Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, And Benicio Del Toro Talk “Guardians of the Galaxy”

Another part of what makes this film so great is that even though it is connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you need no prior knowledge of any of the source material.
The film has such a whimsy feel to it, that it will leave you singing and dancing. It practically bursts with energy, and will have you cheering for a talking three who can only say “I Am Groot.”

The new animated show centers on the Galactic Empire hunting down the remaining Jedi Knights, and any rebels who might be helping them. This would be the first animated series since Disney had acquired LucasFilms a few years back. Kinberg is in town to not only celebrate the show which is being teased at San Diego Comic-Con, but to also help promote the Disney XD’s animated show.
