Merry Christmas: You're Getting an 'It's a Wonderful Life' Sequel
The joyful, unambiguous ending of the 1946 classic It's a Wonderful Life is getting another chapter added on, because maybe life isn't all that great after all, eh, George?
Variety claims Star Partners and Hummingbird Productions are teaming up for It's a Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story, a follow-up said to be a real movie that will actually be in theaters and everything for Christmas 2015. Karolyn Grimes, who played George Bailey's petal-loving daughter Zuzu in the original, is already attached to return to the role, even though the character is technically being killed off; she'll now be an angel who, instead of telling someone what a wonderful life they've got, shows Bailey's grandson how much better off the world would be were he to not exist. Sort of like how an It's a Wonderful Life sequel will show us how the world will be now that satire does not exist.
