This coming December 16th, 8 pm, NBC will be celebrating the holidays with the stop-motion hour-long special Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas. The special is based on the popular film Elf and its hit broadway spin-off. The voice cast will include The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons as Buddy.
In Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas, Santa Claus narrates the story of Buddy’s travels to New York City in order to meet the father he never knew he had. Along the way, he manages to transform the lives of everyone he meets while opening his father’s eyes to the magic of Christmas. The story is a fresh retelling of the 2003 holiday film, with a new stop-motion style that marries the visual stylings of classic Christmas specials with the sharp sensibilities of a modern day holiday film.
