THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY HOLIDAY SPECIAL's Place In The MCU's Timeline Has Been Revealed
The Suicide Squad director James Gunn has confirmed that he's finished writing The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, while revealing where in the Marvel Cinematic Universe's timeline it takes place.
James Gunn has taken to Twitter to confirm that he's finished writing The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special. It will hit Disney+ next Christmas, and the plan is to shoot it while cameras are rolling on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (the director will also film content for that new Disney World ride).
Answering fan questions, Gunn also confirmed that the events of the "Holiday Special" will take place between Thor: Love and Thunder and the Guardians of the Galaxy threequel.
We don't know much about the plot of this small screen spinoff, but it won't be feature-length.
Chances are it will be a tongue in cheek holiday adventure and not an essential part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline, but we're sure Gunn will drop at least a few Vol. 3 hints.
"Before Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot hit the big screen with the next Guardians of the Galaxy film in 2023, watch the Guardians engage in some spirited shenanigans in an all-new original special, created for Disney+, during the 2022 holiday season," reads a brief synopsis released last year.
