Appearing on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live last night, Will Ferrell confirmed that there will not be a sequel to 2003's hit Christmas comedy ELF.

"Absolutely not," Ferrell said of the project. "I just think it would look slightly pathetic if I tried to squeeze back in the elf tights: Buddy the middle-aged elf."

ELF was directed by Jon Favreau and written by David Berenbaum. It starred Will Ferrell, James Caan, Bob Newhart, Ed Asner, and Zooey Deschanel. Released in the United States on November 7, 2003 the film grossed $225,443,451 worldwide.

The story follows one of Santa's elves as he learns of his true identity as a human and goes to New York City to meet his biological father, spreading Christmas cheer in a world of cynics as he goes.
