A full trailer has finally arrived for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues after a few teaser trailer have hit the internet. The sequel to Anchorman: The Lengend of Ron Burgundy from 2004 comes out on Dec. 20 and features the same Channel 4 news team; Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner.
Christina Applegate will be back for the sequel as Burngundy’s wife, and Kristen Wiig will play Carell’s Brick Tamland character’s love interest. Other new faces we will see are Harrison Ford, Megan Good, Meryl Streep, Kanye West and more.
Just Jared notes the news team is trying to find their niche in today’s news, which raises Burgundy’s question of “why can’t the news be fun?” Another trailer shows the crew moving to New York City.
As we previously reported, the first official look we got at the Channel 4 news team ahead of the sequel’s release was in August when the posed on the cover of EW. We also saw a teaser in May and the first trailer in June.
The film will be directed by Adam McKay after years of trying to get it done. Carrell even said, ”We all resigned ourselves to the fact that it was never going to happen. It just didn’t seem to get any traction.”
