As many of you may already know, Guardians of the Galaxy director, James Gunn, is extremely active on social media. He takes the time out of his undoubtedly busy day to answer fan questions, often with an unmatchable wit. He is truly a fanboy's dream director, giving small tidbits (nothing too spoiler-y though) about the upcoming sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Since many people aren't on Facebook, or don't follow Mr. Gunn, we decided to start a new series, called James Gunn Says. Make sure to follow Mr. Gunn on Facebook, if you aren't already. Read the rest after the jump!
Marvel has released the second of five Guardians of the Galaxy Animated Shorts; this one featuring the lovable Groot's origin. The animated series keeps with the comics by having Planet X as Groot's home planet. It also features Ronan the Accuser attacking Groot's family, which is original to the animated series. Check out the videos below, and let us know what you think in the comment section below!
Every Saturday night in August, there will be a new short featuring a different Guardian's origin, leading up to the first full episode on Saturday, September 5th at 9:00 pm ET. Whut-whut!
Marvel has released the first of five Guardians of the Galaxy Animated Shorts; this one featuring Star-Lord's origin. Although not part of the Marvel Cinematic Unvierse's continuity, the short film begins as kid Peter Quill is abducted by Yondu. The animation is so much better than what we've come to expect from Disney's other Marvel shows. The voice talent is great as well, including Boy Meets World's Will Friedle as Peter Quill (Star-Lord). Check out the videos below, and let us know what you think in the comment section below!

Hello, fellow Galaxians! It's been a quiet past few months with little to no Guardians news. I have a feeling that's all about to change very soon with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 beginning to take off! But for now, just to keep your whistle wet, we have a little bit of news about the much anticipated GotG cartoon! Hit the break for all glorious galactic info!
Hey Galaxians! Cameron, here. Hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Years! Sorry the site has been so slow lately. One of my New Years resolutions for 2015 is to post more often. I am very thankful for the following that this site has, and I miss chatting with my Guard The Galaxy family.
Anyway, I was recently contacted by Taryn Watt (PR Manager for 'Living Dead Clothing') about their new line of Guardians of the Galaxy clothing for women. They seem really excited about their collection, so I figured I'd post their press release on here:
"Living Dead Clothing has secured a world exclusive licensing deal with Marvel and have brought Guardians of the Galaxy to life on nylon.
Available now, the collection features all your favorite Guardians characters and is made from the highest quality materials.
All Living Dead Clothing is made in ethical, sustainable and eco-friendly conditions from the best Italian nylon.
The collection includes leggings, skater dresses and skirts, bodycons and bodysuits and since its release there has been an absolutely incredible reaction around the world.
Guardians of the Galaxy fans have fallen in love with the collection, as Living Dead Clothing is the only stretch-wear company in the world licensed by Marvel to produce Guardians of the Galaxy clothing."To check out their Guardians clothing, click here. Stay tuned for more Guardians news in this new year.
This site's been dead for a while (and you haven't missed much news), but Funko has released some awesome new Pop! figurines from Guardians of the Galaxy, which feature villains and anti-hero's alike, including Ronan, Nebula, The Collector, Yondu, and as a "Super-Sized" figure, the mad titan himself, Thanos! They all look amazing, and you can check them out below!

"Ooh Baby give me one more channcceeee!!!" We've been waiting a long time for this, and now it's here! While he only showed up for 43 seconds of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, Baby Groot was one of the highlights of the film, and after some great fan-made figures and a couple of statues, Marvel has finally announced a dancing figure that plays the Jackson 5's "I Want You Back." And the best part is, it's only $15.00! But hey, don't take my word for it, you can see a video of Groot in action below, and it should be released in stores around this Christmastime!
Now that Guardians of the Galaxy is practically out of theaters now, we really haven't had much news about the film, and we still have a couple of years until the sequel is released. But the film will be hitting DVD and Blu-Ray at stores nationwide on December 9. So save the date, and check out some cover art below!

Everyone considered James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy to be Marvel's first big risk, and likely flop. Well whoever said that was wrong, as the team just hit $294.6 million domestically, which passes up Zack Snyder's take on the blue boy scout Man of Steel (which made $291 million). Guardians also hit $586.2 million globally, which beats out Marvel's first film Iron Man, which made a global score of $585 million. So the thief, two thugs, the assassin and the maniac have got some big scores lately, and it doesn't look like they'll be stopping yet. So in the words of Rocket...
Guardians of the Galaxy, whether it be the comic book or the movie, touches each and every one of us in some profound way - we wouldn't be on a fansite and wouldn't be calling ourselves Galaxians otherwise. But the little brother of 'merryweatherblue' on Tumblr found a special connection with Drax. Here's the Original Tumblr Post - This movie has exceeded so many expectations all the way around, but for it to reach someone so deeply and inspire like this, goes well above and beyond anything you could reasonably expect from a film. I am proud to have supported and pushed for this movie so fervently for the last year or more. Warms the cockles of me heart, it does.
Drop a comment and tell us how the Guardians have inspired you in any way, great or small!
"Guardians of the Galaxy will be the next John Carter flop."
"It's just too weird for general audiences."
"What is Marvel thinking?"
These were the sentiments that Galaxians everywhere had to endure while waiting for the Guardians of the Galaxy film. Now that our movie has been out for over a month, let's just say that things have changed drastically. Not only is Guardians currently #1 at the box office, with a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it's also the TOP GROSSING MOVIE OF 2014!!! Domestically, Guardians has made over $274 million, while raking in over $547 million worldwide!
All we have to say to the doubters is..."Oh yeaaaah!"
