Our Spoiler-Free Review of ‘The Guardians of the Galaxy: Holiday Special’

Get ready for a new holiday classic! We had the opportunity to preview “The Guardians of the Galaxy: Holiday Special” before it premieres on November 25, exclusively on Disney+.

We will be sharing our non-spoiler comments below. Though we will not share spoilers for the film, we will touch on themes and topics featured in the film and the trailers, so if you wish to avoid any hint of a spoiler we recommend you stop reading beyond this point. Thank you!

In the “The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special,” the Guardians, who are on a mission to make Christmas unforgettable for Quill, head to Earth in search of the perfect present.

We were pleasantly surprised to see both Mantis and Drax shine in the holiday special. The duo show initiative in seeking a gift for Peter Quill. The adventure they share is both hilarious and action-packed. The emotional journey and character development for both was outstanding because we didn’t expect to see so much unpacked in this show.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a James Gunn film without some excellent songs and a few surprise cameos. The soundtrack was incredible and quite fitting. Also, seeing Kevin Bacon in the MCU was a ton of fun!

Marvel’s Christmas-themed Special Presentation is officially our favorite MCU show on Disney+. It’s a feel-good story and we liked how it felt like a quality chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Marvel Studios’ Special Presentation stars Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, featuring Vin Diesel as Groot and Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Sean Gunn and The Old 97’s with Michael Rooker and Kevin Bacon.

Director James Gunn is feeling proud of his upcoming special. The events of the special take place between Thor: Love and Thunder and the upcoming third movie.

“The holiday special is the greatest thing I’ve ever done in my life,” Gunn said. “It’s totally ridiculous, and every day we can’t believe that we’re making it. We all completely love it. It is unlike anything that anyone’s ever seen before. I can’t wait for people to see it.”

We personally loved every minute of this crazy and entertaining holiday show. It premieres November 25th on Disney+ and we plan on rewatching the special this weekend with our friends!
