Guardians Of The Galaxy Holiday Special Brings Kevin Bacon Into The MCU

Guardians Of The Galaxy Holiday Special’s very first trailer was released yesterday, and it revealed that the Disney Plus Marvel Studios special will introduce the real-life Kevin Bacon into the MCU. This is something that I really wasn’t expecting to see in the upcoming Holiday Special.

The trailer really won me over. To be honest, I didn’t really know what to expect from this upcoming Holiday Special on Disney Plus before watching the trailer. I really liked the fact that it is directed by James Gunn, who also wrote the special’s script. However, this trailer demonstrated that it’s going to be something different from what we’ve seen in the MCU so far.

There does seem to be an element of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off in the special. That said, there was a lot of that movie in Spider-Man: Homecoming. However, it seems like the Guardians Of The Galaxy Holiday Special is going to turn it up to eleven.
