In an interview with Yahoo Entertainment, director Chris Columbus revealed that actor Kurt Russell wanted his role as Santa Claus in the “Christmas Chronicles” franchise to be the last of his career.
“[Kurt] said to me: “I want this to be the last role I will play.” He wants to come back [em novas sequências]. Deep in his soul, he is very committed to this role. And that means spending eight months growing a beard and working on the script every night with me before shooting. It’s an intense commitment. And he takes it seriously.
Netflix recently officially released the sequel ‘Christmas Chronicles 2’.
Watch the trailer:
It’s been two years since brothers Kate (Darby Camp) and Teddy Pierce (Judah Lewis) saved Christmas – and a lot has changed. Kate, now a cynical teenager, reluctantly spends Christmas vacation in Cancun with her mother’s new boyfriend and son, Jack (Jahzir Bruno). Reluctant to accept this new version of the family, Kate decides to flee. But when a mysterious and magical troublemaker named Belsnickel threatens to destroy the North Pole and end Christmas once and for all, Kate and Jack are drawn into a new adventure with Santa Claus (Russell).
Chris Columbus returns to the management.
The sequel also includes the return of Goldie Hawn, Darby Camp, Kimberly Williams Paisley and Judah Lewis. Newcomers Julian Dennison and Jahzir Bruno complete the cast.
