Disney XD has teamed up with popular local TV tech and gaming fundi, Grant Hinds, to create an entertaining YouTube campaign that takes a behind the scenes look at the Guardians of the Galaxy characters and their special powers.
Created by the zany Hinds and running exclusively on his YouTube channel, the campaign explores the different characters, their personal stories and where they fit into the fantastic Marvel universe. Fun, exciting and a little bit off the wall, the YouTube series is crammed with facts, stats and tons of local humour, making it ideal for young South African viewers.
Hinds explains, “I’m crazy about technology and gaming, and a die-hard Marvel fan, so working with Disney XD to create the YouTube video series has been an absolute blast! I love finding out more about the characters and what makes them tick, and then sharing this with the viewers. I think South African audiences are going to love the animated series, currently airing on Disney XD (DStv channel 304), and are going to enjoy these vids just as much, as they feed their craving for everything Guardians!”
There are five videos in total:
1. Meet the Guardians of the Galaxy.
2. The history of Guardians of the Galaxy.
3. 5 things you didn't know about Guardians of the Galaxy.
4. 6 crazy appearances in the Marvel universe by the Guardians of the Galaxy.
5. Let’s Play: Guardians of the Galaxy Galactic Run.
