Right now, Disney is celebrating the holiday season BIG!
Yeah, we know that sounds confusing, considering it’s the middle of the summer, but bear with us — it’s Halfway to the Holidays! In honor of the occasion, we’ve already received some big announcements about holiday celebrations in Disney World and Disneyland Resort. But now, Disney is revealing big details about an upcoming series!
Disney announced a while back that a new series inspired by The Santa Clause movies would be coming to their streaming service, but now we’ve got more information. The new Disney+ original series will be called The Santa Clauses!
Along with the title reveal, Disney shared a look at the cast, which includes Tim Allen and Elizabeth Mitchell reprising their original roles as Santa and Mrs. Claus. Austin Kane and Elizabeth Allen Dick are joining the show to play their children, Cal and Sandra.
Other characters include Simon Choski, “a single father, ambitious game inventor, and product developer” who will be played by Kal Penn. Rupali Redd will play his daughter Grace, who has a love for all things Christmas.
And of course, we need some elves! Disney notes that “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.”
The show will take place several years after the events of the third movie, with Santa Claus/Scott Calvin approaching his 65th birthday. As he starts to lose some of his Santa magic, he realizes that it’s time to find his replacement.
No release date has yet been revealed for the show, but we’re excited to see it when it lands on Disney+. Until then, we’ve got quite a bit to watch that’s available currently. The finale of Obi-Wan Kenobi premiered this week and Ms. Marvel is the latest Marvel series available to stream. There’s so much to watch!
