Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was one of the big winners out of Comic-Con 2016, with James Gunn’s upcoming sequel headlining Marvel Studios’ panel and going all-out with new footage and big revelations. At this point, it’s getting hard to believe that this group of characters were considered obscure just a few years ago. There are going to be kids growing up who hold the likes of Star-Lord and Drax in the same esteem as Spider-Man and Wolverine. That’s nuts.
You could feel the reverberations of Guardians of the Galaxy‘s success beyond Hall H, like at the Marvel Animation panel. Although the panel teased the new seasons of the company’s various shows and announced a new Hulk/Doctor Strange team-up movie, they also revealed a new series of animated shorts built around Rocket Raccoon and Groot. And you can watch the animation test that screened at the panel right now.
