Where Does The Santa Clauses Start From?
The Santa Clauses series is based on the 1994 movie The Santa Clause, 2002 The Santa Clause 2, and 2006 The Santa Clause 3. The six-episodic series begins 30 years after with Scott Calvin reprising his titular role of Santa Claus. Although sadly, the world has turned more pessimistic, Scott Calvin’s Santa Claus magic is gradually decreasing. Above all this, the children from the previous three Santa Claus series are grown up now and do not have faith in Santa Claus anymore.
In the Santa Claus trailer, when Scott falls down, a woman throws a wine bottle at him, assuming he is a burglar. While he resides in the North Pole with his wife and two children, he struggles to balance his job duties and personal life. With time, as he grows weary of his new identity, he soon finds that only if he finds a perfect replacement, he can retire from his job. Discovering so, Scott makes up his mind to do so and live his normal life all over again.
Although, he soon rethinks his decision upon realizing that he had chosen the wrong person for the replacement, who is less capable of taking responsibility for Christmas eve. This compels Scott Calvin to resume his job so that no one else ruins the holiday while his family is on their way to the North Pole.
