How to watch ‘The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special’

Our favorite renegades are back, and it looks like we’re staying up late to see them.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special was announced back in December 2020, and the newly-released teaser trailer for the streaming-exclusive special has reignited excitement — and questions — among fans.

The trailer shows Mantis and Drax trying to get the best possible Christmas present for Guardians leader Peter Quill — the ideal gift being legendary actor Kevin Bacon — who guest stars as himself in his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut. Peter Quill is a huge fan of Bacon’s, as established in previous films. In the trailer we also see Nebula (Karen Gillan), Mantis (Pom Klementieff), Kraglin (Sean Gunn), Drax (Dave Bautista), Groot (Vin Diesel), and Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), confirming their return for the special.
