The first season of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy animated series on Disney XD shot me right back to the glory years of Saturday morning cartoons in the '70s. I was right there with my bowl of sugary breakfast cereal, sitting cross-legged on my shag carpet as each colorful episode perfectly captured the reckless spirit and rousing space opera tone of James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy movie and temporarily satiated my yearnings for the upcoming sequel.
Now, the sophomore season will unite the Avengers with our motley crew of intergalactic crusaders.
Here's the official description:
Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Season 2 will follow Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot on a mission to protect Star-Lord's home planet of Earth when they cross pass with Earth's Mightiest Heroes, the Avengers. After an epic battle, the two teams come together to save Earth from an alien mad scientist, The High Evolutionary, but inadvertently unleash an ancient weapon. With every alien baddie in the galaxy after this weapon, the Guardians must unlock its secrets before it destroys them and everything they've sworn to protect.
Check out the Season 2 trailer from Disney XD. The new animated adventures commence on March 11.
