When to Watch The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special?
Disney+ has set the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special release date on November 25 at 3 a.m. ET/12 a.m. PT. James Gunn will write and direct the forthcoming 44-minute program. Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Vin Diesel as Groot, and Bradley Cooper as Rocket are featured in the film. Sean Gunn, The Old 97’s, Michael Rooker, and Kevin Bacon will make cameos on the show.
Based on the revealed clip, the Guardians’ objective is to locate a gift for Star-Lord (Pratt), who has been distraught since Gamora’s departure after Avengers: Endgame. Their plot leads them to Hollywood, where Drax and Mantis head out in search of Bacon (who is playing himself in the special), an actor Star-Lord has complimented in prior films.
Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Gunn, Sara Smith, and Simon Hatt serve as executive producers, while David J. Grant and Lars P. Winther serve as co-producers.
The team’s most recent appearance was in the first act of this year’s Thor: Love and Thunder, where they paired up with Chris Hemsworth’s Thor for interstellar adventures. More recently, Groot was the protagonist of the I Am Groot shorts series on Disney+. The crew will also feature in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which is expected to premiere on May 5, 2023.
Do The Guardians Of The Galaxy Holiday Special Have An Official Trailer?
Disney+ released the trailer on October 25, featuring dazzling Christmas lights, space travel, and club dancing. Mantis and Drax give Peter a fantastic Christmas gift to cheer him up after Gamora’s departure, leaving Peter in extreme despair. In what looks to be a plot to abduct Kevin Bacon by breaking into his home, the Guardians are likely to cause holiday pandemonium.
Is Another Guardian Of The Galaxy Special In The Future?
The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special is a one-off movie, and although something has yet to be revealed, it doesn’t mean that further special projects aren’t in store from Marvel and Disney+. The two-holiday movies from this year provide plenty of potentials for Marvel to release future short films, whether they introduce new characters and stories like in Werewolf by Night or examine established MCU heroes and villains from new perspectives.
