In the special, Mantis and Drax go on a mission to get Peter Quill (Star-Lord) the perfect Christmas present (even if that present is Kevin Bacon!) The special was written and directed by James Gunn and includes a brand new Christmas Song with a bit of help from Kevin Bacon and The Old 97s.
Be on the lookout for the group in the series itself where they play an alien band. Gunn said, “When I was writing the first song in there, ‘I Don’t Know What Christmas Is (But Christmastime Is Here)’, I needed help. I called up Rhett Miller the lead singer of the Old’s, and we got together and wrote that song. At that point, I’m like, well, I’m actually going to make you guys the band in the show.” They have two original songs in the show the second is “Here It is Christmas Time.”
