The Guardians of the Galaxy will benefit from preferential treatment with a “Holiday Special” which will be dedicated to them at Christmas 2022. A TV movie planned on Disney + which James Gunn will take care of. Will it be linked to the next movie? The director responds.
Guardians of the Galaxy expected on small and big screen
James Gunn will finally be able to devote himself fully to the Guardians of the Galaxy now that The Suicide Squad comes out in theaters. The director dropped by DC during a falling out with Disney over a tweeting affair, then was eventually rehired to continue to take care of the Star-Lord-led team. The third feature film will have a very special flavor because it should be his last foray into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The person has already explained that he will retire after this part which will conclude his trilogy. Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is scheduled in our rooms on May 3, 2023. Before that, the members of the team will pass a head in Thor: Love and Thunder.
We will also find them in a project planned on Disney +. Remember, during Investor Day which took place at the end of 2020, the studio announced that a Holiday Special Guardians of the Galaxy was planned for Christmas 2022. What could be an anecdotal title takes on another dimension when we know that James Gunn in person will take care of the realization. It is at least the guarantee of having a product which will respect the spirit of the films and which will be in total coherence with them. During the announcement, James Gunn had specified that he wanted to pay tribute to the decried Holiday Special from Star Wars. An interesting intention if the execution is up to par.
A Holiday Special not to be missed
The TV movie shouldn’t be overlooked by MCU fans as the director confessed to Collider thatit will serve as an introduction to Guardians of the Galaxy 3. Like what we find in the series of the platform, the small screen is now a playground used to develop the extended universe.
It’s in the canon, it’s about the Guardians, you’re going to learn things that you need to learn before Volume 3.
As explained in the past, the filming of the TV movie will be done at the same time as that of the Guardians of the Galaxy 3. Thus, the actors will already be there and the sets can be reused. The storyline of the feature film remains a total mystery. Thor: Love and Thunder will provide us with indications on the follow-up from May 4, 2022.
For the most assiduous fans, we remind that an anthological series I Am Groot is also planned on Disney +. For once, the latter will surely be dispensable compared to the main frame of the characters.
