Tim Allen is annoyed that no one ever talked about the dead Santa from the first movie.

Plot holes are an unfortunate part of many movies and shows. Sometimes fans are quick to point it out, but it may be the actors who suffer from the to work they are cast in it and also have plot holes. Tim Allen explained how harassed he was at the plot holes Santaas he said, “I never understood, not even in the movie, why the elves, when I showed up at the North Pole, didn’t say, ‘Hey, what happened to that other guy?’ You know, I’ll just jump in the sleigh with the kid and we’ll go.
Tim Allen also adds that Mrs. Claus was never informed that her husband is dead, who is presumed to be the original Santa Claus. Allen also revealed some of The Santa Clauses’ plot points that will fill in some of those plot holes, especially now that he has a family of his own in the sequel series. We’d assume that Santa could be just about anyone if the story is set up to follow the idea that the merry man is more of an entity than an actual person.
Tim Allen is return in The Santas with the idea that he is finally going to put the red hat to rest. Allen’s Scott Calvin is much older in the new sequel series, and he’s about to retire from the Santa Claus role and must now find a suitable replacement. Given the aforementioned theory that anyone can become Santa Claus, maybe the original person who died could come back and save the day, or we might see the introduction of another Christmas ghostless person who has enough holiday cheer to become Claus.
Tim Allen isn’t the only actor out The Santas back for this new sequel series. David Krumholtz will also reprise his role as Bernard the Elf, much to the delight of all who have been fans of the franchise. Another idea about who could be next Santa Claus could paint right on Bernard, who has worked as a “head elf” long enough to give him a chance to get into the sleigh.
Anyway, Tim Allen returns to one of his best roles in The Santas, and the movies were always there to make us all believe in the magic of Christmas again. There hasn’t been a movie in the franchise since 2006 Santa Claus 3: The Escape Clause was released. Although the film had mixed reviews, it still made $110 million in worldwide box office numbers against a budget of $12 million.
We’re not quite sure how the new series is going to work out, but Tim Allen always has been great as Scott Calvin in the franchise, and now he has a new series to finally say goodbye to one of his most iconic roles. The Santas debuted with two episodes on November 16 on Disney+, with the third released yesterday on November 23. The limited series will be six episodes long and will officially end on December 14, just in time for Christmas and to say goodbye to Allen as the jolly gift giver.
