Preview The 1st Episode of Guardians of The Galaxy on Disney XD This Saturday

MARVEL'S GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY - Production has begun on "Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy," an upcoming animated television series for Disney XD featuring the hugely popular characters introduced in the  record-breaking Marvel Studios film of the same name.  The announcement was made today by Jeph Loeb, Marvel's Head of Television, at New York Comic-Con.  Produced by Marvel Television, the 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. (Disney XD)
