In a few short weeks Disney XD will premiere a new animated series based on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.  I do like how they based it off the movie representations of the characters so kids will easily be able to identify with the show, as Star-Lord does look drastically different in the original Marvel comics.

The full series premiere will be on Saturday, September 26 at 9:30 PM ET on Disney XD.

In the following animated shorts, we get to see a young Groot in action.  We also get to see that that he’s apparent’y encountered Ronan the Accuser before.  Although if you were to ask him to tell you the story, it would probably sound something like “I am Groot”.

Catch a special preview of the first episode of “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy” on Saturday, September 5 at 9:00 PM ET on Disney XD!
