Marvel’s guardians of the Galaxy hit the big screen with a huge splash last year exposing a whole new audience to the amazing Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Gamora, and Drax the Destroyer. They’re an odd assortment for a group of super heroes, but they’re lovable perhaps because of their flaws.
If you feel the same way, you’ll soon get to see a lot more of the Guardians in the sequel to the movie, but also in an animated series coming to Disney XD in September.
Disney has just released the first promotional video for the new series. It’s short at just 15 seconds, but for the first footage we’ve seen from the series, it’s great.
Featuring the hugely popular characters introduced in the record-breaking Marvel Studios film of the same name, the series stars Will Friedle (“Boy Meets World”) as the brash adventurer Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Trevor Devall (“Johnny Test”) as fan-favorite Rocket Raccoon, Vanessa Marshall (“Star Wars Rebels”) as the enigmatic, expert fighter Gamora, David Sobolov (“Transformers: Prime”) as the rough-edged warrior Drax the Destroyer, Kevin Michael Richardson (“The Cleveland Show”) as tree-like humanoid Groot and James Arnold Taylor (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars”) as leader of the space pirates Yondu and the telepathic dog, Cosmo.
The good news is that, at least as far as we can tell from these 15 seconds, the animated series has the same spirit as the movie. That can only lead to good.
Be ready for a little bit good and a little bit bad on Saturday, September 28th when the show debuts on Dixney XD with two back to back episodes or catch a sneak preview of the first episode on Sept 5th.
