Guardians of the Galaxy (Animated Series) Debut News

     Disney XD's next Marvel series, Guardians of the Galaxy, has officially been revealed.  The show is set to debut on Saturday September 26th on Disney XD with two back-to-back premiere episodes, airing from 9:30 to 10:30 pm, ET/PT.

     The Guardians of the Galaxy television series "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.”

     Working the way up to that big debut, Disney XD will be showing 2 part character shorts every Saturday through August.
