The Guardians of the Galaxy Turn 8-Bit Retro in Mission Breakout!


As part of a multi-episode story arc airing back to back on DisneyXD and DisneyNOW, the Guardians of the Galaxy will give fans a taste of how to save the universe in 8-bit pixelated RETRO style. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout! kicks off on Sunday, May 5 at 9:30 to 10:30PM EDT/PDT.

In the episode, the Guardians are trying to escape from the Collector’s collapsing ship and jump back to the Black Vortex Mirror. As a reward for their troubles, they find themselves separated and stranded in different worlds. Each world is set in a different time and dimension, and the show will render each of them using a different animation technique. One of these is a pixelated sprite-based animation reminiscent of videogames from the Nintendo Famicom era. Other techniques that will make an appearance include CG stop motion, children’s illustration, and motion comic.

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.
