Comedian Chris Pratt, who plays Star Lord in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), has just confirmed that the Disney + movie “The Guardians of the Galaxy – Holiday Special” will take place after the events of “Thor: Love and Thunder”. This platform program will also bring back two characters from the Taika Waititis blockbuster.
Thor Love and Thunder : The return of Asgardians
Still directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Love and Thunder will be based on Jason Aaron’s comics. A loop in which Thor loses Mjølnir and his powers to become Odinson. The enchanted hammer is then rediscovered by Jane Foster who becomes the new goddess of thunder. The only problem is that she has terminal cancer, and each of her transformations weakens her a little more. And in the middle of it all, a whole new villain arrives: Butcher Gorr, whose goal is to murder all the gods of creation.
Taika Waititi should take liberties with the comics of Jason Aaron. Thor: Love and Thunder will in any case collect iconic characters. Along with returning Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), the film will also bring Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), Guardians of the Galaxy and Korg (Taika Waititi) back, as well as introduce new characters such as Gorr (Christian Bale) and Zeus (Russell Crowe).
Soon the two goats will return?
Thor: Love and Thunder will also introduce two new characters to the MCU audience. In the comics, when Thor loses his powers, he also loses his ability to fly through the air. He then uses two fittings directly from Norwegian legends: Tooth cutter and Tooth grinder. These are two huge flying goats that Odinson rides when he can no longer use Mjolnir. The two animals are present in the comics and will therefore be introduced to the cinema in Thor: Love and Thunder.
And both of these mammals are bound to return to the MCU in the future. In fact, according to a recent statement by Chris Pratt, Tooth cutter and tooth grinder come again The Guardians of the Galaxy – Holiday Special. expected for December 2022 at Disney +it is a 40-minute short film directed by James Gunn himself (the director of the trilogy Guardians of the Galaxy). This program will therefore tell an unprecedented tale of the Guardians during the Christmas period. In a recent interview with Screen RantChris Pratt explained it Tooth cutter and tooth grinder will be back. He specified that it is a decision of Taika Waititi for piss off his buddy James Gunn. He explains that at the end of it Thor: Love and Thunder, Guardians of the Galaxy recycles toothpicks and toothpicks. And we will find all these little people in The Guardian of the Galaxy – Holiday Special:
Waititi just wanted to block James with the goats. James has to continue where Taika left off and he put space goats on us. As a general rule, MCU directors do not impose things in the background. But I’m guessing Taika is playing by his own rules in a way … I think it’s kind of a joke with James.
Although Chris Pratt will not confirm that this furry duo is explicitly returning Guardians of the Galaxy: Holiday Specialthis is the most logical option since The TV movie takes place directly after the events in Thor: Love and Thunder. At least it’s a way for the two filmmakers to have fun. It must be said that Taika Waititi and James Gunn have a rather similar cinema, led by a pop, colorful and offbeat approach that is much appreciated by the general public. As for Toothgnasher and Toothgrinder, they could have appeared from the first film of the franchise Thor, but Marvel Studios found the idea too absurd at the time … See you on July 13, 2022 in the cinema for Thor: Love and Thunder.
