All You Need To Know About Guardians Of The Galaxy 3: The Cast, Release Date, & More

'Guardians of the Galaxy 3' is one of the most highly-anticipated upcoming projects from Marvel. From the release date to the returning (and new) cast members, here's everything we know about the movie.

There’s much more to come in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including a third Guardians of the Galaxy movie. The first two films were hugely popular and dominated at the box office, so it’s not surprising that Marvel/Disney would create another sequel.

Guardians of the Galaxy was released in theaters in 2014 and brought to life the superhero team of the same name from Marvel Comics. The sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, came out three years later with the same ensemble cast, plus some new characters.

Release Date Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is scheduled to be released in theatres on May 5, 2023. The film’s initial release date was set for May 1, 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic obviously changed.

About the Story A trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 hasn’t been release yet, so plot details have remained under wraps. Obviously, the film will focus on the members of the Guardians of the Galaxy who are outlaws that ban together to protect the galaxy from threats.

Cast Your favorite Guardians of the Galaxy stars will be back for the third film. That includes Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Vin Diesel as Groot, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Karen Gillan as Nebula, and Pom Klementieff as Mantis

Crew James Gunn is directing the third film, as he did with the first two. In July 2018, James was actually fired by Disney after controversial tweets resurfaced on the internet.

Holiday Special The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special will premiere on Disney+ in December 2022, five months before the third film comes out. The TV special is created, written, and directed by James Gunn and was filmed during the time of production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
