Pictures from the Christmas special by Guardians of Galaxy they’re starting to look a lot like classic Christmas programs. Written and directed by James Gunnthe 42-minute film is a throwback to classic Christmas TV specials and a prologue to the trilogy Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 of next summer. the Christmas special will be the last Christmas for the team of Guardians, the merry band of misfits that includes Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Drax (Dave Bautista), Mantis (Pom Klementieff), Nebula (Karen Gillan), Kraglin (Sean Gunn), Groot (Vin Diesel) And Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper).

With the human Peter Quill/Star-Lord still sad about Gamora (Zoe Saldana), the alien Drax And Mantis they head to Earth to find their leader the perfect gift: The star of Footloose Kevin Bacon.
“I think it’s a unique relationship and they’re really like Abbot and Costello, but both of them are Costello, but Drax is such a big Costello that it surpasses his constellation,” Gunn told ComicBook of the dynamic between Drax And Mantis. “I love these two characters. I wanted to be able to put them in the center of the story instead of on the sidelines.”
Gunn continued, “I think both, in the last few movies Marvel that weren’t Guardians, they’ve been incredibly sidelined, they haven’t been used much. So, being able to tell their story and put their journey at the center of this film was important to me. And to be able to see the talent of these two actors as comedians and dramatics. In particular, you see how good Pom is on this show.”
