Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special Takes Place On Earth Going By Recent BTS Images

The latest Barside Buzz is that Marvel are to make more one-off Specials like Werewolf by Night and GOTG Holiday Special.

It’s looking like the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special takes place on Earth. At least the latest BTS images published by The Direct seem to indicate this is the case. As you can see from the outlet’s social media post below, the Christmas decorations would indicate this is for the Holiday Special and not Guardians 3.

A big Beverley Hill mansion and upturned police crash are not exactly what one would expect from Guardians of the Galaxy. Could this add some weight to the rumors/fan speculation that Kevin Bacon may appear as himself in the Special? Could the Guardians be at Bacon’s house for Christmas? Of course the other big rumor/fan speculation is that Mark Hamill will play an MCU version of Santa Clause. There’s nothing solid on this yet, but ever since Hamill organised a meet up with director James Gunn a few years ago fans have been wondering if and when the Star Wars legend is going to show up in the MCU?

I’ll also say an Atlanta resident whom I trust implicitly told me just yesterday that something Christmas related was being shot in Atlanta. I did wonder whether it could be the Holiday Special? Now I’m half convinced it was. Though to be fair it could have been any other movie or show being filmed for the Holidays.

One of the reason the Guardians may be on Earth is that they are still searching for Gamora who was last seen on this planet in Endgame. Since Guardians 3 was written before Gamora’s death in Infinity War, it seems likely the Holiday Special will be a way for Gamora to return to the team prior to Guardians 3. This would allow Gunn to pretty much run with the script he already ad for this final Guardians movie.

This is all conjecture and speculation on my part, but I think I’m in the right ball park. Of course context is everything and we have none for this Holiday Special. Who knows where this crazy idea is going? I don’t need to know more, it’s Guardians and it’s James Gunn. Count me in. We also know the Guardians are on Earth in Thor: Love and Thunder. I assume that Love and Thunder is set before this given the release schedules. We will next see the Guardians (sans Gamora) in that movie come July 8th. The Holiday Special is expected to appear on Disney+ this upcoming Holiday season.

What do you think of this evidence that the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special takes place on Earth? Go to The Direct and take a closer look at the BTS images in the link above.
