Beginning Sunday, May 5 on Disney XD and DisneyNOW!
"Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout!" will feature distinct animation styles in a multi-part story arc kicking off Sunday, May 5 (9:30-10:30pm ET/PT) with two back-to-back episodes on Disney XD and DisneyNOW.
In the new storyline, the Guardians, desperate to escape the Collector's collapsing ship, jump into the Black Vortex Mirror and find themselves separated and trapped in strange new worlds. Crossing time and dimensions, each world was developed using different animation techniques to visually support the storytelling, including CG-stop motion, children's book illustration, 8-bit, motion comic – all firsts for a Marvel animated series – as well as Golden Age and traditional CG.
