After totaling over $300 million at box-office, Marvel is moving ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ to the small screen. The new animated series will premiere on Disney XD sometime in 2015. Marvel made the announcement at the New York Comic-Con event taking place here in the city over the weekend.
Just like in the film, the series will once again follow Peter Quill and his loyal friends as they set-off around the galaxy fighting evil and saving the Universe. We’re looking forward to working with the great team at Marvel Television to deliver an engaging animated series that fans can enjoy each week,” said Marc Buhaj, a Disney XD executive.
The film was one of Marvel’s most-successful films of all-time; it was also the most successful film of 2014.
