[WATCH] Ron Burgundy and crew return in “Anchorman 2″ trailer

Anchorman Movie posterLegendary news anchorman Ron Burgundy is back, and he’s more “burgundy-er” than ever before.

That’s right, the fictional 1970’s news team has reunited for a sequel, “Anchorman: The Legend Continues,” which is set to arrive in theaters on December 20.

This time around, the movie takes place in the 1980s as the group is recruited by a 24-hour news channel to anchor their coverage.

“Jesus, MacArthur, Jay-Z…the great ones always return,” the narrator says in the trailer. “And when they do, one thing is for sure – their hair will be perfect.”

While the sequel looks promising based on the official trailer released Wednesday, it’s going to be hard to live up to the “awesome-ness” which was the first movie. Nonetheless, fans can rest assured that the movie will be entertaining as we know that Burgundy plans to do “the thing that God put Ron Burgundy on this Earth to do: Have salon-quality hair and read the news.”

Most of the original cast has also returned for the sequel. Joining Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Steve Carell and Paul Rudd will be “Bridesmaid’s” Kristin Wiig and “X-Men’s” James Marsden, as well as cameos by Nicole Kidman, Jim Carrey and Sacha Baron Cohen.

The Newseum in Washington, D.C. has also geared up for the sequel, adding an exhibit on the fictional anchor and his Mötley Crüe of sidekicks to its collection of historical newspapers and film footage. The exhibit, which will feature costumes and props from the 2004 movie as well as a re-creation of the KVWN-TV anchor desk and news set, will open in November and close next August.

“I’m literally trapped in a glass case of emotion,” Burgundy said in a press release on the museum’s website.
