During session D23, host Raven-Symoné asked Allen why he chose “The Santa Clauses” and he mentioned that his interest in the deep lore of the Marvel movies has passed inspired him to want to find answers to lingering questions from the franchise, especially from the original 1994 film. “The question I’ve always wanted, is why don’t the dwarves worry worried about me appearing in ‘The Santa Clause’, first thought?” Allen asked. “And what happened to the guy who slipped off the roof?”
Look, Allen has a point here. There have been countless fan theories and conspiracies on Reddit trying to figure out what happened to the original Santa, so if Disney has some ideas, I’ll listen.
Allen also said the show will answer questions like why Mrs. Claus doesn’t have a name, the history of Santa Claus, whether there have ever been other human children in the North Pole, where Santa Claus came from, and most importantly, how Bernard the Elf (David Krumholtz) fits into the world. “It’s going to make the original ‘The Santa Clause’ more important,” Allen said.
Allen stars Elizabeth Mitchell, Elizabeth Allen-Dick, Devin Bright, Austin Kane, Matilda Lawler, Rupali Redd, and Kal Penn. No word yet on whether we’ll see Judge Reinhold or Wendy Crewson, but my letter to Santa asking for Neil’s return was in the mail.
“The Santa Clauses” premieres on Disney+ with two episodes premiering on November 16, 2022, with new episodes being released weekly during the holiday season.
