Let the countdown to Christmas begin!
D23 announced that Tim Allen will produce and reprise his role as Scott Calvin/Santa in a new Santa Clause series coming to Disney+ later this year.
According to the Disney fan club, the series finds Calvin is on the brink of his 65th birthday and realizes that he can’t be Santa forever. He’s starting to lose a step in his Santa duties so he sets out to find a suitable replacement Santa while preparing his family for a new adventure in a life south of the pole.
The new series will reunite Allen with Last Man Standing creator Jack Burditt and exec producer Kevin Hench. Production on the new project is scheduled to begin in March.
The Santa Clause was released in 1994, with two sequels that followed in 2002 and 2006. All three movies made a combined $474 million at the box office worldwide.
