Is anything truly sacred anymore? After viewing this trailer for the upcoming 'official sequel' to 1983's A Christmas Story, we can safely say probably not. It's a rather easy feat to mess up a timeless classic with a straight-to-DVD follow-up, but this film really goes above and beyond with the plot - it's set seven years after the original, and follows now 16-year-old Ralphie (portrayed by Braeden Lemasters) who is now covering a convertible for his birthday instead of the Red Ryder BB Gun he wanted in the first film. Kids today.

Also starring is Home Alone crook #2, Daniel Stern. Damn, guys, shoot us right in the childhood why don't you?

You can check out the trailer above.
