'Anchorman 2' Trailer: Will Ferrell, Steve Carell & Paul Rudd Are Back in Kooky Character! (VIDEO)

anchorman 2After being promised a sequel to the sleeper comedy hit Anchorman a few months back, we've been gifted with something to really sink our teeth into: A trailer. Well, a teaser trailer. Okay, it's pretty much just a comedy sketch like any you'd find on FunnyorDie.com, starring Ron Burgundy and the Channel Four's News Team (in character/costume!).

But hey! We haven't seen these guys since 1975 2004, so at this point, we'll take what we can get. Not to mention that Anchorman 2 won't even begin filming until February 2013, and thus, it won't be until mid-to-late 2013 that the flick comes out. So, if you think about it, even teasing us now with this pseudo-trailer was really a very generous gesture!


As you'll see, the clip has the same totally out-there, tongue-in-cheek tone we've come to love and expect from this franchise. Like ... just consider this voice-over script for a moment:

In the age when the dinosaurs' roar greeted the dawn and apes rode the winged horse across the valley of Eli, there was a lone stranger who offered comfort, wisdom and overly sexual neck massages. It was said he would one day return. That day has come.

I mean, WHAT?! Haha, ridiculous! But also, amazing, of course. Here's the teaser in its (short but entertaining) entirety.

Funny Or Die - Exclusive Anchorman 2 Teaser

I absolutely adore Steve Carell. For some reason, his character is the one who really cracks me up. And of course, Paul Rudd is adorable. But ultimately, we know Will Ferrell's kooky Ron Burgundy is going to make the film a hilarious (afternoon) delight. And although we have quite a ways to go to see the finished product, I'm sure there will be much more where this clip came from -- sooner rather than later.

What do you think about the teaser? Are you psyched for Anchorman 2?
