Guardians of the Galaxy Series to Feature Distinct Animation Styles for Arc

-

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout! will feature distinct animation styles in a multipart story arc kicking off Sunday, May 5 (9:30–10:30 p.m. EDT/PDT), with two back-to-back episodes on Disney XD and DisneyNOW. In the new Guardians of the Galaxy series 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.

The premiere schedule is as follows:

Sunday, May 5 (9:30 p.m. EDT/PDT)
– “Black Vortex, Part One” – When the Guardians become separated in the Black Vortex, Gamora wakes up in a children’s fairy tale, while Drax is trapped in a comic book.
– “Black Vortex, Part Two” – While caught in a CG sinister packing factory, Rocket must search for his best friend Groot and escape.

Sunday, May 12 (9:30 p.m. EDT/PDT)
– “Black Vortex, Part Three” – Quill finds himself in a claymation world where the Milano is flying into the sun, threatening to melt him. Meanwhile, Groot and Drax must fight Ronan in a Golden Age world.
– “Black Vortex, Part Four” – Gamora and Quill battle their way through an 8-bit Super Marvel World.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout! stars Will Friedle (Disney’s Kim Possible) as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Trevor Devall (Johnny Test) as Rocket Raccoon, Vanessa Marshall (Star Wars Rebels) as Gamora, David Sobolov (Transformers: Prime) as Drax the Destroyer, and Kevin Michael Richardson (The Cleveland Show) as Groot.

Produced by Marvel Animation, the series’ award-winning creative team includes executive producers Alan Fine (Marvel’s The Avengers), Joe Quesada (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble), Dan Buckley (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble), Cort Lane (Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man), and Eric Radomski (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble).
