As Ralphie reconciles with the passing of his father, he’ll reconnect with his childhood friends whose appearances are also teased in a throwback photo.
Among those friends are returning costars, Scott Schwartz as Flick and R.D. Robb as Schwartz, both of who have yet to make an appearance. Directed by Clay Katis and written by Nick Schenk, the sequel will also see the return of Ian Petrella as Randy and Zack Ward as Scut Farkus, with Julie Hagerty set to portray Ralphie’s mom, taking over for original film star Melinda Dillon. Meanwhile, Erinn Hayes will play Ralphie’s wife, and River Drosche and Julianna Layne have been cast as their son and daughter, respectively.
