Guardians Of The Galaxy Animated Series To Air On Disney XD (Updated with Trailer)

Disney XD's new series Star Wars Rebels is about to get another space-based series to share the network with. Marvel has announced that Guardians of the Galaxy will be getting their own animated series on Disney XD.

This announcement isn't a huge surprise as test footage for the series was shown during the San Diego Comic Con and it's well known that Disney is trying to give a push to the XD network, so adding the cartoon series based on the biggest movie of the year was a no-brainer.

The animated series Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy will feature the same characters as the film: Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Star-Lord, Gamora and Drax. Also it's reported that Thanos will play a large role in the film. It's not known at this time if the animated series will play into the larger cinematic universe.
