The Guardians of the Galaxy head to Disney+ for I Am Groot and holiday special
11th December 2020
The Guardians of the Galaxy are getting the Disney+ treatment, with a new series featuring Groot and a holiday special with the whole gang.
Before Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot hit the big screen with the next Guardians of the Galaxy film in 2023, the Guardians will engage in some spirited shenanigans in an original special, created for Disney+. James Gunn will write and direct the festive outing, which will feature the ragtag bunch of misfits getting into the holiday spirit. It will premiere on Disney+ during the 2022 holiday season.
The special was announced by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige at Disney’s Investor Day last night, along with another Guardians outing for Disney+, I Am Groot.
The series will see everyone’s favourite little tree get his own solo series, with the seedling joined by several “new and unusual characters” for a string of shorts.
The two new commissions arrive as Marvel prepares to launch its MCU Phase 4, with WandaVision arriving in January and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier arriving in March.
