It's been awhile since we last heard about the new GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY animated series, there was that pretty cool test footage last year, and thing got pretty quiet. Now things are starting to move forward as voice actors have been revealed for perhaps the two most important roles. If I was offered a gig saying "I am Groot" several different ways for what will likely be a lucrative TV show, I wouldn't have to think twice about it. Neither did Kevin Michael Richardson either I assume as the talented voice actor has landed the role of our favorite walking tree. You've likely heard Richardson countless times on shows like The Cleveland Show, Family Guy, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Teen Titans and The Batman.

Disney shared with us Richardson’s take on Groot’s dialogue:

Of course his partner in crime has also been cast, Trevor Duvall will voice Rocket. He is a prolific voice actor says his IMDb page having performed in hundreds of animated productions including television movies, series, feature films and video games. Marvel and Disney will continue to announce the roster as this week goes on so we will try and keep you updated.

What do you think of the voice talent so far? Will you be checking out the series?

Oh, also raccoons are not rodents. They're carnivores. I googled it so it must be true.

Wasn't Rocket Raccoon a Brit the last time that character showed up on Disney XD?

i havent really cared for an animated superhero show since "Young Justice", but this sounds alright. joblo should give a review when it comes out.

does anyone know if this ties into the movie? or will this be a stand alone series.

Another cookbook show for joblo to give 9s every week. This is a movie site not a comic book site.

i meant a review of just the first episode.

joblo should review the first episode of any intriging new series, and maybe the entire season as a whole for certain shows.

This show is particularly different than anything else in that it does tie in to the MCU, this is the first animated series to do that with Marvel. And i cant really think of many other cartoons meant to be official cannon with their movies (Star Wars Rebels being one). What happens in this show will effect what happens

Definitely will be added to my tivo list. This guy is an amazing voice actor. His range is unbelievable not that it will be put to the test in this. But his Vin Diesel voice is on point.
