There could be interviews with the writers, producers and set designers on making the film. There are plenty of special features out there that exist without the director and star. Seems pretty silly this movie remains one of the few and only Christmas classics that has nothing special to add to the bare bones dvd and blu-ray release.
Supplemental features were already completed, from what I understand, and are in a vault held up by clearance issues. Paramount would have to create new materials but even then these could be locked up in legal hell.

Bill Murray very rarely participates in supplemental features anyway so I doubt any recent interviews were conducted with him. I remember his participation in the Stripes retrospective being a huge enough deal that the DVD advertised it on the front sticker.
