Guardians of the Galaxy’s Disney + holiday special is “absolutely ridiculous”
Who would have thought that the man who wrote the live action Scooby-Doo would movies be the hottest name in comics? Well, that’s the case, while director James Gunn continues to pack his resume with some of the best the genre has to offer. And the filmmaker shows no signs of slowing down Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Founder of Peace Season 2, and The Guardians of the Galaxy holiday special.
His next dip into the world of the super powerful will be GOTG Holiday Special, which the director brings the team into the holiday season for the first time. Apart from a few set photos, the festive feature is still kept hidden; However, it has been confirmed that most of the main team will appear in the Disney + project.
Despite the fact that not many story details are published, Gunn has recently started talking about the title, and gives hints about what the audience can expect.
Get in the Christmas spirit with the guards
In an interview with Deadline, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn addressed what fans can expect in the coming GOTG holiday special.
The reluctant director described The holiday special as “very light and bubbly and fun, “ calls the whole project “absolutely ridiculous:”
“Yes, the Holiday Special is very light and bubbly and fun and just completely ridiculous, so I think it’s great. And then we’ll do Peacemaker season 2.”
This is in line with other recent quotes from Gunn where he addressed the unique character of the Special, saying “it’s unlike anything anyone’s ever seen before:”
“The holiday special is the best thing I’ve ever done in my life. It’s completely ridiculous, and every day we can not believe we can do it. We all love it. It’s unlike anything anyone has ever seen before. I look forward to people seeing it. ”
He has also teased that Holiday special will contain “one of the greatest MCU characters of all time” and is the key to the future of these characters that it will introduce “some important new elements in the Guardian’s history.”
A Holiday of Heroes with James Gunn
While The Guardians of the Galaxy holiday special remains shrouded in shadow, and still offers fans much to enjoy. Despite the fact that they do not know exactly where the power project will go, Gunn and co. has done a pretty fantastic job and kept the audience engaged in the title, months before it comes out.
And it’s a luxury to be someone like James Gunn, who has delivered enough top-level Marvel and DC content that people do not really question whether his productions will come together. He has benefited from that Guardians franchise, The Suicide Squad, and Founder of Peace.
But it’s nice to hear that GOTG holiday specials takes on a similarly light-hearted tone as his theatrical stepbrothers. This will especially be a breath of relief for someone who is worried about the supposed darker tone of the coming GOTG Vol. 3. With the upcoming threequel, it’s set to get dark, so The holiday special will be a nice festive trip before the fans say goodbye to this repetition of the Guardians team.
The Guardians of the Galaxy holiday special will start streaming on Disney + sometime later this year.
