A week ago, Kevin Feige, the head of Disney’s Marvel Studios, announced that the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will feature a two and a half-hour long crossover with Sesame Street, entitled “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.5: Rocket Learns to Share.”
The film, which is set to be the MCU’s first G-rated film, will feature all of the main “Sesame Street” cast members on an intergalactic adventure with the Guardians of the Galaxy as they attempt to find the legendary Kindness Orb and teach Rocket to share his blasters.
“We are very excited for this film’s release and hope to collaborate with the wonderful staff of Sesame Workshop more in the near future,” a spokesman for Mr. Feige said. Mr. Feige himself could not be reached for comment.
The movie, which is scheduled to be released in the U.S. on April 1st, 2020, is designed to appeal to “Sesame Street” fans and those who are new to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
When asked if the film will be canon, the spokesman said, “The film will be canon to the MCU, and the film’s plot will tie into ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.’”
The spokesperson declined to comment on further casting or direction details. However, recent insider reports appear to reveal that Chris Pratt will not be reprising his role as Star Lord. Instead, Justin Bieber will portray the character in a rubber mask that mimics Mr. Pratt’s likeness.
Test footage was screened at a cinema convention in Walla Walla, Washington. Reception to the footage was generally mixed to negative, with many citing excessive kid-friendliness.
“That’s the point,” the spokesperson said. “Please accept that we are trying to reach a younger demographic.”
