The First Official Trailer for the Animated Guardians of the Galaxy Series Has Arrived!
After lots of waiting and a brief short that explicated Star Lord's origin story, we finally have the first official trailer for the Guardians of the Galaxy animated series. And for GOTG fans, it will have everything you need to be re-introduced to the "galaxy's greatest hits": 



The trailer, courtesy of EW, features all of the beloved elements that made the original a hit (with the exception of Chris Pratt's abs): Hooked on a Feeling, "I am Groot," and a general feeling of silliness. It reminds me of the first time I saw the trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy; I wasn't completely sold on the premise but the music choice swayed me. You just can't help but like it.

Granted, the movie floated on the talents of its cast and its overall humor and charm, and didn't really have a plot to speak of. The show has to be a little more sustainable than that, so hopefully it will place a little more emphasis on plotting, but the footage looks promising so far.

The official synopsis reads:

Opening quote
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.
Closing quote


Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy animated series premieres on September 26 on Disney XD. There will also be a sneak peek at the first episode on September 5.
