Santa Brought Us Our Wish With the New "Guardians of the Galaxy" Holiday Special

Is it November 25 yet?

We know, we know. It's way too early to start making plans for Christmas...but is it? It's not our fault that the brand new trailer for the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special has us looking at Christmas lights online! It seems like we weren't the only ones ready to jump into the season — or maybe they were just really excited to get a special holiday treat from the GOTG gang. 

The trailer was dropped by none-other than Star Lord himself, Chris Pratt. "The holidays are coming … and so are *DUN DUN DUUUUN* The Guardians," he wrote on Twitter. 

We're not ready! According to Collider, the holiday special takes place before the upcoming third Guardians of the Galaxy movie. The story will follow the gang as they fly to earth to try and cheer Peter Quill up with a Christmas present (the poor guy is still heartbroken that Gamora is gone). And we think it's safe to say they find the perfect gift — Kevin Bacon. Yep, you read that right. THE Kevin Bacon. 

People in the comments section of Twitter were positively pumped. "Can't wait Mr. Pratt, miss having you and the Guardians in my life," wrote @TongeGavin. "Yay! GUARDIANS ARE BACK! Love this! All I want for Christmas is to meet the legendary Star Lord! THIS HOLIDAY SPECIAL IS GOING TO BE SO GOOD! CAN’T WAIT!" @RachelW94 exclaimed. "Oh. My. Goodness. Gracious. That looks classic! Lol," @AFordCSF added. "This looks wonderfully silly, I'm in," @wafflemaker2022 agreed. 

Collider reports that GOTG regulars, Dave Bautista (who plays Drax), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Sean Gunn (Kraglin), Vin Diesel (Groot), and Bradley Cooper (Rocket) will be in the special. Michael Rooker, (who played Quill's adoptive father in the first movie) will allegedly reprise his role as Yondu. Although it's not clear in what capacity. 

Okay, now we really can't wait. The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special will stream on Disney+ on November 25.
