The photograph’s the proof, movie fans. A new set of Griswolds are gearing up for a cross-country family vacation to Walley World and this time nothing is going to get in their way. Yeah right!
Warner Bros. announced that the much talked about Vacation reboot starring Ed Helms and Christina Applegate is set for a July 31st release, and thanks to some newly released photos from the film, it looks like it will feature a lot of familiar places and faces.
The film, which is both a sequel and reboot of the 1983 Chevy Chase comedy classic Vacation, will feature a grown up Rusty Griswold (Helms) trying to follow in his fathers footsteps by taking his wife (Applegate) and two sons on a bonding trip to America’s greatest theme park, Walley World. But this time he wants to do it properly.
As seen in the new photos, in addition to Helms and Applegate, the film will feature Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo reprising their roles as Clark and Ellen Griswold, a trip back to Walley World and most importantly, the iconic green Griswold station wagon. Good luck starting that jalopy up.
Are you excited for the Vacation reboot?
