A first official teaser trailer for Disney XD’s new animated Guardians of the Galaxy TV series is finally here. Released by Marvel, the new promo sees the whole gang of the Milano returning, alongside some familiar faces.

This follows a first promo clip that was unveiled last week.

The one-hour, two-episode series will take us back to Knowhere, where the galaxy’s biggest idiots set out to uncover the secrets of Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord’s, past. The team will also begin a quest for the Cosmic Seed.

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.

The Guardians will be voiced by Will Friedle as Star-Lord, Vanessa Marshall as Gamora, Kevin Michael Richardson as Groot, Trevor Devall as Rocket and David Sobolov as Drax the Destroyer. Returning familiar faces include Yondu, voiced by James Arnold Taylor, and Nebula.

The whole TV promo is, of course, set to Blue Swede’s "Hooked on a Feeling," which has now probably become forever synonymous for a whole generation of moviegoers with Marvel’s blockbuster movie, whether we like it or not.

Marvel’s animated Guardians of the Galaxy TV series will premiere on Disney XD on Sept. 26, 2015, at 9:30 PM ET.
