If you haven’t seen The Guardians Of The Galaxy Holiday Special yet, you need to see it. Now. Drop whatever you’re doing, head to the nearest screen capable of streaming Disney+ and watch this thing. It is glorious. I LOVED IT. I can’t rave enough about it.
But there’s a second reason you should see it and that’s because you can’t read this article without having seen it first, unless you want to be spoiled for a lot of great gags. So watch it and come back and learn a surprising thing or two. James Gunn was on Twitter yesterday answering fan questions about the special, and revealed some things we never thought we’d hear…like Gobots are real. (Hey, I told you to read this afterward! It’s not my fault you didn’t listen to me…)
In one of the early scenes, Mantis and Drax are wandering around Hollywood looking for Kevin Bacon when Drax spots a man near the Chinese Theater dressed like a robot. He immediately goes into a rage and tackles him, and Mantis explains to a bystander that “a...

Starlord is going through a tough time right now as a direct result of Gamora's death in the Avengers endgame. The idea that Drax and Mantis would kidnap Kevin Bacon to cheer up Quill for Christmas is adorable, hilarious, and spot-on for these characters. I can't wait to see where this goes from here because it's promising. We couldn't have asked for a better way to say goodbye to 2017 than with the Guardians of the Galaxy holiday special.
 
Star-lord deserve happiness. They couldn't have gotten a better cast for the Christmas episode. Even after everything he's been through, he's managed to pull himself and his team together. When the Guardians arrive, I just know there will be tears and laughter. It's great that Marvel is doing this, and hopefully they'll do more events like this in the future.

Marvel, this is the right direction. Having a good time while telling an entertaining story without resorting to politics, propaganda, or preaching. That's exactly what we're shooting for. Since it was so entertaining and funny without resorting to farce, I watched it twice in a row. Instead of trying to shove jokes down our throats like Thor: Love and Thunder did, this film had genuine emotional moments.

The Special did not disappoint; in fact, it was more touching and meaningful than I had anticipated. I enjoyed this one-hour program tremendously. Whoa, that's some serious guts right there! Just the funniest thing. Amazing commitment to the audience.
 
The fact that this "Holiday Special" is actually about Christmas makes it vastly superior to STAR WARS's attempt at the same thing. I think it's great that James Gunn spent some time developing Mantis so that she can contribute more to the team's success. I think it's pretty cool that he did that.
 
As a whole, I thought this special was brilliant. I think it benefited from the fact that nobody knew what to expect, but also from the fact that it hit a lot of great notes typical of a Christmas film. It felt like Marvel and Hallmark were collaborating on a project in the most positive way. Fantastic holiday program! It was so funny and optimistic, and I just loved it. Oh, and Groot did seem to have a more realistic appearance than usual, especially when Peter petted him on the back at the end of the film.

My mind is still blown than Starlord and Mantis are brother and sister. It took a Holiday special to reveal that.

I heard that Gunn still has a contractual obligation to produce two more Marvel movies, and the contract he signed with DC included a clause allowing him to see that deal through to its conclusion. Oh man, it sounds like there will be a third volume as well as a holiday special. If you thought this special's sadness was bad, you haven't seen anything yet when it comes to Vol. The total for the game will be three. In essence, this is a preview of what will be included in Volume 2 of the series. 3 because this will be the last time we see the entire cast together.

My high expectations for the quality of this special were more than met. This is both hilarious and heartwarming at the same time. I'm glad they chose to use this to highlight Mantis and Drax, two characters who, because more emphasis needed to be placed on the main plot, are frequently given less screen time in the movies.

Wow, it's incredible that a straightforward and endearing Christmas special outperformed all of the major media releases that occurred throughout the year in terms of entertainment value. It's like a parody of the terrible Star Wars Christmas Special, but much, much better! I like Kevin Bacon for the same reason I like this thing. This is the proper course of action. This is a thoughtful and heartfelt action. This is the real deal when it comes to spreading the Christmas spirit!

I never expected in my life to see a serious character like Nebula dancing.Mantis,Despite her cute and innocent appearance, her casual and frequent use of her powers was terrifying. Being able to witness Mantis and Drax's agility in action against regular humans was one of my favorite parts of their time on Earth. Mantis was simultaneously terrifying and hilarious. In Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 1, Vol. 2, Infinity War, and Endgame, we saw them use their incredible strength to defeat aliens, and the results were absolutely astonishing.
 
The awkward relationship that Mantis and Drax have is hilarious. I'm so happy that Mantis got the chance to shine in the lead role in this special because I just looooove the crazy and hilarious chemistry that the two of them have together. Pom is so cute in her role as one of the Guardians, and I really hope she gets more screen time.
