Ron Burgundy has clearly blown into his mighty conch and summoned his trusty news team to assemble in the 1980’s, if these stills from Anchorman: The Legend Continues are to be believed. Will Ferrell is back as Burgundy, and it’s unclear whether he and Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) will ever be married on top of that mountain with garlands of fresh herbs, but they certainly look happy traipsing down the streets of New York City together. When you survive a bear attack together, you can survive anything as a couple.
The whole team, including Brick (Steve Carell), Brian (Paul Rudd), and Champ (David Koechner) have left their local station in San Diego for a revolutionary 24-hour news channel in the Big Apple called…GNN. This is the 80’s, so the overwhelming wall of news coverage that we’re used to isn’t a thing yet. And these are the brave men (and woman) who are being trusted to bring it to the world. From the second image, it’s clear that Burgundy is still their faithful leader.
Also, take a moment to just soak in their early 80’s fashion. Good to know that Champ’s cowboy hat survived the 70’s. Take a look at the second still after the break.
Still can’t wait for the long-awaited sequel? Take a look at the trailer, and what our own Scott Beggs had to say about it here. It’s kind of a big deal.
Anchorman: The Legend Continues is in theaters December 20th. [IndieWire]
