Director and writer James Gunn has yet to begin filming the Guardians of the Galaxy holiday special, due for release in December 2022.

Speaking with Collider, Gunn explains that while this is due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Omicron version only makes it unsafe to film.


“We had to shoot one day in LA, and there’s a lot of Omicron, so we couldn’t do that,” Gunn says, adding that she’s very excited about the special.

“I’m almost jealous of it, even though I wrote it because people are so upset about how much they like the script for a holiday special, I’m almost like, ‘Okay, wait. I got it. The film is here Mili Hai I have been working on for two years. You love the holiday special which I wrote in a really short span of time.’ But, it’s really fun and really cool.”

The film Gunn is referring to is Guardians of the Galaxy 3, which is still slated for release in 2023. Little is known about the story, although Gunn shared some admiration for Chukudi Iwuji, who is cast in an undisclosed role and is also playing a main character in Gunn’s Peacemaker series.

“Chukudi, who plays Murn in Peacemaker, is one of the main characters of the film and people are outraged about how cool this guy is. Really angry. I think I’m really happy. I did the scenes. given a bunch of miracles just before the Christmas break.Kevin [Feige] Gone… they were all really, really, really shocked.”

He also teases that the film will be very different from what fans expect and he is really happy with how it is turning out so far.

The Guardians of the Galaxy holiday special will release exclusively for Disney+ and serve as part of Phase 4 in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Although plot details are scarce, all the Guardians – Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot – will return along with Nebula and Mantis.

Since it’s releasing before the third film, the special could solve a lingering plotline related to Gamora from Avengers: Endgame. While the main timeline’s Gamora died in Avengers: Infinity War, a younger version of her from the past remains trapped in the present and her current whereabouts are unknown.
