After announcing it at the start of the year, Disney+ finally made good with some details for the upcoming show officially titled THE SANTA CLAUSES! Tim Allen and Elizabeth Mitchell will return one again as Santa and Mrs. Claus along with a new cast that includes Kal Penn and more.
THE SANTA CLAUSES is set some time after the events of “The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause” and picks up with Scott Calvin on the brink of his 65th birthday. Realizing he can’t be Santa forever as he suddenly starts to lose his Santa magic, he sets out to find a suitable replacement Santa while preparing his family for a new adventure in a life south of the North Pole.
Tim Allen and Elizabeth Mitchell will reprise their roles as Santa Claus (Scott Calvin) and Mrs. Claus (Carol) with new cast joining the Disney+ Original Series. Austin Kane and Elizabeth Allen Dick join the cast playing the roles of Cal and Grace, the two children of Santa and Mrs. Claus. In addition to the Calvin family, Kal Penn joins the cast of “The Santa Clauses” playing Simon Choski, a single father, ambitious game inventor and product developer whose visit to the North Pole makes a big impact on the direction of his life. They’re all joined by Rupali Redd playing the role of Grace, his angelic daughter with a love for Santa and all things Christmas; Devin Bright as Noel, Santa’s trusted right-hand elf, and Matilda Lawler as Betty, Santa’s demanding Chief of Staff and job-oriented Elf.
