The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special release date is approaching quickly, so what do we know about the cast, narrative, trailer, and other details?
When are The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special going to be released? The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special is the next chapter in the saga of Star-Lord and his motley company, and it will serve as a tasty appetizer before the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
That’s correct, the Guardians are trading in their Marvel flicks for a one-hour special. The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, like the former Werewolf by Night, is a seasonal TV special for Disney Plus’ streaming service.
It’s set to be the final nail in the MCU’s Phase 4, written and directed by the new DC movie head honcho James Gunn, guaranteeing that this most recent chapter of superhero movie history finishes with a laugh-filled boom.
The release date for the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special is November 25, 2022. That may sound a little early for a Christmas release, but it will ensure that everyone who wants to view it before the 25th of December has ample opportunity.
As the first completely Christmas-themed MCU project, it can also serve as an early boost if you’re trying to get into the festive spirit.
We have a few hints regarding the plot of The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, and we’ll be honest: it sounds really delightful. The core premise of the TV special is that the Guardians travel to Earth to celebrate Christmas for Star-Lord by finding him the best Christmas present imaginable to help him cope with the loss of Gamora. What a gorgeous lady!
There’s even more. The comedic film features the great Kevin Bacon as Drax and Mantis attempt to turn him into a live presentation for Star-Lord. Of course, this may all go horribly wrong, but we’re sure it’ll be a lot of fun along the way. Oh, and Groot is no longer an adolescent.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special will premiere on Disney Plus, with a very manageable runtime of 40 minutes. That means you can watch the Holiday special from the comfort of your own home, cuddled up under a large blanket with a mug of hot chocolate and some mince pies.
This may disappoint some fans who were hoping to watch the finale of Phase 4 on the big screen, but the special is only available on TV and Disney Plus, so there will be no theatrical release.
