Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special Featurette reveals when James Gunn pitched the idea

A new Guardians of the Galaxy holiday special featurette revealed when James Gunn pitched the idea for his special presentation. Kevin Feige speaks during the clip about how the director shouted “we should do a Holiday Special” on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. That’s a wild time to hatch the plan, but it worked. The Marvel Studios executive also shared that the Holiday special was the first piece of media created specifically for Disney+. When the streaming service was announced, there was a lot of excitement about what exactly would be on the platform. So it’s nice to hear that Gunn has conceived of this special as entirely for home viewing. The hype for this presentation continues to grow.

“It really is the end of the trilogy for all Guardians,” Gunn told ComicBook.com in an exclusive interview on the Phase Zero channel. In the Holiday Special, Gunn’s story focuses more on Drax and Mantis than most of the other Guardians characters. The Marvel characters of Dave Bautista and Pom Klementieff take a trip to Earth in an attempt to bring Kevin Bacon to their friend Star-Lord as a Christmas present. It is the first time that much attention has been paid to these two characters since then Full. 2.”

“I think it’s such a unique relationship and they’re really like Abbot and Costello, but both are Costellos, but Drax is such a huge Costello that he outweighs her Costello-ness,” Gunn continued. “I love them two. I love them two. I wanted to be able to put them in the center of the story rather than on the sidelines. I think they’ve both done that, in the past few movies that weren’t Guards movies have been incredibly sidelined, haven’t been used that much, and so it was important to me to be able to really tell their story and put their journey right in the middle of this. And to see how, how talented those two actors are as comedians and especially dramatic, you see how good Pom is on this show.”

Marvel even has a synopsis for the Christmas fun: “In The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, the Guardians, on a mission to make Christmas unforgettable for Quill, take to Earth in search of the perfect gift. The Marvel Studios’ Special Presentation stars Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan and Pom Klementieff, with Vin Diesel as Groot and Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Sean Gunn and The Old 97’s with Michael Rooker and Kevin Bacon.”
