The Guardians of the Galaxy are back this week just in time for all the Christmas festivities.
About the Holiday Special
In the new holiday special, the Guardians of the Galaxy are embarking on a journey to make Christmas a celebratory time for the character Pete Quill. This time around, Christmas is looking a little gloomy after the loss of his love interest Gamorra.
Now, the Guardians of the Galaxy are aiming to make this the best Christmas if not memorable for Peter Quill who is played by Chris Pratt.
In the current trailer, the Guardians of the Galaxy take on an adventure to Earth to find the ultimate gift for Peter Quill. Who might this be? None other than Kevin Bacon who is supposed to be Quill’s idol.
The 42-minute special will follow the Guardians of the Galaxy on their trip to Earth to find the legendary Kevin Bacon so that their friend is able to cheer up during the festive season.
According to Telegraph India, the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special was a long time coming. This comes as actress Pom Klementief who plays the character Mantis shared that producer James Gunn shared this idea of a holiday special at
least years ago. This year, the story actually comes to fruition with Kevin Bacon playing a fictional version of himself.

In a previous interview, Klementief shared the reason why the story comes many years later and why it is even more special to let fans wait a little bit before sharing details about any upcoming project.
She shared, “Nowadays, so many things are public. People talk so much. It’s nice to keep a little bit of mystery, some secrets. Just talk about it at the right time and make it a beautiful moment instead of just lashing everything out,”
In addition, the new holiday special should be giving some insight into Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3. As many may know, the MCU loves giving little snippets of what fans can expect in the next film and the holiday special will do just that. So make sure you watch till the end for your holiday treat!
Thus far, the events in the Holiday special take place right after the Thor Love and Thunder film. It also follows the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special is available to stream on Disney+ on November 25th.
