Marvel Studios’ second Special Presentation has finally been unveiled, as the first trailer for The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special has found its way online. After the success of Werewolf by Night, many were excited to see what the studios’ first-holiday special may have in store and the first trailer did not disappoint.
The trailer confirms the story of the special is about the team trying to distract Star-Lord from losing Gamora by offering him a very unlikely present, Kevin Bacon. It’s surprising that the trailer would include that detail but that might mean there’s a lot more we haven’t seen yet. Luckily, the wait isn’t much longer as the Holiday Special has received a November 25 release date.
For those wondering why a November release, it’s not uncommon that a holiday special finds its way online shortly before the celebration it includes. Werewolf by Night was a Halloween special that was released in October, and a recent tease did hint that the Guardians of the Galaxy special was likely going to get a November release.
Either way, it’s great to see the Special Presentation being continued by Marvel Studios and hopefully hints at many more types of these projects in the future. Who knows if they keep up the tradition with more holiday-themed specials or also include some Special Presentations that mainly serve as unique “direct-to-streaming” films, in addition, tot heir series. We’ll have to see what heads our way.
