"The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special" hits Disney+ on Black Friday - aka November 25.
First announced in December 2020 and written/directed by film franchise vet James Gunn, "The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special" takes place after the events of "Thor: Love and Thunder" (which is now streaming on Disney+) but before the events of "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3" (which will hit theaters on May 5, 2023). Oh, and there's a Christmas present for Star Lord - and everyone else: Kevin Bacon!
Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldaña, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan and Pom Klementieff all reprise their respective film roles - and bring along Kevin Bacon, even though in the trailer it seems he's not coming along willingly. See for yourself here --->
Oh, and if you're thinking it's skippable, think again. Gunn reiterated that the special is a “must watch” ahead of the third Guardians film. “Absolutely,” he assured a fan. “There’s a lot of big information in there.”
