Comic-Con 2016: Passion Pictures Is Making Rocket & Groot Shorts And The Test Footage Looks Incredible

At Comic-Con yesterday, Marvel unveiled an animation test for a series of Rocket Raccoon & Groot shorts that Passion Pictures is producing. Here’s the test for the series, called Rocket & Groot:

The shorts are being directed by Arnaud Delord, who is known for creating game cinematics with his creative partner Jérôme Combe under the moniker Arnaud & Jerome. His cinematic trailer for the game Agents of Mayhem was recently selected as our Pick of the Day.

No date is set for when the shorts will premiere, but they’ll air on Disney XD.

It has previously been announced that another talented pair of young French directors, Ugo Bienvenu and Kevin Manach, are working on a similar series of Ant-Man shorts for Marvel. Passion is also producing those shorts.
