys a robotic space ice cream truck. This series is not as violent as its source material, but it’s sometimes a little so it’s rated PG.

That said, Season Two of I AM GROOT is a charming diversion that is aimed mostly toward children. The program offers the values of child-like curiosity and caring for alien animals. However, some episodes retain the scatological humor and slapstick violence from the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY movies. So, MOVIEGUIDE® advises caution for younger children.
