Anyone who was disappointed by the surprisingly short appearance of the Guardians of the Galaxy in "Thor 4: Love And Thunder" can be happy that the chaos squad will soon not only be in "Guardians Of The Galaxy 3", but also in their own Christmas adventure will once again be at the center of the action. The latter is the second MCU special that Marvel has produced exclusively for Disney+, following the recently released old-school horror homage Werewolf By Night.
"Guardians of the Galaxy" and "The Suicide Squad" director James Gunn is responsible for the screenplay and direction and has once again brought together his well-known characters and stars. However, two Guardians members, in particular, seem to be particularly in focus.
WHAT'RE THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY HOLIDAY SPECIAL ABOUT
In keeping with the season, Christmas is also just around the corner in the “Guardians Of The Galaxy Holiday Special” – which could hardly matter more to most of the eponymous group, after all, as is well known, they are not from Earth. However, Drax, Mantis, Nebula, Kraglin, Rocket, and Groot decide to alias their dejected human leader Peter Star-Lord a special Christmas to cheer him up after the loss of the love of his life, Gamora.
And as the trailer reveals, it's apparently mainly Drax and Mantis who embark on a very special mission on Earth: they want to kidnap Hollywood star Kevin Bacon! Of course, "Guardians Of The Galaxy" fans know only too well why he. After all, the actor is one of THE great heroes of Star-Lord, who disappeared from Earth in the 80s, having sparked Peter's passion for dancing with the cult hit "Footloose". However, Kevin Bacon himself is anything but enthusiastic about the Guardians' plan.
The poster for the "Guardians Of The Galaxy Holiday Special" Christmas special, which was released at the same time as the trailer above, also indicates that Drax and Mantis are the main characters here. We'll have certainty in a month's time: The "Guardians Of The Galaxy Holiday Special" will be released on November 25, 2022, on Disney+ and will then end the fourth phase of Marvel after "Black Panther 2: Wakanda Forever". Cinematic Universe. Phase 5 will then be heralded in 2023 by "Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania" and "Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3".
