A new character may also be introduced in the movie. There is no news yet on who this new character will be, but it could be a member of The Sovereign, who was first seen in the second The Guardians of the Galaxy movie. There are also some speculations that Will Poulter, who plays Adam Warlock, or Chukwudi Iwuji, who plays the Peacemaker, may also be the new characters.

There have also been reports of a new top dog joining the gang – Cosmo the Spacedog. Cosmo has been a fan favorite since his first appearance in the comic books in 2004. Cosmo has appeared in the first few movies with The Guardians and the Galaxy: Holiday Special may be the perfect movie to give him a larger role in the franchise.

The Guardians of the Galaxy: Holiday Special will take place between the events in Thor: Love and Thunder and The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The trailer of Thor: Love and Thunder showed that the Guardians would appear in the movie, but it is still unclear if Thor will be a part of the Holiday Special.

The last time we saw the Guardians was in the Avengers: Endgame movie, where an alternate Gamora joined their team after Thanos sacrificed the Gamora from the main timeline to obtain the soul stone. The alternate Gamora (who came from before she met any of the Guardians) left the team by the end of the Endgame, so we can assume that the Holiday Special may be about the Guardians search for Gamora.

Though we are still unsure what the plot of the movie will be, The Guardians of the Galaxy: Holiday Special has a special role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. According to director James Gunn, the movie will teach us everything we need to understand The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. No matter how silly or insignificant the events in the Holiday Special may be, they may contribute to establishing the context of Vol. 3.
