I didn’t realize this was on HBOmax. I’ll definitely check it out. I enjoyed the Neil Patrick Harris Christmas movie last year, we’ll watch this one too.

That teaser just makes me miss Darren McGavin though. I didn’t realize he was already in his 60s when the first Christmas Story was made. Even if he were still alive, he’d be 100 years old now!

Re: A Christmas Story Christmas (2022, D: Kaytis) - S: Peter Billingsley

I triple dog dare you to join in on the fun. Ralphie returns in the trailer for #AChristmasStoryChristmas — streaming November 17 exclusively on HBO Max.

From Warner Bros. Pictures and HBO Max comes the family comedy “A Christmas Story Christmas,” the long-awaited follow-up to annual holiday favorite, “A Christmas Story.” This time, Ralphie is all grown up and must deal with Christmas and all that comes with it…as a dad. Peter Billingsley returns to the role that has made kids of all ages anticipate Christmas morning like no other.

Starring alongside Billingsley as Ralphie Parker are Erinn Hayes (“Bill & Ted Face the Music”) as Ralphie’s wife, Sandy; Julianna Layne (“Prodigal Son”) as their daughter, Julie; River Drosche (“Miracle Workers”) as son Mark; Scott Schwartz returning as Flick; RD Robb returning as Schwartz; Ian Petrella reprising his role as Ralphie’s brother, Randy; Davis Murphy (“Looking for Dr. Love”) as Delbert Bumpus; with Zack Ward returning as Scott Farkus; and Julie Hagerty (“Instant Family”) as Ralphie’s mom, Mrs. Parker.

Clay Kaytis (“The Christmas Chronicles”) directed from a screenplay by Nick Schenk (“Cry Macho”) and Kaytis, screen story by Schenk and Billingsley, based upon the book In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash by Jean Shepherd. The film’s producers are Irwin Zwilling, Marc Toberoff, Cale Boyter, Jay Ashenfelter, Billingsley and Vince Vaughn, with Mike Drake, Schenk and Peter Dodd serving as executive producers.

Kaytis’s team behind the camera includes director of photography Matthew Clark (“Pitch Perfect 3,” “Mixtape”), production designer Rusty Smith (“Get Out,” “Life of the Party”), editor David Walsh Heinz (“The Call of the Wild”) and costume designer Shay Cunliffe (“Book Club,” “A Dog’s Purpose”). The music is by composer Jeff Morrow.

Warner Bros. Pictures and HBO MAX Present A Legendary Pictures / Wild West Picture Show / Toberoff Production, A Clay Kaytis Film, “A Christmas Story Christmas.” The film will debut on HBO Max on November 17, 2022.

Eh. Looks like it could be an okay watch while sitting in my chair drinking hot cocoa on a cold day with nothing better to do.

Looking at those guys makes me feel old as dirt though. I am only 2 years younger than Peter Billingsley, saw this in the theater when it came out in '83 and grew up watching it religiously almost every year since then. Shit...I am old.

Yeah, that looks completely inessential.

Sounds like she’s just retired from acting. Though she’s probably not in the best health considering she’s in her 90s now.

She's only 83.

I was hoping she would reprise her role, as well.

For some reason I thought she was older.

For what it’s worth, I was hoping she’d be in this too.

Will give it a watch. The first one is a tradition on Christmas day. Again, again and again.

I'm a child of the 70s/80s and while I like the first movie it's never found a place alongside National Lampoons Xmas in my home. I'll likey watch this but don't have high hopes.

I'm not even sure I've seen 100% of the original film. But of course I'm very aware of it's Pop Culture, Cult Classic, and Holiday Classic status. That said, after seeing the this sequel trailer I must admit it looks like it might be a fun time.

Is this movie needed? No but based on trailer it looks like it's trying to be better than some other unnecessary Christmas sequels like Christmas Vacation 2. I like the 70s setting and they got some actors back from the original movie.

Holy shit this looks awful. If that trailer is the best they have for this movie, it’s going to be hot garbage.

What's the over/under on adult Ralphie appearing in a pink rabbit suit at some point during this movie?

It’ll be something far more subtle…like Ralphie ending up wearing a purple raccoon suit or something.

Hopefully Ralphie is packing some real heat in this one. Maybe he takes out Scut Farkus for good.

Probably should have done this a decade earlier, Billingsley must have aged a ton the last few years, no way Julie Hagerty would be his Mom.
