Disney+ removes Guardians of the Galaxy episodes after accidentally ruining upcoming special

Disney+ may have inadvertently ruined the next Marvel project to hit the service. Wednesday, the Legends of Marvel Studios episodes for Drax and Mantis went live on the platform. The episodes, which run between five and ten minutes, were quickly removed from the platform after the internet discovered a peculiar scene in the Mantis episode.

A deleted scene was out at the end of the bit Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, one that fans have never seen before. In it, Drax (Dave Bautista) and Mantis (Pom Klementieff) examine Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) from a distance while speaking in hushed tones. It was then revealed in the scene that Mantis is also a child of Ego, meaning she is a sibling of Quill’s.

While Marvel Studios executives have stated that deleted scenes are not MCU canon, the rapid removal of the episode begs the question of why it was included in the first place, especially when Drax and Mantis are the two protagonists of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy holiday special.

Is The Guardians of the Galaxy holiday special Mandatory display for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3?

During a recent interview with ComicBook. coms Phase zero host, Brandon Davis, Gunn was asked if the Christmas special should be watched before the movie.

“Well, I always try to balance these things, so I love it,” Gunn explained. “People have to Holiday special. You’re obviously going to learn a lot about where the Guardians have been over the years. You know, you’re going to see how they live in Knowhere now. They have a new ship, the Bowie. They have a dog [who] is now part of their crew that has telekinesis named Cosmo. So where you learn all that, and then there are some bigger bits of spoiler-like knowledge. You’re going to learn all those things. In a sense the Holiday special was a Trojan horse for me to sneak in things that become important Part 3so I don’t have to spend a lot of time at the beginning of that movie to explain it.”

The Guardians of the Galaxy holiday special will be released on Disney+ on November 25. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3. will be released in theaters on May 23, 2023.
