THE “A CHRISTMAS STORY” FOR THE NEXT GENERATION
HBO Max will premiere “8-Bit Christmas” on Wednesday, November 24th. The family holiday movie stars Neil Patrick Harris as Jack Doyle, a father reminiscing about “the one gift” he wanted more than anything for Christmas to his daughter. In flashbacks, we go to Chicago in the late 80s where young Jack goes on a quest to get a Nintendo game system while trying to overcome objections from his parents and other adults. Created by the studio that gave us “Elf”, “8-Bit Christmas” seems very familiar. Does this seem like an updated version of the classic “A Christmas Story”? Check out the trailer and see if you don’t get a sense of deja vu.
