Guardians of the Galaxy Bought Knowhere From the Collector

The Holiday Special takes Guardians from living on a spaceship to Knowhere. The Guardians were seen in the interstellar mining colony in a severed head of an ancient celestial being. Following its last appearance in Infinity War, it was assumed that Knowhere’s owner died after Thanos arrived to claim the Reality Stone.

Director James Gunn cleared the confusion after one fan asked him, “How did Guardians buy Knowhere, and from who?”  He replied to the fan saying that the Guardians bought Knowhere from the Collector.

The director revealed that the Guardians bought the colony from its previous owner, the Collector. As for how, the director revealed, “Although the Guardians are sometimes heroes, they work as mercenaries & it brings in a fair amount of money.” He also revealed that it was “a burnt-out husk” after Thanos’ attack in Infinity War and the Guardians have been rebuilding it.

Knowhere Will be Guardians’ New Base in Volume 3

The Holiday Special confirms that the Guardians will have a new base in the Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3. Volume 3 is set to release next year and is also expected to be the last film in the franchise. The characters introduced in the Holiday Special are expected to appear in the threequel.

The severed Celestial head also served as the base for Guardians in Comics. In comics, Star-Lord reforms the team with Mantis, Adam Warlock, Phyla-Vell, Rocket Raccoon, Drax, Groot, and Gamora and they had Knowhere as their base. All of these characters except Phyla-Vell are expected to appear in Volume 3.

The Holiday Special has all these characters except Gamora and Adam Warlock. Will Poulter is expected to portray Adam Warlock in Volume 3.

As for Gamora, Thanos killed her in Infinity War. But there has been no update about the character following the appearance of her past self during the events of Endgame.

The Guardians are probably still looking for her. And not being able to locate her could be the reason Peter Quill seems so glum in the Holiday Special. However, she is expected to return in Volume 3.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special is available to stream on Disney+.
