We first heard about Marvel’s box office blockbuster Guardians Of The Galaxy heading to the small screen last summer at Comic-Con. Today we learned it will premiere in 2015 on Disney XD. The series will feature characters introduced in the film, including 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 – Rocket Raccoon, a tree-like humanoid named Groot, the enigmatic, expert fighter Gamora and the rough-edged warrior Drax the Destroyer.
Produced by Marvel Animation, the series will be executive produced by Alan Fine, Dan Buckley, Joe Quesada and Jeph Loeb. Co-executive producers include Stan Lee, Eric Radomski, Cort Lane, and Stephen Wacker.
