Whether or not James Gunn disputes their canonicity with the films, Disney XD’s Guardians of the Galaxy shorts already have us aboard the new series by filling in gaps the MCU may never get around to. Rounding out the ranks of our beloved criminal super-team is none other than Gamora, and her deadly rivalries with both Nebula and Korath.

We don’t yet know how deeply the next Guardians of the Galaxy will delve into the history of its core five (save for Star-Lord’s pappy), while Disney XD’s upcoming animated series has taken care to introduce detailed origins glossed over by the films. Next up is Drax the Destroyer, whose history with Ronan the Accuser may have been more complicated than we realize.
One of the more interesting elements of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy animated series has afforded movie-influenced backstories to each character, that while not necessarily canon, offer insightful looks into the character history James Gunn could only exposit in the film. Next up comes Rocket Raccoon, whose gruesome origins are a tough one to tackle for Disney XD.
Anyone initially skeptical of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy quickly changed their tune at the prospect of talking raccoons and trees, something Disney XD’s upcoming animated rendition knows full-well. Our latest look at Guardians of the Galaxy writes a love letter to all raccoons, talking or otherwise.
Guardians of the Galaxy gave (or at least alluded to) backstories of only four of its five members, but haven’t we all wondered who puts the Groot in “I am Groot?” Get the full story of Groot’s growth (as well as our first animated look at Ronan the Accuser) in a new short from Disney XD’s animated Guardians of the Galaxy!
Just over a year to the day after Guardians of the Galaxy had us all hooked on a feeling in theaters, Star-Lord and the crew are back with a brand-new beat. We’ve seen a few frames, but the first official Guardians animated series trailer brings a Galaxy’s worth of new action.
We were fortunate enough to be on hand at Comic-Con 2015 to catch Marvel’s animated Guardians of the Galaxy premiere, but now it seems the Disney XD series will fill in backstory even the movie skipped over. See Star-Lord and Yondu’s first meeting in our first full clip from the new Guardians series!
We were on hand at Comic-Con 2015 for an advance look at Marvel’s new Guardians of the Galaxy animated series, but don’t feel bad for missing out. Well, don’t feel good either, but feel a little bit of both with our first look at a new trailer promo for Star-Lord, Rocket, Groot and all the rest’s continued adventures.
If yesterday’s Marvel TV panel closed the gap on Comic-Con 2015’s lack of movies, Marvel’s upcoming animation slate might well pave over it. Preview the animated Guardians of the Galaxy, along with Marvel’s Avengers: Ultron Revolution and Ultimate Spider-Man Vs. The Sinister 6 by our full panel coverage!
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy may have a new volume of cinematic adventures in their future, but we’ll see Star-Lord and co. much sooner than that in animated form. Now primed for a September premiere, Disney XD’s animated Guardians have a brand-new poster, full roster of premiere dates, and a new tricked-out synopsis with some of the Marvel universe’s biggest names!
