  1. It’s doubtful, but I’d like it to have an accompanying soundtrack composed of songs from the 70’s and early 80’s.

    Ha! Now I have an image of Starlord being replaced by Kim Possible’s bff Ron. This sounds kinda cute, so I’ll probably check out.

    If Marvel and Disney XD keeps half as much wit and charm, of the movie, intact… this will be a very fun series to watch :)
