Disney XD and Marvel have announced that a sneak peek of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy animated series will air on Saturday September 5 on Disney XD. The official premiere of the show will air on September 26th. If either of these two dates seem like too far off to get your GotG fix then make sure to tune in to Disney XD in August when it will air five 2-part shorts, each based on a different Guardian.
