Black Panther: Wakanda Forever may be the final chapter of Phase 4, but in the spirit of the upcoming holiday season, Marvel Studios has one more gift in store – The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special. Described as “the epilogue” to the red brand’s latest phase, The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special is more than just a festive side story.
According to writer and director James Gunn, the Disney+ special is also canon to the MCU and will bridge events between Avengers: Endgame and 2023’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. While the Disney+ special is set to release in late 2022, Marvel hasn’t revealed any footage or even announced its release date. However, Christmas has come early this year thanks to a new batch of rumoured details about the special and when fans can expect it to debut.
The Trusted Sources edition of the Tales From the Mod Queue post via the Marvel Studios subreddit has shared details about the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special. According to the rumor, the special will include a scene on Knowhere where the Guardians talk about how Peter Quill isn’t into Christmas because Yondu ruined the holiday for him.
Those who live on Knowhere soon become intrigued with Terra’s Christmas traditions but fail to correctly interpret the holiday and its customs. In true Guardians fashion, the holiday special will feature music, including original Marvel-style Christmas tunes.
