‘A Christmas Story’ Sequel Is Coming Featuring A Grown-Up Ralphie


HBO Max is currently working on a sequel to the popular Christmas movie, A Christmas Story. Peter Billingsley, who played Ralphie in the original film, is already set to reprise his role in the sequel. He will play a grown-up Ralphie as well as serve as a producer on the series.

The original film came out in 1983 and was set in the 1940s. So, the sequel will be set in the 1970s and feature “an adult Ralphie return to his house on Cleveland Street to deliver his kids a magical Christmas like the one he had growing up.” The film is reportedly named A Christmas Story Christmas.

Peter was a child star, best known for his role as Ralphie. He hasn’t done that much acting since then and mainly focused on being a director and producer. So far, HBO Max has not confirmed the rest of the cast. However, many of the original cast members are still working, except Darren McGavin, who played Ralphie’s father, passed away in 2006. Perhaps many of the original cast members will come back for the sequel!
