‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ TV Series: Cartoon Coming In 2015
“This is a very exciting time for the Marvel Animation Studio as we get to explore the cosmic side of the Marvel Universe by developing the first-ever Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy animated series,” said Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Television. “After starring in the biggest movie of 2014, everyone wants more of Star-Lord and his crew—now they’ll get it.”
You got that right, Jeph!
In addition to the big announcement, the first footage from the show was also revealed. (Best day ever?!)
An animated Rocket the Raccoon makes his appearance in the clip, and we can’t get enough! Peter (aka Star Lord) also joins in on the fun and they take on the baddies together. No sight of Gamora, Drax or Groot, but we’re sure they’ll be featured!
Hopefully, the stars of the original film will make a cameo in some way! Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista and Bradley Cooper — we’re counting on you!
The animated series will premiere in 2015 and Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will blast into theaters July 28, 2017.
