"I'm excited to take the very cute, very small Groot and completely remove him from the comfort zone of the Guardians of the Galaxy (which is already kind of limited, comfort wise)," Hastings told ComicBook.com. "He's stranded in an extremely strange land and must find a way back home, with no way for anyone to understand him."

The May debut of "I Am Groot" of course corresponds with the release of Marvel Studios' "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2," which arrives in theaters May 5.
