Tim Allen’s Christmas classic The Santa Clause was released in 1994. The movie quickly became a holiday family favorite. The movie was an unexpected hit and grossed $189 million. Allen is rebooting the series for more of those sweet Santa bucks, and he’s got a deal with a streaming giant in place to get them.
Allen will star in and produce a limited series based on the film and its two sequels. Disney+ will be the landing spot. Production on the show is scheduled to start in March, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Allen’s character will be approaching his 65th birthday in the new series. Scott realizes he can’t be Santa forever. The search for a suitable replacement Santa is the basis of the narrative.
Combined, The Santa Clause and its sequels have raked in $474 million. The most recent sequel was released in 2006. After sixteen years, fans of the festive flicks will have something new to look forward to.
Las Man Standing creator Jack Burditt and executive producer Kevin Hench are also attached to the project. Burditt will serve as the showrunner. Allen will reprise his role and executive produce.
There has been plenty of new material for fans of the nostalgia market. Sex and the City recently got another season. Tim Allen is hoping he can cash in on that with his new Santa Clause series for Disney+.
