In The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, the Guardians, who are on a mission to make Christmas unforgettable for Quill, head to Earth in search of the perfect present. The Marvel Studios' Special Presentation stars Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, and Pom Klementieff, featuring Vin Diesel as Groot and Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Sean Gunn, and The Old 97's with Michael Rooker and Kevin Bacon.

While the upcoming special pays off the years-long joke of Peter Quill seeing Kevin Bacon as a hero, filmmaker James Gunn recently recalled that, if Bacon wasn't available to appear in the upcoming special, he had another idea in mind for who to incorporate.

"Oh, I don't know. Peter Quill was pretty young when he left Earth, so I'm not sure how much awareness he had," Gunn revealed to The Hollywood Reporter about other candidates for the role. "When I was eight, I knew who The Monkees were, but I don't know who would've been famous in 1987 that Peter would've loved when he was still on Earth. MC Hammer, maybe."
