Marvel and Disney XD announce mini-series of “Rocket & Groot” shorts

Marvel and Disney XD announced today a 12-episode series of Rocket & Groot animated shorts. The shorts follow Rocket and Groot (from the Guardians Of The Galaxy) as they try to figure out how to get enough credits to buy a new ship after their old one breaks down. A compilation of all the shorts will premiere on Disney XD at 7:00am ET/PT on April 10th.

Below is embed the first of the shorts – “Dream Machine” – in which Rocket & Groot find their dream ship in the Broker’s junkyard, but encounter one very expensive problem before they can buy it.

Rocket is voiced by Trevor Devall (“Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Johnny Test”) and Groot is voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson (“Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy,” “The Cleveland Show”).

Featuring animation by Oscar-nominated Passion Pictures, the shorts are directed by Arnaud Delord, written by Chris “Doc” Wyatt and Kevin Burke, executive produced by Cara Speller, Alan Fine, Dan Buckley, Joe Quesada, Cort Lane, and co-executive produced by Stephen Wacker and Stan Lee.
