James Gunn has confirmed there will be a 'Guardians of the Galaxy' holiday special.
The 50-year-old director took to Twitter on Thursday (Apr 22) to post a photograph of the front of a script, which read: "The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special. Written by James 'Long Elf' Gunn".
Captioning the tweet, he wrote: "This is the wrapping. The present is inside. #GotGHS (sic)"
However, in true fashion, James seemingly didn't give too much else away.
When someone asked if it would be like the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special or "much better", James simply replied: "In full disclosure, I loved the Star Wars Holiday Special as a kid."
And when one fan asked if "this is based after Thor 4 but before Guardians [of the Galaxy] 3", James confirmed that was the case.
Responding to another fan, he wrote: "It’s a television special not a movie."
The filmmaker admitted he had been working on this project for a little while. He explained: "I wrote the treatment years ago and just finally finished the script."
It is expected to be out on Disney+ around Christmas time in 2022. James' next movie is the DC superhero adventure, The Suicide Squad, opening on July 29. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is expected to start production later this year for a 2023 release. — BANG SHOWBIZ
