The space-traveling team was last seen in this year’s Thor: Love and Thunder, where they teamed up with Chris Hemsworth’s Thor for some intergalactic adventures in the film’s first act. Though Groot will be the focus of this month’s Disney+ series of shorts titled I Am Groot, the team itself will next be seen in The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special towards the end of the year, then in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on May 5, 2023.
