Will Ferrell's latest "Legend" doesn't arrive until December, but he's keepin' it classy until then. In a brand-new trailer for "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" that arrived Saturday (May 18), your favorite San Diego news team picks up right where they left off.
The trailer starts with a dramatic voice-over name-dropping some of the greatest men of our time — "Jesus, MacArthur, Jay-Z" — insisting that "the great ones always return. And when they do, one thing's for sure: Their hair will be perfect."
The lights go up on Ron Burgundy (Ferrell), Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), Champ Kind (David Koechner) and everyone's favorite dim-witted meteorologist, Brick Tamland (Steve Carell).
"We haven't seen you in a while, America," Ferrell says with his trademark smirk. "You haven't changed a bit."
"I've got liquor breath, and I wanna be your friend," Koechner chimes in, followed by Rudd revealing his favorite new scent: "I got a new cologne; it's called Venom. It's pretty much 100 percent snake venom."
"Happy Easter!" Carell exclaims.
"No, Brick," Ferrell instructs. "You have to say something fun about the movie. We're all saying a little individual thought, almost like a little fun catchphrase."
"Always make sure the parents are around if you hug a child!" Carell offers.
"Just say 'hello,' " Ferrell instructs, followed by Carell's compliance: "Hello!"

But we couldn't end this reintroduction without Ferrell's most famous line from the 2004 original, "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy." "Hey! Fat face! You! You stay classy."
