The Santa Clauses- Being Santa Can Be Very Stressful

The Santa Clauses Episode 1 and 2 Reviews Non-Spoiler

The most iconic Christmas franchise of all time has to be The Santa Clause starring Tim Allen. The film saw a single overworked dad stumble his way into being Santa Claus and learning how to bring the Christmas spirit back to those who had forgotten. The original 1994 film spawned two sequels, both successful in their own rights. After over twenty years after the third film, the franchise is heading to Disney+ for a new series called The Santa Clauses.

In the first episode, we catch up with Santa Claus on Christmas night. But this Christmas is a little different than the ones before. After almost three decades of being Santa, Scott Calvin notices his magic isn’t as bright and merry as it used to be. After this Christmas, Santa must decide between his family or continuing to bring joy to young children around the world. As the spirit of Christmas declines in popularity over the years, so does his Santa magic. In the first couple of episodes of the show, Scott struggles to keep up with the demands of the job, as well as being there for his new family that he created at the North Pole.

It is in the second chapter of the series that Santa discovers there is a way to retire from his post. Now with a clean way out, Scott considers stepping down as Santa Claus and finding a worthy successor so that he can become a better father and husband. Finding that successor will become the challenging part as Scott comes to find out.

The series does a great job of capturing the magic that the first film does and Tim Allen is still a great Santa Clause. The series returns Elizabeth Mitchell as Mrs. Clause and Austin Kane as Buddy, Scott’s son, but also introduces a new cast including Kal Penn as Simon Choksi.

So far, The Santa Clauses is fantastic! It is the perfect series to watch with a family of all ages over the holiday season. It is great to watch this series with my daughters as this franchise is one of my favorite childhood holiday movies.

The first two episodes of the six-episode series will premiere Wednesday, November 16, exclusively on Disney+
