Peter Billingsley Reveals Why He Agreed To Return For A Christmas Story Christmas

2022 has been a good year for holiday legacy quels, particularly in the streaming world. Disney+ subscribers have The Santa Clauses to look forward to, which will be unfolding over the next couple of weeks, and that’s on top of all of the new movie releases that have already hit in the past couple of weeks.

One of the most promising is the HBO Max (opens in new tab) original A Christmas Story Christmas, which sees actor Peter Billingsley returning to the role of Ralph “Ralphie” Parker almost 40 years after the original holiday classic. As it turns out, his return to the series that helped kickstart his acting career was built around some very mature thinking.
