Animated Guardians of the Galaxy Teaser: Groot Is Thankfully Still Very Groot-y

Remember the test footage of animated Chris Pratt Star-Lord? Well, IGN has a little bit more: The first teaser for Guardians of the Galaxy’s upcoming Disney XD series, which, beginning this fall, should hopefully tide you over till Guardians 2. Although the show won’t be part of the MCU, it looks like it’ll still be lots of entertaining intergalactic fun: Groot is still very Groot-y, Rocket is still insane and fully equipped, Gamora is still a badass, Star-Lord is still looking like svelte Pratt — essentially, the whole gang’s here. Actually, wait. SOS, where’s Drax?

Don’t worry — he’s in this poster. In case you need something else to feed your Guardians cravings, here’s what the first two episodes of this series are about (via SlashFilm):

“Road to Knowhere”: The newly-christened Guardians of the Galaxy come into possession of a dangerous artifact that has Thanos’ new lieutenant, Korath, after them.

“Knowhere to Run”: The Guardians struggle to subdue the suddenly-sprung-to-life Celestial head that is the Knowhere space colony, as well as storm Korath’s ship to rescue Quill, Gamora, and the mysterious CryptoCube that holds the Cosmic Seed.

What. Yeah, so, if you’re intrigued, catch the ‘toon Guardians being good, bad, and a mix of both on September 26.
