Tim Allen is returning as Santa Claus in The Santa Clauses in his first major acting role for 15 years - and if that doesn't make you feel Christmassy, we don't know what will. You can watch the trailer below:
The much-loved festive film is making a comeback - this time as a six-part series - and, 30 years on, Scott Calvin is returning as Santa Claus, with a whole host of fresh new problems to solve.
Approaching the age of 65, the series will follow Scott as he takes a step back from his role, choosing to spend more time with his family - his wife Carol and their kids, played by Elizabeth Allen-Dick and Austin Kane.
But first, he needs to choose a replacement to take over - although in true Scott fashion, things don't quite go to plan.
He ends up choosing the wrong successor, with the future of Christmas hanging in the balance.
The official synopsis explains: "Scott Calvin is back! After being Santa Claus for nearly thirty years, he’s as jolly as ever. But as Christmas declines in popularity, so does his Santa magic.
"Scott struggles to keep up with the demands of the job, as well as being there for his family. Upon discovering there is a way to retire from his post, Scott considers stepping down as Santa Claus and finding a worthy successor so that he can become a better father and husband."
Alongside Allen, Elizabeth Mitchell is returning as Santa Claus' wife, Mrs Claus, and Eric Lloyd as Scott's son Charlie Calvin will also make a comeback.
Much to fans' delight, David Krumholtz will make an appearance as number one elf Bernard, despite being absent from Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause.
Speaking about his return to the role, Allen told People: "To be on set again with so many of the original cast (more to come eventually) was like seeing family again.
"It's almost as if time had stood still other than my age. I look younger now in the Santa makeup than I do out of it."
The Santa Clauses is set to premiere on Disney Plus with its first two episodes on 16 November.
And if you need another reason to start feeling Christmassy, Will Ferrell is set to star in his first Christmas movie since Elf, which came out a whopping 19 years ago.
Spirited which also stars Ryan Reynolds, is set to be released in cinemas on 11 November and on Apple TV+ in the US on 18 November.
