Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-Animated-Series-Full-Poster

While it won’t be connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the forthcoming Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon series shows plenty of promise.  Being shown on Disney XD, the “official” premiere date is Saturday, September 26, with back-to-back episodes, but the swell folks at Disney have chosen to give viewers a sneak peek by showing the first episode on Saturday, September 5.  The show should serve well to hold fans over until the next big-screen iteration of the team graces our presence in 2017.  Check out the teaser video here, with the plot synopsis for the first two episodes included below!
