A multi-part story will kick off Sunday, May 5, on Disney XD and DisneyNOW’s Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout! The story arc will also feature several, distinct animation styles.
On Sunday, May 5, two back-to-back episodes of the series will air on Disney XD and DisneyNOW debuting the styles.
In the story, the Guardians are attempting to escape the Collector’s collapsing ship. In an effort to escape, the Guardians jump into the Black Vortex Mirror — which not only separates the team but traps them in strange and new lands.
As the Guardians experience different times and dimensions we will see each world was created using different animation techniques that support the story.
