Eric Matthews (Will Friedle) Will Be The Voice Of Star-Lord In The ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Animated Series
Plays With Squirrels – After the release of Guardians Of The Galaxy back in August of last year, Marvel and Disney have made sure to capitalize on the film’s instant success. The film was such a hit with critics and projected for such high box office numbers that a sequel was announced at Comic-Con International, a week before the movie was even released in theaters. After its release, Guardians spawned everything imaginable in merchandising, from action figures to raccoon ear headphones, and made an overnight action star/sex symbol of Chris Pratt.
Back in October, at New York Comic-Con, Disney and Marvel announced plans for a Guardians Of The Galaxy animated series on the Disney XD channel. With all of the success the franchise has seen it is no surprise that Disney would approach Marvel about utilizing Guardians the same way they did Star Wars with Star Wars Rebels. While the series does not have a solid premiere date other than some time this year, more news has come forward about casting voices for the Guardians. Today, Disney has announced that Boy Meets World actor Will Friedle will be providing the voice of Star-Lord, the character made famous by action star/sex symbol Chris Pratt.
It’s always wonderful when two of your favorite things come together to make a beautiful baby, and that is exactly what happened here. Will Friedle, most famously known as Eric Matthews on Boy Meets World, will be voicing Star-Lord for the new Guardians Of The Galaxy animated series on Disney. If you love Boy Meets World (how could you not) and Guardians Of The Galaxy (HOW COULD YOU NOT) then this is pretty cool news. There’s a solid chance I won’t watch the show, but who cares, because Eric Matthews is back on a television screen (sort of) which is right where he belongs. The only left to do is for the creators of the animated series to sneak Plays With Squirrels into an episode and I’ll be able to die a happy man.
