Plot, cast and everything else we know

Get ready 90’s kids. Scott Calvin will soon be back on our screens as Santa Claus. A limited sequel to the legendary Tim Allen Santa Claus The trilogy is officially in development on Disney+.

Released in 1994, the original Santa Claus The film was positively received by critics and viewers alike and has become a staple of the holiday film season. two sequels, Santa Claus 2 and Santa Claus 3: The Escape Clause, were later released in 2002 and 2006. While the sequels haven’t been as well received, the trilogy as a whole has garnered a cult following in the years since release.


Now, after 16 years, Allen is returning to his Santa role in The New Santa Claus Series. With that in mind, let’s take a look at everything we know. Besides Allen, can we expect any returning faces from the franchise? Also, what new players are joining the cast? How will the story established in the film trilogy be continued? When and where can viewers watch the new series?

Santa Claus: The Storyline

Described as a sequel Santa Claus 3, the series will reportedly follow Allen’s Scott Calvin as he seeks who will be the next Santa. While we don’t have many details just yet, Disney has released a summary of what fans can expect from the series.

“In the Disney+ series, Scott Calvin approaches his 65th birthday and realizes he can’t be Santa forever. He’s gradually losing a step in his duties as Santa Claus, and more importantly, he has a family that could benefit from life in the normal world, particularly his two children who were raised at the Pole. With many elves, children and family members, Scott sets out in search of a suitable replacement Santa as he prepares his family for a new adventure in life south of the Pole.”

The first film revolved around Calvin assuming Santa’s mantle after accidentally causing the previous Santa’s death. In the sequels, Scott fulfilled the “Mrs. Clause” by marrying and later being tricked by Jack Frost into reversing his life as Santa Clause according to the “Escape Clause”. Now it looks like the miniseries will be the natural conclusion to Scott’s tenure as Santa.

This could potentially leave the door open for Disney to continue the franchise with a new lead as Santa if the miniseries is successful, even if replacing the leads of beloved long-running franchises rarely works. In any case, viewers will likely have to wait until we get closer to the release date for more specific information.

Santa Claus: The Cast

As previously mentioned, Tim Allen is back in the title role as Scott Calvin / Santa Claus, reprising his role from all three films. Elizabeth Mitchell is also back as Carol Newman/Mrs. Claus, having previously appeared in the second and third films. So far, Allen and Mitchell are the only confirmed cast members returning from the film series. This is subject to change as it is still at the beginning of the development process.

In addition to Allen and Mitchell, several new players will join the cast. Kal Penn will join as Simon Choksi. Penn’s character is described as a product developer who aspires to be the next Jeff Bezos, but that all changes when he visits the North Pole. Interestingly, Simon Choksi has the same “SC” initials as Scott Calvin and Santa, possibly indicating he could become Calvin’s successor as Santa, although nothing is confirmed.

Matilda Lawler joins as Santa’s chief of staff, Betty, a demanding elf who’s mostly focused on her job. Austin Kane plays Cal Calvin, Scott and Carol’s eldest son, who lacks ambition and knows that what he wants in life is not at the North Pole. Rupali Redd plays Grace Choksi, daughter of Penns Simon, who has an unwavering belief in Santa and loves all things Christmas. Devin Bright portrays Noel, Santa’s right hand elf, who perceives himself as Santa’s best friend.

Appropriately, Allen’s real-life daughter, Elizabeth Allen-Dick, plays Sandra Calvin, Scott and Carol’s youngest daughter. Sandra is lonely due to the lack of other people at the North Pole, giving her a special bond with animals and a strong sense of right and wrong. Interestingly, this is Allen-Dick’s first-ever appearance as an actor.

These are all cast members who are confirmed as of now, although more additions could be announced in the coming months as we get closer to the release date.
