As Christmas quickly approaches, many will wonder where they can watch the 2003 holiday classic "Elf." The movie, which stars Will Ferrell as William "Buddy" Hobbs and Zooey Deschanel as Jovie, has become a fan favorite over the years. Where can you find it this year?

Unfortunately, for those with streaming services such as Netflix or Hulu, it appears as though they will have to look elsewhere for the comedy. As stated by ScreenRant, various platforms may put less emphasis on acquiring holiday movies, which may be behind the film's absence.

However, those who subscribe to Direct TV or FuboTV will be able to stream it. FuboTV offers a free trial for one week, which can be found here.

Aside from the aforementioned services, there are other places where you can catch the Jon Favreau-directed film. Anyone looking to rent or buy the family-friendly movie is in luck as there are a variety of options available. An HD version can be rented from YouTube, iTunes, Amazon Prime, and others starting at $3.99. The same platforms also offer the opportunity to buy it, but it will come at a steeper price.

For those who are looking for a more traditional viewing method, it will also air on AMC Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. and 11:15 p.m. EST and Wednesday night at 8:00 p.m. EST.

In 2018, Ferrell revealed to James Corden that at first he wasn't so sure with the premise of "Elf." In fact, the star revealed he worried during shooting that it could end his acting career, which can be seen in the interview below.

"Yeah, there were moments," the actor said when asked about it by the host. "This is either going to be a home run or people are going to go, 'Whatever happened to you? Why did you do that one about the elf?'" he said, adding, "But, it was just obviously one of those where the stars aligned."
