The Santa Clause, a beloved holiday classic, was followed by The Santa Clause 2 and The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause. For The Santa Clauses, a spinoff to the original trilogy, Disney+ earlier this year revealed Allen would don his Kris Kringle garb once more. David Krumholtz’s recurrence as Bernard the Elf in The Santa Clauses was recently announced.
Just one year later, in 1994, another popular Allen character Buzz Lightyear debuted in a movie. The next Disney feature, which recasts Allen and introduces Chris Evans, centres on the hero who served as the inspiration for the toy.
