Guardians of the Galaxy: Getting Closer to Christmas – Kevin Bacon on his role in the Disney+ special
Guardians of the Galaxy: Approaching the Holidays is an upcoming Disney+ special that takes place between the events of the second and third films and follows a team of MCU space heroes. The heroes will travel to Earth to find an unforgettable Christmas gift for Peter Quill to cheer him up. As a result, they decide to kidnap Kevin Bacon and give him for Christmas.
In Guardians of the Galaxy… Peter Quill (played by Chris Pratt) was a big fan Kevin Baconwho starred in his favorite movie – Footloose. Hence the presence of this actor in the special film, who highlighted his role in an interview with Access. He admitted that the production contains many elements that fans expect. He added that his dynamic with the Guardians will be fun and touching.
I don’t want to spoil too much, but I can say that I’m playing myself. I can say that there is a connection to the world of the Guardians of the Galaxy and there is music involved. I can say that Guardians will be there too, and we’ll have a chance to interact in a fun and I think kind of touching way, which is everything a Christmas episode should be.
During the interview, Bacon talked about his impressions while at the screening Guardians of the Galaxy his name came up.
I was completely shocked. I went to the cinema on opening weekend to see this movie because I thought it looked great and I like Marvel movies and I also worked with James Gunn on a small production called cool few years ago. And I had no idea about it. He never told me about it, and neither did Marvel. And I was sitting in the cinema, and suddenly they started talking about me, and I almost fell off my chair. I looked around at the people, just thinking, “Are you hearing what I’m hearing?”
He then took his wife, Kyra Sedgwick, to the screening. He hadn’t told her anything about the mention, which was why she was shocked too. It is worth noting that the actress will have her voice cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy: The holidays are getting closer.
In addition, he said that starring in this Christmas movie wasn’t just his idea James Gunnwho is its director. The actor agreed without reading the script. In the summer of 2021, scenes with him were filmed. He admitted that he had a great time on set and is happy to be a part of this production. He added that apart from Sean Gunn (James’s brother), he had not yet had the opportunity to work with any of the cast, but he appreciated that they were very hospitable, helpful and kind to him. Bacon has been starring in rather serious and dark films lately, so he enjoyed the opportunity to work on a “silly” film where he just acted, falling over Christmas trees, which he enjoyed. In addition, he revealed that he will perform a Christmas song by Old ’97 (probably about Here It IS Christmas Time) with the Guardians.
