The first full-length trailer of Anchorman: The Legend Continues has been released with Will Ferrell back in the role of newsreader Ron Burgundy.

The comedy sequel, due out in December, follows the original cast to New York where Ron has been scouted for a 24-hour news channel.

As the coiffed news anchor is seen saying in the trailer: "I'm gonna do the thing that God put Ron Burgundy on earth to do - have salon quality hair and read the news."

It looks as though Ron could have a new lady in his life, played by Meagan Good, with scenes showing the pair out for dinner, and Ron meeting and offending her family.

Brick, the mentally challenged weatherman played by Steve Carell, looks like he could be in for a bit of romance too with a new character played by Bridesmaids star Kristen Wiig.

The returning cast include Paul Rudd as Brian Fantana, David Koechner as Champ Kind, Christina Applegate as Veronica Corningstone and Vince Vaughn as Wes Mantooth.

Anchorman's sequel has attracted an all-star cast since the first hit film in 2004, with appearances lined up for Tina Fey, Nicole Kidman, Liam Neeson, Harrison Ford, Kirsten Dunst, Sacha Baron Cohen and Kanye West.

John C Reilly and Luke Wilson will also be back in their roles as rival newscasters.

Anchorman: The Legend Continues is due to be released in cinemas on December 20.
