Can't Get Enough 'Guardians Of The Galaxy'? Then You'll Love This Marvel News

Rocket Raccoon, Peter Quill and the rest are getting animated next year.

Everyone's favorite band of misfit heros are heading a television near you! Marvel announced on Friday (October 10) at New York Comic-Con panel that a "Guardians of the Galaxy" animated series will be coming to Disney XD sometime in 2015.

Watch Rocket Raccoon and Peter Quill (a.k.a Star Lord) blast off in this test footage that premiered at the event:

Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Raccoon and Groot will appear as part of Disney's XD's "Marvel Universe" block programming.

"This is a very exciting time for the Marvel Animation Studio," Jeph Loeb said in a statement. "After starring in the biggest movie of 2014, everyone wants more of Star-Lord and his crew. Now, they'll get it."

At this year's San Diego Comic Con, Marvel also announced a sequel to the first film will come out in 2017.

But back to TV for a minute, can we use this opportunity to suggest that the Guardians series help re-boot Saturday morning cartoons?
