Marvel Television and Disney XD have taken the wraps off a new TV series that’s part of the partnership between the two entertainment companies.
The project is a new animated series for Disney XD, “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.” The show will feature the characters introduced in the hit film of the same name.
Jeph Loeb, head of television for Marvel, made the anouncement today at New York Comic-Con.
“Produced by Marvel Television, the series stars 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 — fan-favorite Rocket Raccoon, a tree-like humanoid named Groot, the enigmatic, expert fighter Gamora and the rough-edged warrior Drax the Destroyer,” the companies said in their announcement.
The series is set to premiere next year as part of Disney XD’s Marvel Universe programming block.
