Here is the voice cast for the series – Will Friedle (Star Lord), Kevin Michael Richardson (Groot), Vanessa Marshall (Gamora), David Sobolov (Drax) and Trevor Devall (Rocket).

Guardians of the Galaxy was a major success, and for Marvel, a new workable brand. The superhit film has a highly anticipated Vol. 2 coming out soon (2017), which has prompted the executives to roll out an animated series spin-off to fill in the void. We can expect Marvel to preview GoTG : TAS in the upcoming San Diego Comic Con 2015 event along with new material from its other animated series.
