A Walton Thanksgiving Reunion marks the first time the original cast members have been together since Richard Thomas and Michael Learned left the TV series. Set 20 years after the series finale, the year is 1963 and the family is getting together to celebrate Thanksgiving and are all reflecting on how the assassination of President Kennedy has affected them.
There are some modern touches that really weren't in the original series so many felt this special wasn't true to the Waltons series. Still, an enjoyable movie, with the return of John Boy and Olivia. There are also many cameos from favorite characters of the show, which make this a great show to watch and recall the series with family.
Starring: Richard Waite, Michael Learned, Richard Thomas, Ellen Korby, and Judy Norton-Taylor.
First aired in 1993, and available in a wonderful collection of DVDs of all the movie specials made after the series was cancelled.
