– Marvel Studios is facing production delays due to labor strikes, affecting several upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe projects.
– Projects like "Loki" and "I Am Groot" have already been completed and are ready for release.
– A surprise trailer for "I Am Groot" season 2 is released, revealing a sneak peek of the next adventures of the beloved Guardians of the Galaxy character.
– "I Am Groot" season 2 is set to debut on September 6, 2023, a month before the release of "Loki" season 2 in October.
– "I Am Groot," "Loki," and "Marvel Studios' What If...?" are the only three MCU shows confirmed to have a second season due to their kid-friendly and easily continued nature.
– Marvel Studios has made changes to Phase 5 of their plans due to ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA labor strikes, resulting in production halts.
– "I Am Groot" aligns with Disney's child-friendly content branding and offers primarily isolated, episodic storytelling, making it easier to continue.
– Unlike "Loki" season 2, "I Am Groot" has a minimal impact on the overall Multiverse Saga storytelling and is suitable for both MCU fans and kids.
