For two decades, Will Ferrel’s character, Buddy the Elf, has been delighting viewers across the world each holiday season. And now, theater goers can relive the magic of the movie on the big screen for its 20th anniversary!
According to sources it will be in theaters beginning November 17, 2023.
Of course, none other than the city it was filmed in will be honoring the occasion. Not only will the Empire State Building celebrate Elf’s 20th birthday by sparkling green and yellow on Tuesday, November 7th, but it will offer three different viewings of the film between December 3rd, 10th, & 17th
Rumor has it that New Yorkers will be able to indulge in Buddy’s four food groups—candy, candy canes, candy corn and syrup—at a pop-up candy cart from Discovery for guests heading up to the observatory on November 7th.
“For 20 years now, the film Elf has securely cemented itself as a treasured holiday tradition, touching the hearts of generations of viewers,” said Robert Oberschelp, GM, North America and SVP, Global Franchise Management & Brand Product, Warner Bros. Discovery. “Fueled by the infectious holiday spirit of Buddy the Elf, Warner Bros. Discovery is going all in with an extraordinary lineup of ways to watch Elf and engage with products, experiences, activations, and so much more, to invite fans to partake in this remarkable milestone anniversary.”
