Get Ready Christmas Fans Beloved Comedy Is Back With The Original Cast

Almost 40 years after the release of the original, HBO Max released the official trailer for “A Christmas Story Christmas,” featuring the original star Peter Billingsley as Ralphie Parker.

Ralphie is mourning the loss of his father and reunites with his old friends in the nostalgic, full-length trailer for HBO Max’s A Christmas Story Christmas.

According to TV Line the movie is,

Set for release on Thursday, Nov. 17, the streaming sequel sees Peter Billingsley, now 51, reprise his role as Ralphie Parker. In the movie, Ralphie “returns to the house on Cleveland Street to deliver his kids a magical Christmas like the one he had growing up,” according to the official logline. “With the same attention-to-real-life tone of the first, Ralphie reconnects with childhood friends, reconciles the passing of his Old Man and sows the seeds for the origins of the beloved holiday classic.”

Billingsley stated, “There was a lot of conversation about doing a sequel much closer to when the original film came out in 1983, and then, of course, in the early ’90s… Eventually, it seemed like a distant memory, like we’d never be able to do it. But here we are, Ralphie is all grown up, he has his own family, and it’s an opportunity to really take what was so great from the first one and bring so much of that magic back but with a whole new perspective. You see what his dreams are, where his life is now, who his family is. In some ways, waiting this long makes it all the more special because there were so many new characters that we could bring in, and so many of the old fan favorites that we got to explore as well. Always in the back of my mind, I’d hoped that this day would come.”

The original Christmas Story had moderate success upon its initial release. However, over time, the film featuring a young boy who so desperately wanted an official Red Ryder carbine action, 200-shot range model air rifle for Christmas — became a cult classic.
