Share on Facebook

Few movies are as beloved by Americans as A Christmas Story.

It’s been almost 35 years since the original came out, but some big news about the film has just surfaced.

Check out the details below!

First up: A Christmas Story is coming BACK!

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s get a little more specific.

It will air on Fox just in time for the holidays on December 17th, 2017.

But if you’re going to have a musical component, you might as well get the guys they did. They got the La La Land songwriters!

Ralphie’s mom will be played by SNL alum Maya Rudolph. She’s got quite a voice on her, so expect her to partake in the singing!

The film will air LIVE, meaning that every slip-up or forgotten line will be memorialized forever.

But the question is: Will it be different enough to warrant a reboot while still keeping the heart of the original?

The “live musical” thing has been popular for a while, and people either love it or they don’t. But one week before Christmas, there’s a good chance that families will be in the spirit!

They’d better hurry. It’s a critical element to the story, and that kid’s gonna have to learn a lot of lines and songs.

You can follow them easily enough through entertainment outlets, or you can wait to be surprised at showtime.

Which side do YOU stand on?
