John Cho and Kal Penn - 'A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas'Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -- Harold and Kumar are back for a holiday spectacular only they could pull off -- "A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas."
The Christmas movie picks up six year after the pair's last adventure and they are no longer buddies. The two have grown apart and each has a new best friend.
"Through the magic of Christmas, we come together," Cho said. ”In a strange way, this is a traditional Christmas movie, in terms of that -- the friendship, the rekindling of all that …," Penn said.
As the pair reunite, there is a Christmas tree fire that sends the duo on a search for the perfect replacement.
In true Harold-and-Kumar style, mayhem and hilarity ensue. The tagline is, "Get mistle-toasted." That pretty much says it all. "We're hoping that the 3D brings people the theaters," Cho said. "I think we have a really good 3D movie; it looks terrific."
The first Harold and Kumar movie, "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle,", which holds a special place in April Warnecke's heart, came out in 2004 and quickly became a cult favorite.

"The fans really found this movie on DVD," Penn said.
"Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay" followed in 2008.
Like the previous two Harold and Kumar movies, Neil Patrick Harris once again plays a fictionalized version of himself. After all, no Harold and Kumar adventure would be complete without him.
So, will there be a fourth Harold and Kumar movie? Nothing is in the works yet, but Penn and Cho say the characters are fun to play. A lot will depend on how "3D Christmas" does in theaters.
Harold and Kumar -- ahem… Cho and Penn -- say they hope the 3D experience will be a draw.
"The first two [movies] were kind of DVD phenomena …," Cho said. "I think [3D Christmas] just a terrific movie to see during the holidays with other people -- with other degenerates."
"A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas," the third Harold & Kumar movie, opens Nov. 4. It's rated R for "strong crude and sexual content, graphic nudity, pervasive language, drug use and some violence."
