The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special Just Made MCU Canon That Much Weirder

The Guardians of the Galaxy have moved to Disney Plus for a Christmas celebration at the Guardians of the Galaxy Christmas Special, and unsurprisingly, it’s full of Easter eggs and references. Of course, the whole gang has fun and even heads to Earth, but perhaps the most amazing thing about the special is what it adds to the Marvel Cinematic Universe canon.

And in case you weren’t convinced this story is indeed official from the MCU, director James Gunn took to Twitter to confirm the accuracy of some of the special’s more outlandish jokes. So here’s a look at some of the things Gunn added to the superhero universe, and some long-standing theories he confirmed (again):

[Ed. note: This story contains spoilers for the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special.]

Nebula really stole Bucky’s arm

Nothing beats an especially thoughtful gift around the holidays, especially one you never thought you’d receive, and in the holiday special, Nebula proves she knows that more than anyone by gifting Rocket with the Winter Soldier’s detached arm. Of course, more than a few fans were curious as to whether or not Bucky parted ways with him willingly, and Gunn is here to confirm that it may have been a fight, but that the spirit of goodwill, kindness, and Christmas won out in the end. , about.

Baby Groot is not the same Groot as the original Groot

Gunn has been tweeting about it since 2018, but it’s even more apparent in this special than in the past: Baby Groot is a different Groot than the original Groot. In Gunn’s own description, this Groot is the progeny from the original and as their bodies begin to develop differently, that becomes increasingly clear.

Guardians of the Galaxy’s Holiday Special Groot is 100% CGI

Gunn has been inundated with Twitter questions about how much of Groot is handy this time around, and it turns out to be exactly 0%.

According to the director, Groot is completely digital and he takes any questions about the practice as a huge compliment to the team of visual artists who worked on the project.

GoBots are canon MCU now

GoBots, the pre-Transformers transforming toys, are now officially a thing in the MCU. This isn’t really important, it doesn’t change anything (for now) and probably doesn’t matter (also for now). But there you go. Thank you James Gunn.

Of course, longtime fans of the MCU and Guardians of the Galaxy are already quite familiar with Gunn’s vocal presence on Twitter and his enjoyable habit of answering tons of fan questions on the platform.

But this round of canon confirmations seems particularly amusing considering that Gunn is now playing for Marvel’s rival team by heading up the DC Universe for Warner Bros. This gives each and every one of Gunn’s tweets an extra layer of fun considering that you will not have to face most of its consequences after guardians of the galaxy vol. 3his last planned MCU movie at the moment, will be released on May 5, 2023.
