The upcoming I Am Groot animated series at Disney+ will feature the early days of Groot growing up, but now fans know exactly when in the overarching Marvel Cinematic Universe it will take place.

Speaking to ComicBook, Head of Streaming, Television, and Animation at Marvel Studios Brian Winderbaum revealed that the upcoming five-episode series will take place between the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and the post-credits scene of the second film which shows Groot having already aged into a teenaged version of himself.

“It’s a narrow window, right? It takes place actually between the end of Guardians 2 and before the tag scene in Guardians 2. So, it’s in this narrow window where Groot [is] in that kind of post toddler stage of development,” Winderbaum said. “And it was something that really excited, James [Gunn] and also, James also knew [Kirsten Lepore]’s work and was excited about working with her as well.”

Of course, because the window of time with Groot being as small as he is in I Am Groot and the Guardians not being involved in any MCU events is small, the team behind the series had to find the perfect window to fit the series into, and it seems as if they did.

The official synopsis says that I Am Groot will look at Baby Groot’s “glory days growing up, and getting into trouble, among the stars.”Lepore, known for her animation and short film work, will be directing and executive producing the series.
