"Guardians of the Galaxy" is all set to be released as animated series on Disney XD in September. And Marvel just announced the premiere dates, giving fans a sneak-peek into the series through the official trailer.

In Marvel's 2014 "Guardians of the Galaxy", we got to see the young Peter Quill, before his life took a 26-year leap. If you wondered what happened to Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, after he was captured by Yondu's alien spaceship, the animated series will answer all your questions.

We have already seen that the legendary outlaw Star-Lord shares a hot-cold relationship with Yondu, but now, we will know where it began. Marvel has released two trailers — Part 1 and 2 of "Star-Lord's Origins", which reveal how Star-Lord met Yondu, how Quill received his signature blaster and many other interesting facts about Star-Lord.

Marvel has made it very clear that the series will not be a continuation of the film, but will be similar enough to fill in some original story blanks.


The official synopsis (via Coming Soon) of the series reads: "'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 one-hour premiere episode is said to take us back to Knowhere, where the galaxy's biggest misfits set out to uncover the past secrets of Peter Quill aka Star-Lord. The team will also begin its quest to find the Cosmic Seed.

Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" animated series will premiere on 26 September on Disney XD. A special preview event is set to air on 5 September.
