Tim Allen Fought To Keep Christ-mas In The Santa Clauses Series
For Tim Allen, The Santa Clauses series on Disney+ became an exercise in standing up for his faith. The conservative Christian celebrity insisted on keeping the “Christ” in Christmas!
When considering appearing in The Santa Clauses series for Disney+, actor Tim Allen noticed it was missing something very important. The original script didn’t include any kind of religious focus.
And as an executive producer and a man who is very open about his beliefs, Tim wasn’t having it!
“In the beginning there were a lot of otherworldly characters, ghosts and goblins.” I said no, it’s Christmas. it’s christmas It is literally a religious holiday,” he explained. “We don’t have to blow the horn, but I want you to accept it.” That’s what it’s about. If you want to get into Santa Claus, you’re going to have to go back in history, and it’s all about religion.”
The religious background will not appear until the last two episodes of the Santa Claus series. But Tim Allen is happy with the result.
“It’s really great,” he said. “They took the chance and we did really well.”
Exploring the history of Santa Claus
The Santa Claus series will revisit Tim Allen Scott Calvin’s character from the Santa Claus film franchise, whose first film was released in 1994. In it, due to an accident, Scott (played by Tim Allen) suddenly takes over the role of Santa Claus. This comically results in some unintended physical changes (hair loss, beard, weight gain) that make Scott look more like a traditional Santa Claus.
And all this time Scott is actively trying to hide his new identity from family and friends!
In Santa Claus on Disney+, Scott Calvin turns 65 and must find his successor as Santa Claus. And Tim revealed that the six-part series (which features Tim Allen’s 13-year-old real-life daughter Elizabeth Allen-Dick) will explore the Christian roots behind the Santa Claus legend.
“We dive deep as it gets later about St. Nicholas and the Turkish priest that started this,” he said, explaining that the heart of Christmas is giving.
Feedback on Tim Allen The Santa Series
The release date of Santa Claus 2022 started with the first two episodes on 16. November. And almost immediately, a line from one of the first episodes allegedly confronted Tim Allen.
In the show, Santa Claus answers the question of what is bothering him: “Merry Christmas for everyone has suddenly become problematic!
The joke sparked debate on social media, with director Scott Weinberg writing: “It felt really weird to put on a children’s show. “[Someone] wants to stop us from saying Merry Christmas!” it’s not some random campaign. It is a humble attempt to denigrate anyone who does not celebrate this holiday. In an adult film I would just groan and ignore it.”
The “war on Christmas” debate has been going on for some time. And while the Santa Claus series is in no way intended to be a religious production, we applaud Tim Allen for fighting to incorporate the religious aspect of the holiday into the show!
