NBC Teases New ‘Elf’ Holiday Special

Stop-motion animated holiday special is an irreverent mashup of the beloved feature film ‘Elf’ and the hit Broadway show ‘Elf: The Musical.’

NBC has released a new teaser for its upcoming stop-motion animated holiday special, Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas.

Airing Tuesday, December 16 at 8/7c, Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas features the voice of The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons as everyone’s favorite elf.

Produced by Screen Novelties for Warner Bros. Animation, Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas is an irreverent mashup of the beloved feature film Elf and the hit Broadway show Elf: The Musical.

The holiday special is an all-new retelling of Buddy’s delightfully absurd, yet heartwarming story, and blends the look and feel of the classic stop-motion animated Christmas TV specials of yesteryear with the sharp sensibility of the modern-day classic holiday film. With a score by Matthew Sklar and Christopher Guardino, the voice cast also includes Mark Hamill, Ed Asner, Fred Armisen, Jay Leno, Matt Lauer, Gilbert Gottfried, Kate Micucci, Rachael MacFarlane, Max Charles and Steve Higgins.
