In mid-December 2014 NBC aired a stop motion animated special called Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas, based on the 2003 hit movie titled Elf. The television special was well received by critics and seen by millions. The holiday musical movie combines the humor and spirit of the beloved holiday film Elf with songs from the Broadway hit Elf: The Musical. Warner Brothers Home Entertainment has announced the show will become available on BluRay on October 20th, 2015.
Buddy’s Musical Christmas tells the story of Buddy the elf, and his quest to reunite with the human father he never knew existed. While Buddy’s sincerity and idealism are commonplace at the North Pole, these attributes are rejected in cynical New York City. But through song, dance, and relentless good cheer, Buddy rekindles the spirit of Christmas for the entire city.
The film also features a voice cast that includes Jim Parsons, Mark Hamill, Kate Micucci and Ed Asner, and is presented in 1080p with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround. Special features include “Elf-in’ All The Way: Inside Buddy’s Recording Sessions.”
It is expected to have a street price of $14.99.
