Director James Gunn Says Fans Need to Watch the ‘GotG: Holiday Special’ Before Seeing ‘GotG: Vol. 3’. Marvel Fans have nearly 20 upcoming projects to be excited for, and Director and Writer James Gunn wants fans to know they will need to watch The Guardians of the Galaxy: Holiday Special before seeing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special was announced during the 2020 holiday season much to the surprise of Marvel fans around the world. Very few details have been revealed regarding the upcoming special, but James Gunn has shared he wishes he could share more with fans!
Gunn previously tweeted about his excitement for the special and confirmed the story will be MCU canon, sharing with fans: “Yes, the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special is real. It’s something that Marvel Studios and I have been cooking up for years. The story is as crazy and fun as can be, and it’s live-action and in the MCU. OH MAN, I WISH I COULD TELL YOU MORE!”
The famed filmmaker recently shared with Collider that filming for the special will take place during the production of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 adding that the special will be “under 40 minutes” in length, elaborating: “[The Holiday Special is] in-canon, it’s about the Guardians, you’re gonna learn stuff that you need to learn before Volume 3, and it’s great I’m really happy with it. I’m gonna film it at the same time as the movie. I’m using a lot of the same sets, the same actors obviously, so we’re filming simultaneously with the film but it’s gonna have to be edited and finished sooner.”
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will star Chris Pratt (Peter Quill / Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Dave Bautista (Drax), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Bradley Cooper (Rocket), Vin Diesel (Groot), Sean Gunn (Kraglin/Mo-Cap Rocket), and Elizabeth Debicki (Ayesha). Filming will commence before the end of 2021 at Marvel Studios. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for all things Marvel!
