“Scott Calvin is on the brink of his 65th birthday and realizing that he can’t be Santa forever”
Tim Allen to Reprise SANTA CLAUSE Role With LAST MAN STANDING Creator
Well, if the suit fits …
Tim Allen will be reprising his SANTA CLAUSE role in a new limited series for Disney+ with LAST MAN STANDING Creator Jack Burditt.
In addition to returning as Scott Calvin, his role from the previous movies, Allen will also be executive producing the project.
“Scott Calvin is on the brink of his 65th birthday and realizing that he can’t be Santa forever,” according to a release. “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.”
Allen’s performance in the first movie earned him a People’s Choice Award, and spawned two sequels, all of which were lauded by Movieguide® for their family-oriented message, production value, and great comedy.
