I’m a little late on the draw with this one, but it’s cool, so I’m rolling with it. At the recently-wrapped NYCC, MARVEL dropped the curtain on plans to bring the stars of this year’s biggest movie to the small screen in an all-new animated series based on GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. Check out a brief bit of test footage featuring Rocket Raccoon and Star-Lord below…

“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. After starring in the biggest movie of 2014, everyone wants more of Star-Lord and his crew – now they’ll get it.”Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television

GOTGThe series stars Peter Quill as Star-Lord, the brash adventurer  who, to save the universe from its greatest threats, joins forces with a quartet of disparate misfits – fan-favorite Rocket Raccoon, a tree-like humanoid named Groot, the enigmatic, expert fighter Gamora and the rough-edged warrior Drax the Destroyer. The series will premiere in 2015 on the Marvel Universe programming block on Disney XD.

Produced by Marvel Animation, the series’ award-winning creative team includes executive producers Alan Fine (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Iron Man,” “Thor”), Dan Buckley (“Marvel’s Avengers Assemble,” “Marvel’s Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.”), Joe Quesada (“Marvel’s Avengers Assemble”) and Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”); co-executive producers Stan Lee (“Spider-Man”), Eric Radomski (“Spawn,” “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble”), Cort Lane (“Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man”) and Stephen Wacker (“Marvel’s Avengers Assemble”); supervising producers Marty Isenberg (“Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters”) and Harrison Wilcox (“Marvel’s Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.”); consulting producer Steven Melching (“Marvel’s Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.”); and supervising director Leo Riley (“TRON: Uprising”).
