It’s time to invoke plaids and hot chocolates flavored with cinnamon and spices of all kinds since the Christmas bells are already ringing. And Disney, which remains the undisputed master of family entertainment full of good feelings, opens the recess with a very special series. Indeed, it is indeed the continuation of the films Great Christmas which arrives in six new episodes on the Disney+ platform this Wednesday, November 16. Something to delight the whole family in this fiction that immerses us in the mythical scenery of the North Pole and the workshops of Santa Claus’ elves.

Great Christmas : the film franchise reinvents itself in a family and dynamic series

If you are a real fan of Christmas and the films that animate the season, then you must know Super Noël. In 1994, Tim Allen interpreted for the first time Scott Calvin, a new Santa Claus characterized by his humor. Two other films will follow, released in 2002 and 2006. Building on its popularity, the franchise is back in a modernized version. Tim Allen still embodies Santa Claus there, but with almost thirty years in the business, he is aging and losing his magic. After a few accidents that largely frightened his elves, he decides to step down and look for his successor. If it is difficult to qualify the pitch as original, the atmosphere has been able to renew itself. The direction full of energy, in particular thanks to scenes which tastyly exploit the comic potential of an organization of elves almost professional (but not too much) as well as to musical scenes where great hits like that of Cyndi Lauper but in the “Elves just wanna have fun” version, we let ourselves be taken in by this cozy and joyful atmosphere, with ideas that put a smile on our faces. If video games and drones come to wreak havoc on Christmas, we can count on nods to films to bring the necessary touch of nostalgia.

The return of the franchise’s iconic actors

Who says continuation, says meeting of the actors. In this very red and green atmosphere, in the middle of overexcited elves, we thus find Tim Allen who always gives the answer to the one who embodies his wife, Mrs. Claus, since the second opus of the saga, Elizabeth Mitchell (recently seen in a very special Netflix series). Eric Lloyd also takes on the role of Charlie, the eldest son and heir to Santa Claus. Among the new arrivals, we note above all the arrival of Kal Penn in the role of Simon, the actor rose to fame for his role as Kevin in How I Met Your Mother and Kevin (yes, again) in The Big Bang Theoryas well as internal medicine in Dr House.
