Here's Everything We Know About 'The Christmas Chronicles 2'

Here's Everything We Know About 'The Christmas Chronicles 2'

Last year, Netflix produced an unexpected Christmas classic, The Christmas Chronicles, starring Kurt Russell as one of the big screen's greatest Santas.

The festive adventure movie was an instant hit with viewers. So much so the streaming giant announced a sequel in December, teasing more Father Christmas but, more importantly, more Mrs. Claus, played by Goldie Hawn.

Currently feeling the festive cheer, we decided to search the internet high and low for more information about the sequel - and here's what we've found so far:

What will The Christmas Chronicles 2 about?

The film's first instalment, The Christmas Chronicles, followed "true believers" Kate and Teddy Pierce, who attempted to capture Santa Claus (Kirk Russell) on Christmas Eve.

However, after their plan went awry and they accidentally crashed Santa's sleigh, the sibling duo joined forces with St Nick to get the presents delivered on time - although we all know it wasn't as easy as that.

The plot of the sequel, The Christmas Chronicles 2, will revisit Kate, who is now a disillusioned teenager, and her brother Teddy.

According to Netflix, this time around, Kate is: "unexpectedly reunited with Santa Claus when a mysterious, magical troublemaker named Belsnickel (Julian Dennison) threatens to destroy Christmas forever."

When will The Christmas Chronicles 2 be released?

Our patience is about to be tested as The Christmas Chronicles 2 won't hit streaming giant Netflix until the 2020 holiday season.

However, if IMDB is anything to go by, Hawn's son Oliver Hudson, who starred in The Christmas Chronicles as the father to the two lead children, won't be returning.

Although new director Chris Columbus, who is taking over the director's chair from Clay Kaytis, hasn't ruled out an appearance from other family members; Kate Hudson and Wyatt Hawn Russell, in The Christmas Chronicles 2.

Speaking to People, the Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets filmmaker said: "You never know".

We'll have to patently wait to find out more!
