A Christmas Story 2 is a direct-to-video film produced by Warner Bros. Pictures, released on October 30, 2012. As the title suggests, it is the sequel to the 1983 MGM film A Christmas Story, and is also the only film based on Jean Shepherd's stories to not include any input from him (as he had died in October 1999).
Five years after the events in the original film, Ralphie, Flick, and Schwartz are now teenagers who are almost old enough to drive, which means only one thing to the almost all-American teenager: Ralphie has his heart set on a beauty of a car (not to mention trying to get a girlfriend as well). Unfortunately, he wrecks it before it even leaves the lot, so he and his friends must find jobs to pay off the damage.
Meanwhile, the Old Man continues fighting his suburban war while Randy plays soldier and Mrs. Parker stands patiently by to clean up the battlefield.
- This film is actually the fifth follow-up to the original one, the first three being the made-for-TV movies The Star-Crossed Romance of Josephine Cosnowski and Ollie Hopnoodle's Haven of Bliss, and the feature film It Runs in the Family (released on video as My Summer Story). However, they have little connection other than both providing the further adventures of the Parker family (though unlike this one, those films were actually made with input from Jean Shepherd; Shepherd even provided the narration for It Runs in the Family).
