First look at the Disney+ limited series “The Santa Clauses”, which is intended to be the final chapter in the “Santa Clause” franchise.
I love the original film, so I’ll be watching. The series stars Tim Allen, Elizabeth Mitchell, Kal Penn, Elizabeth Allen-Dick, Matilda Lawler (“Station Eleven”), Austin Kane, Rupali Redd, and Devin Bright. The series comes from 5 time Emmy winner Jack Burditt, the creator of Allen’s hit sitcom “Last Man Standing”, who will serve as a producer and showrunner on the series.
The series will follow Scott Calvin (Allen), who is on the brink of his 65th birthday and realizing that he can’t be Santa forever. He’s starting to lose a step in his Santa duties and, more important, he’s got a family who could benefit from a life in the normal world, especially his two kids who have grown up at the Pole. With a lot of elves, children and family to please, Scott sets out to find a suitable replacement Santa while preparing his family for a new adventure in a life south of the Pole.
