The Santa Clauses has a new cast member. Laura San Giacomo has been added to the cast as a Christmas witch.
Personally, I never knew that there was such a thing as a Christmas witch, but in Italian folklore, La Befana, is one. She delivers gifts to children the morning of the epiphany.
Now, La Befana lives in the Wobbly Woods of the North Pole.
The Santa Clauses will be about, “Scott Calvin is on the brink 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 his two kids who have grown up at the Pole. 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.”
But we’re excited to see both Tim Allen (to the role, not him – cause yes, his political views are something that I strongly disagree with) and Elizabeth Mitchell both return to a holiday world that we love. Kal Penn is also returning to the series, as is David Krumholtz. Joining The Santa Clause as series regulars are Austin Kane, Rupali Redd, Elizabeth Allen-Dick, and Devin Bright.
The series is set to air this winter on Disney+.
