Plot and Production
Will Ferrell told the public a little bit about the plot of Elf 2 in an interview. "Well, first of all, I was a huge fan of getting back in that elf suit, but hey if I get a lot of laughs it's worth it! But the plot is basically going to be about Buddy meeting his long lost cousins Lil' Elfie played by Kevin Hart and Tim played by Jim Carrey, so I won't be the only one rocking an elf outfit!" said Ferrell. Jim Carrey mentioned a little bit about his role and some more of the plot. "The story will indeed be epic as the trio of elves will have to settle their differences and work together to save Hannakuh as a mysterious force or at least that's all I can say it is, for now, is making people grouchy and people are losing their Christmas spirit," says Carrey. Production for Elf 2 began after Ferrell got done filming Anchorman 2.
