The Santa Claus movie franchise will always be the most preferred film series to binge on during the Christmas holidays. The third part of the film series The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause came out in 2006. However, with the holidays nearing, even after fifteen long years, fans still wonder if The Santa Clause 4 will ever come into existence. The comedy movie series has been one of the highest-grossing franchises for Disney, making an overall profit of $470.1 million for its three films.
The movie series revolves around a divorced dad, Scott calving, who accidentally ends up causing the death of a man dressed in Santa’s costume during the Christmas holidays with his son. Soon after, they are transported to the North Pole, where the elves tell him that he must fulfill the empty spot as the Santa Clause. The film series has stretched out for three successful movies over the course of twelve years. But will there be The Santa Clause 4? Let’s find out!
The Santa Clause 4: Will The Franchise Return For The Fourth Installment?
The first film of The Santa Clause series came out in the year 1994. With a budget of $22 million, the first part managed to gross an overall profit of $190 million alone. However, the profit degraded over the next two installments with $172 million for the second part and a reasonably low profit of $110 million for the third installment. Meanwhile, the budget had also degraded through three installments.
Thus, considering the profit margins, Disney has refrained from going ahead with The Santa Clause 4. So unfortunately, it seems highly unlikely that the fans will get to see a fourth installment of the franchise. However, fans can stay hopeful that Disney might be interested in working on the Santa Clause Franchise in the future.
Who Could Return For The Santa Clause 4?
If the fourth installment happens, Tim Allen will likely reprise his role as Scott Calvin. Moreover, Reic Llyod as Charlie Calvin, Judge Reinhold as Neil Miller, Wendy Crewson as Laura Miller, Peter Boyle as Mr. Whittle, David Krumholtz as Bernard the Elf could also return.
Further, Elizabeth Mitchell as Carol Newman Calvin, Liliana Mumy as Lucy Miller, Spencer Breslin as Curtis the Elf, Aisha Tyler as Mother nature, Jay Thomas as Easter Bunny, Kevin Pollak as Cupid, and Art LaFleur as Tooth Fairy could join the cast. Fans could also see some new faces if Disney confirms The Santa Clause 4.
The Santa Claus 4: When Will it Return?
Disney has not confirmed The Santa Clause 4 yet. It’s been more than 15 years since the last installment was released. So, predicting a tentative release date would be unfair with no assurance of the franchise’s future. However, fans can stream all three parts on Disney+. So, stay tuned for more thrilling updates about your favorite movies and TV shows.
