“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 two sons, one that grew up in Lakeside, Illinois (Charlie) and one that grew up at the Pole (Buddy).”
“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 project was initially titled ‘The Clauses’ and created as a streaming project for Disney+. It began filming in March 2022.
Scott Calvin has a big announcement to make. He’s finally going to step down as Santa Claus, causing a big panic among the elves and children.
However, the interview process for the role isn’t exactly smooth. Who will be the new Santa Claus?
