Two new clips from the animated Guardians Of The Galaxy TV series have arrived, showing the origin of Groot, and they’re pretty adorable.

“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.”

Guardians Of The Galaxy begins on Disney XD on 26 September in the US. No UK airdate has been announced. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
