Ten days till Christmas but it feels like we got our present early this year.
Elf co-stars Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel have reunited 17 years after they appeared alongside each other in the beloved Christmas film.
Although the pair came together for a serious cause as they help raise funds for the Democratic Party of Georgia, they still managed to spread some cheer as they sang a rendition of 'Baby, It's Cold Outside', just like they did in the movie.
In the livestream posted to Instagram over the weekend, the pair also did a live script reading of the 2003 Christmas flick, in which Ferrell starred as beloved Buddy the Elf and Deschanel as his sidekick, Jovie.
The co-stars also invited some famous faces to join them, including John Lithgow, Wanda Sykes and Busy Phillips.
"Thank you to everyone who joined the #ElfforGeorgia livestream!" the actress captioned the video on Instagram. "So excited we were able to reach our goal of over $400k! Loved reuniting with the cast and all our very special guests."

Ferrell and Deschanel's duet of 'Baby, It's Cold Outside' was not originally written into the script — it was only added by director Jon Favreau after they cast Deschanel in the role and learnt she had serious cabaret skills.
"I remember Jon Favreau telling me that they were catering it to whoever played the part," she previously told Entertainment Weekly. "One actress they were looking at was good at skateboarding. But I had a cabaret act at the time and I was performing a lot. They knew that I was a singer, so they put that in to be my special thing that he could discover I was good at."
