James Gunn revealed some interesting details about his first encounter with Kevin Bacon, which took place 36 years ago.
I approached him and told him, “Mr. Kevin Bacon, you are my favourite actor, and so is Mr. Peter Falk.” Gunn remembers.
In the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, a version of Kevin Bacon that is enthusiastic about Christmas is taken hostage by Mantis and Drax as a gift for Peter Quill, who is an avid fan of the series. It’s a funny part of an otherwise strange tribute to the “tis the season” movies Gunn watched as a child. In addition to this, it turned out to be the ideal way to get away from the filming of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
It was beneficial to cleanse the palate by working on something much goofier, according to James Gunn, who said that the next sequel had considerably bigger stakes than the earlier part of the franchise, which is why they worked on something like that.
