Earlier this year it was announced a series based on “The Santa Clause” movies was coming to Disney+ and this week we got a look at the full cast of the show, titled “The Santa Clauses.”
As part of its “Halfway to the Holidays” promotion, Disney posted this photo of the cast of the series:
Tim Allen and Elizabeth Mitchell will reprise their roles as Santa Claus (Scott Calvin) and Mrs. Claus (Carol).
Their children (on the left side of the photo) will be played by Austin Kane and Elizabeth Allen Dick (who is Tim Allen’s real-life daughter).
Kal Penn joins the cast 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.
He’s joined by Rupali Redd playing the role of Grace, his angelic daughter with a love for Santa and all things Christmas.
And we can’t forget about Santa’s elves.
Devin Bright joins the cast as Noel, Santa’s trusted right-hand elf, along with Matilda Lawler as Betty, Santa’s demanding Chief of Staff and job-oriented Elf.
Disney says “The Santa Clauses” is set some time after the events of “The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause,” which was the third movie in the franchise.
The series picks up with Scott Calvin (Allen) 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.
While Penn’s character has not officially been identified as Calvin’s successor, the initials of his character’s name are “S.C.”, the same as Scott Calvin and Santa Claus.
Also a question mark is the return of fan-favorite elf Bernard. As of now, David Krumholtz is not signed on for this series. He also didn’t appear in the third movie, but fans have hoped he’d return for the series.
No official release date has been announced yet, but the series is already in production.
