We all remember the last time a great big franchise movie tried to do a Holiday Special, don’t we? We got Lumpy the Wookie, Bea Arthur singing and some creative decisions seemingly made while enjoying unlimited cocaine.

So let us hope history repeats itself, as that shit is hilarious!

Now Marvel looks set to follow in their Lucasfilm stable mate’s footsteps via James Gunn and his Guardians Of The Galaxy franchise. Gunn has confirmed he has officially finished the first draft of the script for the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special.

He wrote the outline for the television special some years ago, but this is his first attempt at an actual script for the special. It will inevitably air on the Disney+ streaming service.

When asked, Gunn has confirmed that they are aiming for a release during the Christmas 2022 holiday with events in the special taking place after Thor: Love and Thunder but before Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
