Drax and Mantis return in the official poster for the Guadians of the Galaxy-themed Holiday Special.

Yesterday, James Gunn offered fans a first look at the Guadians of the Galaxy-themed Holiday Special that’s coming to Disney Plus. Now, Marvel has unveiled a poster for the special, featuring Dave Bautista as Drax and Pom Klementieff as Mantis. Check out the one-sheet below.

Directed by James Gunn, The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special sees Drax and Mantis traveling to Earth to kidnap the only person that can cheer-up Star-Lord: Kevin Bacon. The special arrives on Disney Plus on November 25th.

The Holiday Special takes place between the events of Thor: Love and Thunder and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Gunn has previously said that it runs for about 40 minutes, making it slightly shorter than Marvel’s Werewolf by Night.

The Guardians recently made an appearance in Thor: Love and Thunder. Here is the official synopsis for the Marvel Studios movie:

The film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.

Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Love and Thunder stars Chris Hemsworth, Christian Bale, Tessa Thompson, Jaimie Alexander, Taika Waititi, Russell Crowe, Natalie Portman, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper.
