To promote The Santa Clauses on Disney+ and to talk about his time working on it, Tim Allen appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on November 21, 2022. He also opened up about his reason for returning to the long-dormant Christmas franchise — and it wasn’t just about commenting on the over-the-top “Happy Holidays” versus “Merry Christmas” debate. Allen wanted to fill in the unsolved plot gaps in The Santa Clause, saying, “I never understood, not even in the movie, why when I showed up at the North Pole the elves didn’t say, ‘Hey, what happened to the other guy?'”
Additionally, Allen and the minds behind “The Santa Clauses” wanted to give Mrs. Claus – played by Elizabeth Mitchell – some time in the spotlight. “Why [doesn’t] Mrs Claus has a name? What is your first name? So we came up with this script, The Clauses. I have a family now. You fill in the blanks in all of this,” Allen continued. With that, The Santa Clauses seems like an excellent way to not only spread a bit of Christmas cheer, but also tie up any loose ends that the previous three Santa Clause films may have left behind: The Santa Clauses will be over a total of six episodes are running.
Santas is currently streaming exclusively on Disney+, with new episodes releasing every Wednesday.
