Baby Groot is finally back with some new adventures.

On Wednesday, Aug. 10, the streaming service will release the I Am Groot animated series featuring the beloved Guardians of the Galaxy character. The series directed by executive producer Kirsten Lepore will feature five shorts that will all debut at once. The story takes place after the events of James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

I Am Groot is “a series of original shorts exploring Baby Groot’s glory days growing up, and getting into trouble, among the stars.”

Additionally, the third episode of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series will hit Disney+ on the same day. The series is a mockumentary musical teen drama that follows a group of students at East High. It currently stars Olivia Rodrigo as Nini, Joshua Bassett as Ricky, Matt Cornett as E.J., and Sofia Wylie as Gina. Additionally, Julia Lester as Ashlyn, as well as Dara Reneé as Kourtney, and Frankie Rodriguez as Carlos.

“Season 3 is set at Camp Shallow Lake, a sleepaway camp in California, as the Wildcats and their fellow campers are primed for an unforgettable summer ripe with romance, curfew-less nights and a taste of the great outdoors,” reads the logline. “With a high-stakes production of Frozen on the horizon AND a drama-filled ‘docu-series’ of the production in the works, the Wildcats will attempt to show who is ‘best in snow’ without leaving anyone out in the cold.”
