Marvel Entertainment has released its latest animated short ahead of Disney XD’s Guardians of the Galaxy series, which details the origin of Rocket Raccoon. Check it out below, and watch the previous shorts for Star-Lord and Groot…
We still have two more shorts coming before the animated series launches proper…
– August 22: Drax – Part 1 (8:58 p.m., ET/PT) & Part 2 (9:58 p.m., ET/PT)
– August 29: Gamora – Part 1 (8:58 p.m., ET/PT) & Part 2 (9:58 p.m., ET/PT)
The series 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.
Guardians of the Galaxy will premiere on Disney XD on September 26th, with a sneak peek of the first episode airing on September 5th.
