Great though it was to go through the Guardians of the Galaxy backstory one by one, we’re ready to see the full team in action with a sneak peek at Saturday’s animated series debut. Thankfully, Rocket has just the explosive-laden clip to prime us for the newest adventures of Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Groot and his ferocious furry friend.

We caught the initial installment of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy back at Comic-Con, though Marvel today released an action-jetpacked clip of the animated series sneak peak this coming Saturday. Not only is the team already in trouble, fighting off some grotesque looking robot bugs, but the presence of Yondu and his ever-powerful arrow undoubtedly means a betrayal or two in their future.

Premiering through August and September, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy features Will Friedle as Star-Lord, David Sobolov as Drax, Vanessa Marshall as Gamora, Kevin Michael Richardson as Groot and Trevor Devall as Rocket Raccoon, and James Arnold Taylor as both Yondu and Cosmo. So reads the full synopsis:

 

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy 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.
