It’s been 26 years since Clark and Ellen took Audrey and Russ across the country to Wally World, delighting audiences worldwide with their wild antics and hilarious kidnapping caper. The Vacation’s continued to be cinematic benchmarks through the European, Christmas and yes, even the Vegas sequels.
So, it’s safe to say the new 6th installment has got us ’80’s kids super jazzed to see what the new Vacation is going to bring us.
Well, according to USA Today; after 18 years, this movie will see the Griswold’s make a full-circle trip back to where it all started in this excitingly anticipated National Lampoon’s Vacation reboot!
What we know so far:
The major players, Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo are back in their roles as Clark and Ellen. (Although reports are; maybe only in a cameo capacity.)
Ed Helms plays Rusty and Christina Applegate joins the Griswolds clan as Rusty’s wife. They have two sons.
The film follows Rusty and his family on a cross country trip to the family’s favorite stomping grounds, Wally World.
Along the way, Rusty meets up with his sister Audrey played by Leslie Mann, her husband played by Chris Hemsworth.
And I’m sure…hilarity is expected to ensue!
We hope? *Crossing fingers now*
The movie was co-written and directed by John Francis Daley…who you might remember as Sweets from Bones. He chose this project over Bones which was why Lance Sweets had to die…let’s hope it wasn’t in vain.
