A human baby raised as an elf. A city where no one remembers the true meaning of Christmas. Will Ferrell (Saturday Night Live, Superstar) stars as Buddy, a human raised in the North Pole to be an elf. After wreaking havoc in the elf community due to his size, Buddy heads to New York City to find his place in the world, and track down his father. But life in the big city is not all sugarplums and candy canes. His father is a "Scrooge" and his eight-year-old stepbrother doesn't believe in Santa. Even the snowmen aren't friendly in New York. In fact, they don't even speak. Worst of all, everyone has forgotten the true meaning of Christmas, and it's up to Buddy and his simple elf ways to win over his family, realize his destiny and, ultimately, save Christmas for New York and the world.
NBC is bringing in the holiday spirit with the stop-motion hourlong animated special Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas, set to air Tuesday, Dec. 16 at 8 p.m. Based on the popular film Elf and the hit Broadway show Elf: The Musical, the special will star four-time Emmy Award winner Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory) as Buddy.
Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas combines the humor and spirit of both the beloved 2003 holiday film, which drew glowing reviews and earned $173 million at the domestic box office, and the hit Broadway production. The special is an all-new retelling of Buddy's delightfully absurd yet heartwarming story and blends the look and feel of the stop-motion animated Christmas specials of the past with the sharp sensibility of the modern-day classic holiday film.Read More

Elf: According to The Hollywood Reporter, From the introduction of DVDs in the late 1990s, New Line Home Entertainment has been at the forefront of crafting bonus materials, and Tuesday's release of Elf brings bonus features to a new level, according to NLHE executives.
The main difference between the Elf DVD and the Lord of the Rings DVDs is that the extras on Rings DVDs are designed to bring the viewer more into the film, whereas the bonus features and especially the interactivity of the Elf DVD with all of its games and beyond-the-movie features make it more of a toy, NLHE vp content development Michael Mulvihill said.Read More
