James Gunn announced it with a tweet showing the end-of-production gift, that is, the Christmas decorations that portray the members of the Guardians . There is also a dog that could be Cosmo the Space Dog .
We don’t know much about this Christmas special, other than that it will be entirely canon and will be released next Christmas on Disney + . The duration should be around 40 minutes. Months ago, Gunn revealed that the special will introduce some new characters to the Marvel Cinematic Universe .
