“The Christmas Chronicles” Trailer: Kurt Russell Is Santa in Netflix’s Holiday Film

In Netflix’s upcoming holiday family film The Christmas Chronicles, Kurt Russell’s Kris Kringle isn’t the typical Santa Claus. The pic, produced by Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone), stars Judah Lewis (The Babysitter) and Darby Camp (Big Little Lies) as siblings Teddy and Kate Pierce. Their plan to catch Santa on camera goes awry when he crashes his sleigh in Chicago, leading them to team up with St. Nick and his elves to save Christmas. Russell’s fit, tough-guy Santa is nothing like previous portrayals of Kris Kringle, however. “You don’t look like Santa Claus,” Teddy tells him as the two stare at a traditional artist rendering of Father Christmas on a billboard across the street.“Well, billboards add 80 pounds,” Santa quips back. The film, which was helmed by The Angry Birds Movie director Clay Kaytis, is a co-production between Columbus’ 1492 Pictures, Madhouse Entertainment and Wonder Worldwide. The Christmas Chronicles will be streaming on Netflix, November 22 .
