We know Kurt Russell for a number of films – most recently he played a badass in the Fast and Furious franchise. In November, he will play the role of Santa in the Netflix original film, The Christmas Chronicles. Russell plays the realistic version of Santa Claus. The trailer doesn’t give out much information. But what’s clear is that Russell’s Santa has to collaborate with the kids to deliver the gifts this year around.
Chris Columbus, who earlier produced films like Home Alone and Harry Potter will bring director Clay Kaytis, of The Angry Birds Movie, about how a brother and sister decide to film Santa Claus while delivering the gifts. However, that caused an almost derailment for Santa, putting Christmas itself in danger.
The trailer promises good, cool family action with some drama and thrills – just the thing one needs on a Christmas Night. The Christmas Chronicles starts streaming on Netflix in November.
