We’ve been anxiously awaiting the launch of the animated Guardians of the Galaxy series, and yesterday Disney released the first trailer for the series.
“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.
If the character design looks a lot like your Critical Hit T-shirts, it’s because Thomas Perkins has been working on the show for a while now.
