Last month, we got the teaser for Bill Murray’s upcoming Christmas variety special on Netflix called A Very Murray Christmas and we thought it was all kinds of awesome. Today, the first trailer was released and it’s classic Bill Murray along with a star-studded powerhouse cast that includes George Clooney, Amy Poehler, Chris Rock, Miley Cyrus, Jason Schwartzman, Michael Cera, Maya Rudolph, Julie White, Dimitri Dimitrov, Jenny Lewis, Rashida Jones, Paul Shaffer, the band Phoenix and more.

The official synopsis on the A Very Murray ChristmasThis 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.

The excitement over here is palpable (and my here, I mean at my house, alone with my cat and dog). The trailer is hilarious, Murray is in perfect form, the supporting cast couldn’t be finer and the plot is tons of fun. A Very Murray Christmas may just be all I want for Christmas.

A Very Murray Christmas was written by Sofia Coppola (with whom Murray worked on Lost in Translation) Bill Murray and Mitch Glazer and is directed by Coppola. The special will be available on Netflix, December 4.
