National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation – 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray

As the holidays approach, Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) wants to have a perfect family Christmas, so he pesters his wife, Ellen (Beverly D’Angelo), and children, as he tries to make sure everything is in line, including the tree and house decorations. However, things go awry quickly. His hick cousin, Eddie (Randy Quaid), and his family show up unplanned and start living in their camper on the Griswold property. Even worse, Clark’s employers renege on the holiday bonus he needs.

Set in a 1940s-era Midwestern town and told from the viewpoints of a seven-year-old boy, who only wants one thing for Christmas — a Red Ryder BB gun — the episodic tale chronicles not only his schemes to convince his mother and father to buy him one, but also offers a warmly nostalgic look into 1940s middle-class American life. From the stories of, and narrated by, Jean Shepherd.

This hilarious Christmas film tells the tale of a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts on Christmas Eve and is transported back to the North Pole and raised as an elf. Years later Buddy learns he is not really an elf and goes on a journey to New York City to find his true identity.


It also appears that The Original Christmas Classics Collection – 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray is listed for 4K UHD Blu-ray in November, but it’s unclear what is included or if there will be separate releases. We’ll keep you posted when more news for any of these releases is available!

When we get full press releases for these titles we’ll update our listings and post to social media. For now they’re technically a rumor, but with so many retailers already starting to punch in listings we’re fairly certain they’re coming, but we don’t know if there will be retailer-exclusive artwork, what bonus features, or tech spec. Even the rumored release dates for November 1st aren’t confirmed. As we saw so much title release movement last year, expect some of these dates to change throughout the Holiday season.

Happy 4K Ultra HD to all and to all a happy physical media upgrade… hopefully.
