Last night in Burbank, CA, audiences caught their first glimpse at the long awaited return of Ron Burgundy as 'Anchorman 2' screened for the very first time. We've got some of the first reactions to the highly-anticipated comedy sequel, as well as a more detailed 'Anchorman 2' review from a lucky ScreenCrush reader who was in attendance.
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
As 'Anchorman 2' winds down its cameo-packed shoot, the cast took to the streets of New York City this weekend. We'll try to avoid spoilers on why they were in New York City or who they brought with them but we had to pass this along. It seems Ron, Brick, Brian and Champ got themselves some new hairdos while in town. Namely some white man 'fros.
Has it really been nine years since Will Ferrell introduced audiences to the legendary Ron Burgundy with 'Anchorman'? Has it really taken Ferrell and co-writer/director Adam McKay almost a decade to put together a follow-up to the best comedy of the '00s? Well, that wait is almost over and the new trailer for 'Anchorman 2' suggests that Burgundry and his elite news team haven't lost a step.

Doesn't it seem like 'Anchorman 2' features everyone and their moms in some cameo or another? Recently it was revealed that Liam Neeson, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have joined the already celeb-filled cast and now we know the reason for all this star power. Let's just say, get ready to rumble -- newsmen style.
Obviously, 'Anchorman 2' has already assembled an impressive cast. Aside from Will Ferrell and his crew from the first film, the sequel has nabbed folks like Harrison Ford, Nicole Kidman, Greg Kinnear and Kristen Wiig. (Oh, and an overmatched shark.) And they're not done yet - find out who else is rumored to appear in 'Anchorman 2' after the break!
'Anchorman 2' is currently in the midst of production but it'll soon bring back our favorite manly news anchors to the big screen as 'The Legend Continues.' Will Ferrell's Ron Burgundy has already proven himself as the most masculine energy in the universe by coming face to face with some bears, besting his enemies in a street fight and being able to pull off a 'stache, but what's coming next to challenge the Legend himself? Oh, nothing, just a shark.
'Anchorman: The Legend Continues' may be assembling a murderer's row of talent for its comedic ensemble, but there is one name noticeably missing: Tina Fey, of course! Although the 'Saturday Night Live' and '30 Rock' star/genius doesn't appear to be in the cast for the upcoming Will Ferrell comedy epic, it's far too early to place any bets, especially since there's going to be cameos galore.
However, a recent interview has revealed that Fey almost starred in the first 'Anchorman' film instead of Christina Applegate.
