Christopher Columbus is producing the new Christmas movie coming to Netflix next month and we’re so frickin’ excited.
The Christmas Chronicles starring Kurt Russell will be available to stream from November 22nd.
It tells the story of a sister and brother, Kate (Darby Camp) and Teddy Pierce (Judah Lewis), whose Christmas Eve plan to catch Santa Claus (Kurt Russell) on camera turns into an unexpected journey that most kids could only dream about.
Netflix tweeted the news earlier today, giving us a first look at Kurt Russell as Santa Claus.
‘Chris Columbus has produced a new holiday movie: #TheChristmasChronicles, starring Kurt Russell as Santa Claus – FIRST LOOK,’ they wrote.
