We know that Disney+ is obsessed with reviving classic IPs to attract new viewers to its streaming platform, but this is quite an interesting surprise. It looks like the Christmas classic Santa Clause starring Tim Allen is making a return. It’ll be the third time the actor takes on the role of Scott Calvin after his last appearance in the 2006 threequel. He originally took on the role back in 1994, where the unknowing Scott ended up leading to the death of Santa Clause and would take on the role. It seems the series will explore his time to pass on the role, as revealed in the following series description:
Scott Calvin is on the brink of his 65th birthday and realizing that he can’t be Santa forever. He’s starting to lose a step in his Santa duties, and more importantly, he’s got a family who could benefit from a life in the normal world, especially his two kids who have grown up at the Pole. With a lot of elves, children, and family to please, Scott sets out to find a suitable replacement Santa while preparing his family for a new adventure in a life south of the pole.
The mastermind behind Allen‘s last comedy series Last Man Standing, Jack Burditt, is on as showrunner and executive producer. Kevin Hench, Richard Baker, and Rick Messina will also join in the executive producer role alongside its star. With Hocus Pocus 2 on the horizon, it really seems like the House of Mouse is quite excited to revive cult classics for a new generation of viewers.
