"Elmo's Christmas Countdown", Sesame Street's 2007 television special, is coming to DVD. Written by Joey Mazzarino and directed by Gary Halvorson, this holiday production is full of music, comedy, an holiday cheer. The special is currently slated for a deluxe DVD release on October 14, 2008.
Christmas finds itself in trouble when Stiller the Elf's magical Christmas Counter-Downer breaks down. It is now up to Elmo and Abby Cadabby to help find the missing parts and get the official countdown to Christmas back on track. The giant musical extravaganza features many special guests - including Alicia Keys, Sheryl Crow, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Hudson, Brad Paisley, Ty Pennington, Anne Hathaway, Tony Sirico, Steve Schirripa, Kevin James (as Santa Claus), and Ben Stiller (as the voice of Stiller the Elf).
I will be sure to keep you updated with more information on the release of this, and other Sesame Street home video titles, as soome as more details become available.
