Disney XD has released the first promo trailer for Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy animated series, and it looks like it will be a wildly fun show. It’s not connected to the MCU, but it will include some plot points and elements from James Gunn‘s film.
Marvel screened the full first episode of the series at Comic-Conrecently. From what I’ve heard it was really good, and the visuals were great. You’ll get a taste of that in this brief promo.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy follows the newly-formed team who finds a strange artifact keyed only to the DNA of Peter Quill. Upon opening it, Quill unleashes a treasure map leading to a powerful weapon known as the Cosmic Seed which is capable of giving birth to the next universe. It’s up to the Guardians to find, protect and ultimately destroy the Cosmic Seed in order to keep it out of the hands of those who would abuse its power, from galactic big boss Thanos, to the conniving brothers the Collector and the Grandmaster, to a resurrected Ronan, to the ultimate trickster, Loki, in order to save the universe.
The voice cast for the series includes Will Friedle as Star-Lord,Trevor Devall as Rocket Raccoon, Vanessa Marshall as Gamora,David Sobolov as Drax the Destroyer, Kevin Michael Richardsonas Groot, and James Arnold Taylor as Yondu and Cosmo. The show is set to premiere on September 26th. Thanks to IGN for the promo!
