Christmas is never complete without watching back-to-back movies of The Santa Clause franchise.
28-years-ago, Tim Allen was the white-bearded saint in the 1994 Christmas comedy film The Santa Clause. He spread his magic again in the sequels, The Santa Clause 2 (2002) and The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause (2006).
The clauses are back this Christmas in Disney Plus’s The Santa Clauses, a six-episode limited series that premieres on November 16 2022.
What’s the Plot for ‘The Santa Clauses’?
Getting old and tired, 65-year-old Scott Calvin wishes to retire and spend more time with his family. He journeys south of the North Pole to find a suitable successor.
