“Anchorman” legend Ron Burgundy is coming back to the big screen, and now there's visual proof.

A teaser trailer for “Anchorman 2,” starring Will Ferrell as the inimitable Burgundy, will air with all showings of “The Dictator," starting with midnight showings Tuesday night.

Will Ferrell, who starred as Burgundy in the first film, announced that the long-awaited sequel was finally a go at the end of March. Burgundy’s Twitter account then revealed that a trailer would debut Tuesday, posting, “Dont get Twirter. Anchorman2 teaser w Dictator tom night. Dont know what a teaser is. World is crazy? Having a scotch.”

In that tweet, Burgundy also posted a photo of himself, looking dapper as ever.

Reports of the trailer surfaced a couple of days ago as people returned from advanced screenings of the Sacha Baron Cohen film talking about the trailer.

Then writer and producer Adam McKay hinted at it.

“See the Dictator (I worked on it and it's crazy funny), in addition to Campaign trailer with Zach and Will there's another treat before it," he tweeted.
