We’re in the middle of the Halloween season and many of us (myself included) are waist-deep in horror flicks right now, but Netflix wants to start getting everyone in the Christmas spirit even earlier than usual with the first teaser trailer for A Very Murray Christmas. At a quick 30 seconds in length, this is acceptable. Plus, Bill Murray.
The special stars Murray with many guest appearances, including George Clooney, Chris Rock, Miley Cyrus, Amy Poehler, Jason Schwartzman, Michael Cera, Maya Rudolph, Rashida Jones, Paul Shaffer, and Phoenix. It comes from Academy Award winning Lost in Translation and The Virgin Suicides director Sofia Coppola.

This winter, Bill Murray brings an extra-special dose of holiday cheer to Netflix with the premiere of an all-star musically driven holiday special, A Very Murray Christmas. Set inside New York City’s iconic Carlyle hotel, A Very Murray Christmas opens with Murray preparing to host a live, international holiday broadcast. After a blizzard shuts down the production, he makes the best of the situation by singing and celebrating with friends, hotel employees and anyone else who drops by.
We first heard about the special almost exactly one year ago, when Murray had this to say about the project:
“It’s not going to be live. We’re going to do it like a little movie. It won’t have a format, but it’s going to have music. It will have texture. It will have threads through it that are writing. There will be prose.
It will have a patina style and wit to it. It will be nice.”
Murray of course starred in a Christmas movie many years ago many consider a holiday favorite, 1988’s Scrooged, which was a twisted take on Charles Dickens’ old 1843 tale, A Christmas Carol.
A Very Murray Christmas is set to arrive on Netflix beginning on December 4th.
