And lo, unto us A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas was given. EW has the first details about the threequel, and so far it sounds amazing. Six years after losing touch and replacing each other with “surrogate best friends” Tom Lennon and College Humor’s Amir Blumenfeld, Kumar and Harold must rekindle their friendship after accidentally destroying the Christmas tree owned by Harold’s father-in-law (played by Danny Trejo). According to director Todd Strauss-Schulson, “I wanted this to be a ‘Trojan horse’ movie. The idea was that it should look like a Christmas movie, and at the end of the movie you should feel the warm fuzzies like you’re watching Miracle on 34th Street. But, like a Trojan horse, it’s filled with the most subversive, dirty [stuff]. There’s lesbian nuns, pedophile priests… all this stuff, [but] people walk away feeling like they’ve just seen this really sweet Christmas movie.”
Most importantly, Neil Patrick Harris will return after surviving a shotgun blast outside a brothel, only to end up visiting a fabulous afterlife. Says Strauss-Schulson, “Neil is in this show-stopping Christmas spectacular dance number. He’s on crack, he goes to heaven and he meets Jesus, he attempts rape, he abuses a robot, he’s telekinetic. It’s crazy. Straight-up crazy. It’s great.” God bless NPH, everyone.
