The story will follow George Bailey’s (Jimmy Stewart) grandson who will be visited by an angel. This sounds not so much like a sequel as a repeat of the same story that has captivated millions since its release decades ago.

According to Variety, the sequel is hoping to hire original cast members such as Jimmy Hawkins and Carol Coombs (who played Tommy and Janie Bailey) to come back to the roles that made them famous.

It's a Wonderful Life Quotes

George Bailey: What is it you want, Mary? What do you want? You want the moon? Just say the word and I'll throw a lasso around it and pull it down. Hey. That's a pretty good idea. I'll give you the moon, Mary.
Mary: I'll take it. Then what?
George Bailey: Well, then you can swallow it, and it'll all dissolve, see... and the moonbeams would shoot out of your fingers and your toes and the ends of your hair... am I talking too much?

I wanna live again!

George Bailey
