Remember coming out of San Diego Comic-Con, before we even got to lay eyes on the movie, and we were all fairly certain that Marvel announced a Guardians of the Galaxy animated series? Then a little bit later someone came out and said, “We said no such thing,” and crushed that particular dream? Well, apparently that was just a stalling tactic, as there is actually a Guardians cartoon on the way, with the artwork, footage, and official statements to prove it.
Marvel’s head of television, Jeph Loeb (also an excellent writer of comic books in his own right), made the announcement at New York Comic Con, saying that they’ve started production on their latest animated venture. The series will air on Disney XD, and follow and incarnation of the crew that looks suspiciously just like the one from the movies. You’ll get to hang out with Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, and of course, Rocket Raccoon and Groot.
