James Gunn made sure Guardians of the Galaxy wore its ’80s heart on its sleeve—in the music, the clothing, and even the cassette player Peter Quill kept on him. The Blu-ray and DVD release is keeping that ’80s spirit alive by re-imagining it as a video game.
On his Facebook page, James Gunn teased out some of the Guardians Blu-ray bonus features, with a quick look at how the extras will be packaged on the disc. And it will immediately leave fans wishing for a classic Nintendo-style Guardians of the Galaxy game.
The animated clip takes place in the cave Star Lord explores at the beginning of the film, but the cave has a new inhabitant: director James Gunn. The discovery of Gunn also references Star Lord’s introduction to Djimon Hounsou’s character Korath shortly after the film’s musical cave scene.
The video game animation is part of a series of interludes connecting the behind-the-scenes videos about the film included on the disc. Other interludes will include appearances by Thanos and even Kevin Feige, but really will just continue to demonstrate how perfect a Guardians retro game would be. Maybe Marvel can work on that before Guardians of the Galaxy 2 hits theaters.
