The Guardians are getting animated!

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy was undoubtedly one of the biggest movies of 2014. Now, Peter Quill and the gang are getting animated for a brand new series, kicking off on September 26.

ET was invited to go behind the scenes for a special peek at a recording session with the stars of the series: Will Friedle (Star-Lord/Peter Quill), Vanessa Marshall (Gamora), David Sobolov (Drax the Destroyer), Trevor Devall (Rocket Raccoon), and Kevin Michael Richardson (Groot).

Like much of the rest of the world, the cast told us they were super-fans of the film; but don’t expect this talented voice cast to attempt to replicate the likes of Chris Pratt or Zoe Saldana.

“Chris Pratt was so amazing in the film that the last thing I wanted to do was try to come in and do a Chris Pratt impression,” said Friedle. “I had to try to do the character my own way.”

“I have a real reverence for Zoe Saldana,” said Marshall, "but I think you naturally bring sort of your own life experience to it.”

The show will explore backstories behind our beloved characters - and while this will be quite different from the film, that doesn’t mean we’re losing out on that sweet soundtrack we grew to love.

“The music in Guardians was a character,” said Friedle. “And I think we've certainly tried to keep that alive during the series.”

The series kicks off with a one-hour special on September 26th on Disney XD.
