For a new Disney+ series based in the world of The Santa Clause, the creator of Last Man Standing is reconnecting with series actor Tim Allen. Since its inception in 1994, the movie franchise, which starred Allen as a selfish man who learns to be more caring after unintentionally killing Father Christmas and having to take over the job, has grossed about $500 million worldwide.
In 2006, the series’ last chapter, which starred Martin Short as a malevolent take on Jack Frost, was introduced. Allen will serve as an executive producer, with Scott Burditt, the creator of Last Man Standing, serving as a showrunner.
The Santa Clause – Will Bernard be there???
Scott Calvin is ready to call it a day. He’s now on the lookout for a replacement. The Disney summary is as follows:
Scott Calvin, the protagonist of the Disney+ series, is approaching his 65th birthday and realizes that he won’t be Santa for much longer. He’s starting to fall behind in his Santa responsibilities, and, more significantly, he has a family who may benefit from an ordinary life, particularly his two children who have grown up at the North Pole. Scott sets out to find a good replacement Santa while gearing up his family for a new journey in a life south of the pole, with a lot of elves, children, and relatives to please.
In the 1994 film The Santa Clause, Allen won a People’s Choice Award for his depiction as Scott Calvin, Santa Claus’s conduit, replete with ballooning waistline, rosy cheeks, and snow-white beard. In 2002’s film which was the scond installment (in which Santa is encouraged to find a Mrs. Claus) and 2006’s The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause, he reprised his role.
