The new trailer also reveals a bit more about the movie plot, which is described as a “new holiday chapter,” according to After Thomas welcomes viewers into the world of the Walton family, we are greeted by the new John-Boy (played by Logan Shroyer) and the new Olivia (Bellamy Young). Olivia tells her son that their father will be coming home to join them for Christmas. However, the bus that John-Boy’s father is taking home wrecks, and it puts their family reunion at risk for not happening at all. That’s when John-Boy decides to come to his father’s rescue.
