Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy series is about to change things up a bit. A new four-episode story arc for the series will feature the Guardians in various animation styles like claymation, 8-bit and more.

  • The new story arc is titled “Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout!” Not to be confused with the “Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!” attraction at Disney California Adventure.
  • The multi-part story arc will kick 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 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.
  • The four episodes will feature animation styles like CG-stop motion, children’s book illustration, 8-bit, and motion comic – all firsts for a Marvel animated series.
  • The arc will also feature Golden Age animation and traditional CG.

  • Descriptions of the four episodes are as follows:
    • “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.
    • “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.
