Star-Lord, Groot and the gang are back for more action-packed space adventure in the new animated series “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy” on Disney XD.
The new animated show has a different cast to the movies, with Peter Quill/Star-Lord played by Will Friedle, Rocket Raccoon by Trevor Devall, monosyllabic tree Groot by Kevin Michael Richardson (surely the easiest voice acting role ever), Gamora by Vanessa Marshall and Drax the Destroyer by David Sobolov.
The new series premieres on Disney XD on September 26 at 9:30 p.m. local time in the US, with a special sneak preview airing on September 5.
“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,” Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Television, said in a statement. “After starring in the biggest movie of 2014, everyone wants more of Star-Lord and his crew — now they’ll get it.”
