The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special is All About Innocent Fun
The television film primarily centers on Drax the Destroyer and Mantis, with other characters like Peter Quill, Nebula, Groot, and Rocket by their side. The Guardians induct Cosmo as a new member and start re-building Knowhere after purchasing it from the Collector. With Christmas approaching, Kraglin Obfonteri narrates to the Guardians the story about Yondu Udonta ruining Peter Quill’s childhood Christmas party. Mantis consults Drax about finding the perfect Christmas gift for Quill to help him recover from the depression from Gamora going away. She also reveals to Drax that she is Quill’s half-sister as both have the same father but refrains from disclosing it to Quill, fearing that it would remind him of his father’s misdeeds. Finally, they agree to make a trip to Earth and find out about Kevin Bacon, Quill’s childhood hero.
After landing on Earth, Mantis and Drax try to locate Bacon and finally find him at Beverly Hills. Terrified by the duo’s looks, Bacon tries to flee but is rendered powerless by Mantis, who drives him into a trance. However, on returning to Knowhere, Mantis and Drax discover to their utter disappointment, that Bacon isn’t a real hero but an actor. Despite the Guardians arranging a Christmas celebration to cheer Quill, he is very upset on knowing about Bacon’s kidnapping and demands his immediate return home. Bacon celebrates Christmas with the Guardians before returning home. In the end, Quill and Mantis reconcile as Quill tells the story of Udonta accepting the Christmas gifts sent by Quill and, in exchange giving him blasters.
