Now is the time to put up the tree and hang the stockings by the chimney with care. With his triumphant return, fan favorites like Ralphie Parker are already planning their holiday gift lists.
This year, the exclusive HBO Max film, a Christmas Story, will make its debut on the streaming service through its sequel, ‘A Christmas Story Christmas’.
Many people look forward to watching Christmas every year since it is one of the best Christmas movies ever made.
Approximately 40 years after making his name as the timid, eccentric boy, Peter Billingsley comes back in the role of Ralphie, this time as a desperate father trying to make the holidays enjoyable for his family
Where can I find ‘A Christmas Story Christmas’ to watch?
It is traditional for several networks to air A Christmas Story during their holiday specials. That the movie will be shown again on Turner Broadcasting System this year is a given.
In the month of December, there will be a marathon showing of A Christmas Story that lasts for an entire day!
(Just so nobody forgets!)
Starting on Saturday, December 24 at 8:00 p.m. EST, and continuing through Sunday, December 25 at the same time, there will be a 24-hour showing of A Christmas Story.
Can I watch ‘A Christmas Story Christmas’ on Disney+, Netflix, or Hulu?
Presently, HBO Max is the only place you can watch A Christmas Story online.
For $10 per month, subscribers can use the streaming platform, albeit advertisements will still be included.
For $15 a month, you can stream without interruptions. I was wondering where I could find a copy of the sequel to “A Christmas Story.
Since its debut on HBO Max on November 17, you may now start watching A Christmas Story Christmas.
The film is exclusive to HBO Max and will not be made available on any other streaming services.
(I’m sorry to disappoint Netflix and Hulu subscribers!)
Is it worth watching the film?
To be honest, we haven’t seen it yet, but it seems promising if you enjoyed the first one.
Peter Billingsley, who played the young Ralphie in the first film 40 years ago, is set to reprise the role.
Ralphie’s brother Randy (Ian Petrella), friends (R.D. Robb and Scottie Schwartz), and the villainous (Zack Ward) classmate from the original film all make cameo appearances.
Narrator Vince Vaughn takes over for Jean Shepherd, who wrote the novel In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash, from which the film A Christmas Story was adapted.
What’s ‘A Christmas Story’ About?
In the days before Christmas, Ralphie’s father, affectionately known as The Old Man, dies.
Ralphie and his family move back to Hammond, Indiana, after spending some time in Chicago, where Ralphie had settled down as a writer and where he and his wife Sandy had raised their children Mark and Julie.
Ralphie’s mother urges him to help make Christmas great in honor of his father’s memory as he shows his family around the town where he grew up, proving once again that the quaintness of small towns is timeless.
Then, Ralphie sets out to make this Christmas the finest one by engaging in several triple dogs dares, going ice skating with his old pals Schwartz and Flick, and reuniting with his old enemy Farkus.
Petrella, Schwartz, Robb, and Ward are all set to return for the sequel, while Julie Hagerty (Airplane!) will take over for Dillon as Mrs. Parker as Dillon has retired from acting.
Ralphie’s new family includes his wife, Sandy Parker (Erinn Hayes), their son Mark (River Drosche), and daughter Julie (Julianne Layne).
