On August 2, Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar will debut Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The newest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will come 89 days after its theatrical premiere on May 5 in India, the US, and internationally. It will be followed by The Marvels, releasing November 10 globally. Disney’s latest theatrical release, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantum Mania, had a release window of 90 days. Disney+ Hotstar will provide Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in India in five different languages: English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam.
Together with the exclusive spinoff The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, Marvel has released a teaser for the Disney+ release that serves as a reminder that the trilogy is finally complete. Disney had previously mandated a 45-day waiting period before theatrical releases could be made accessible for streaming. Recently, it looks like that number has been exaggerated and spread out, with almost a three-month gap between releases of Marvel films. Even though Avatar: The Way of Water had an unstoppable and lucrative theatrical run, earning $2.320 billion (about Rs. 19,033 crore), the film was delayed on streaming for a remarkable 173 days.
The window has traditionally been narrower for animated features, with Disney+ dropping the films within 30 days of their theatrical release. Although it has been out in theatres since June 16 (June 23 in India), the streaming release of Elemental has not yet been announced.
Earning $843.3 million (about Rs. 6,918 crore) at the worldwide box office, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 depicts the last chapter in the tale, as our ragged crew embarks on an intergalactic adventure to rescue Rocket Raccoon’s (Bradley Cooper) life. Throughout, we frequently jump into flashback segments of the obnoxious furball’s life as he recalls being used as a worthless test subject by the High Evolutionary (Chukwudi Iwuji), who intends to create ideal beings, along with his friends Wal Rus and Lylla in an experimental facility. Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) seeks to win over the version of Gamora (Zoe Saldana) originally seen in Avengers: Endgame, and there are romantic undertones throughout the film as a whole.
In addition to concluding the trilogy, this will be director James Gunn’s last Marvel Cinematic Universe film for the foreseeable future as he takes the helm at DC Studios. The director has already released many films under the new administration, including Superman: Legacy, starring David Corenswet, Rachel Brosnahan, and Nathan Fillion, and set for release on July 11, 2025. It is still unknown how the actors’ strike will impact the film’s production.
Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar users may watch Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on August 2. The Marvel film will be released in India in five different languages: English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam.
