Just in time for the holidays and gift giving, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment is releasing a fabulous new set of videos – the complete 3-movie collection of The Santa Clause 3-Movie Collection [Blu-ray]. Tim Allen plays one of my favorite Santa’s in this series and they’ve upped the funny quotient by added some fabulous featurettes!
THE SANTA CLAUSE is a fun holiday story about a man, Scott Calvin, who finds out he’s accidently inherited the position of Santa Claus and of course all the pitfalls and pratfalls that go with it. But it’s also a story about family, fatherhood, the meaning of Christmas, and more.
THE SANTA CLAUSE 2 takes place eight years after Calvin saves Christmas as well as his relationship with his son. In the 2nd movie Calvin finds out there’s another clause – he has a year to find a wife and get married. The film follows his dating adventures while he looks for his Mrs. Claus.
By the time THE SANTA CLAUSE 3 takes place, Calvin is well ensconced in his role as Santa. This time, he battles Jack Frost who’s found another clause in the Santa agreement that can get Calvin sent back to the moment he became Santa. It’s very much an homage to “It’s a Wonderful Life.”
