The Waltons: Homecoming


AVAILABLE DECEMBER 14!




Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the television movie that launched the long-running series, THE WALTONS’ HOMECOMING is set in the 1933 Depression Era and told through the eyes of John Boy, the 17-year-old eldest child of John and Olivia Walton. His mother expects John Boy to help her raise his sisters and brothers, and his father expects him to follow in his footsteps to help support the family, but secretly, John Boy wants to be a writer. Times are hard enough in 1933, but to make matters worse, it looked to be the Waltons’ first Christmas without John Sr. When Olivia receives a letter that John Sr. is planning to make it home for Christmas after all, the family is thrilled and races to prepare for his homecoming. But when a storm threatens his arrival on Christmas Eve, and John Sr. is nowhere to be found, Olivia sends John Boy out into the night to find his daddy – a journey that will change John Boy’s life forever.





REVIEW:
This is another classic that I often watched as a child. To be taken back into the lives of the Waltons, transports me to another time and place. Sitting in the living room with my mom to watch tv.
I liked this modern adaption of the show we know and love. It is in the time of when John Boy was a teenager. 
I was going to write down something, then decided not to because it was one of those moments you don't want to spoil for anyone.
I will say though, the cinematography at times took my breath away. Wow, this one moment, on Walton mountain, with the sun shining through the snow-capped trees literally astonished me and left me in awe. There were so many beautiful scenes though.
The story itself, has a Christmas touch to it. Perfect for the season to watch with your family. It's a lovely and heartwarming story. Just as one might expect.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
