Hindi dubbing update
There is a sad update for Indian fans because looks like it will not be dubbed in local languages.
Guardians of The Galaxy Holiday Special will not release in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam. It will only be available in English.
This happened with Werewolf By Night Hindi release as well. WandaVision and What If are still missing the dubbed versions and many fans are still asking for them.
OTT streaming platform
Like all Marvel Studios content, this Christmas Special of Guardians of The Galaxy will be available on Disney plus. And that means in India, the OTT platform will be Disney plus Hotstar.
Here is the announcement from their Twitter handle:
