For the first time since 2006 audiences will finally return to the North Pole with Scott Calvin aka Santa Claus (Played by Tim Allen) and Carol Calvin aka Mrs. Claus (Played by: Elizabeth Mitchell) in the upcoming mini-series The Santa Clauses. The series will also feature Kal Penn as Simon Choski, Matilda Lawler as “Betty”, Austin Kane as Buddy “Cal” Calvin-Claus, Elizabeth Allen-Dick as Sandra Calvin-Claus, Rupali Redd as Grace Choksi and Devin Bright as “Noel”.
Disney released a “first look” at the cast all together on set.
An official synopsis for the series reads:
“Scott Calvin 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 importantly, 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.“
For years many have wondered if there would ever be a fourth film in the series, be it the third film not doing as well as the previous installments or even rumors of Disney no longer wanting to work with Tim Allen; But it appears that Disney has chosen to bring back the series, but this time they will be taking the streaming route and it will be out in time for this year’s Christmas Season.
Hopefully this series puts the rumor of Tim Allen being outed by Disney to rest. Unless they pull the rug from under our feel (like they’ve done before) and do something to “subvert expectations”. Hopefully something like that doesn’t happen.
Are you looking forward to seeing Tim Allen’s Santa Claus again?
