The first comments of the US press on Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special are full of enthusiasm, and soon the rest of the public will be able to see it too. Meanwhile, the new featurette gives us yet another taste of Marvel Studios ‘ holiday special .


The video takes us behind the scenes, where Kevin Feige talks about the genesis of the project:

On the set of [ Guardians of the Galaxy ] Vol.2 , James Gunn said, “We should do a Christmas special!” We all laughed, we thought it was going to be amazing… and then they wrote it, like, in three days.

Feige adds that it was the first thing Marvel Studios ever conceived for Disney+ . There are also several unedited scenes in which we can see the now grown Groot and the dog Cosmo .

It is already known that Marvel Studios Presents: Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special will be canon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe : it will take place between Thor: Love and Thunder and Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 3 , closing Phase 4.
