Since the announcement that there would be Marvel Cinematic Universe characters receiving there own individual limited series on the new Disney streaming service called DISNEY+. First there was the announcement of Loki and Scarlet Witch then it was followed up by Falcon and Winter Soldier. Now there is a rumor that the MCU’s most lovable pairs may be getting one.
Guardians of the Galaxy members Rocket and Groot are rumored to be next in line. Now this is completely a rumor at this point but is is being reported by That Hashtag Show has heard that there are plans in place for a Disney+ limited series featuring the smart-ass Raccoon and his sentient tree pal.
Though the VFX budget required to bring these characters to life means the show would undoubtedly be more costly to produce than the previously confirmed ones, we already know that the budgets for these Marvel spin-offs are expected to rival that of some blockbuster movies, so they’re clearly sparing no expense.
We’ll obviously have to see if this pans out, but there’s certainly a lot of potential here. Groot and Rocket were a team before the events of the first GOTG movie so the series could chart their early adventures without having to worry about Marvel Studios’ plans for Avengers 4 or Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
