Tim Allen of “Home Improvement” fame is making Christianity a major part of his new miniseries “The Santa Clauses.”
Tim Allen’s new miniseries “The Santa Clauses” dropped on Disney+ this morning, and to mark the occasion, the former “Home Improvement” star is saying that the show is out to put the “Christ” back in Christmas.
Allen Putting ‘Christ’ Back In Christmas
Allen, 69, made it clear to The Wrap that with this fourth installment of his The Santa Clause film series, he wanted it to be faith-based.
“How exactly religion will come into play remains unclear, especially considering the original trilogy of films never explicitly went in that direction,” Andi Ortiz wrote for the publication. “But, according to Allen, it was important to him that ‘The Santa Clauses’ did, and avoided any kind of crazy creatures or spirits.”
“It originally had a lot of otherworldly characters, and ghosts, and goblins. I said no, this is Christ-mas. Its Christ-mas. It literally is a religious holiday,” Allen said. “We don’t have to blow trumpets, but I do want you to acknowledge it. That’s what this is about. If you want to get into Santa Claus, you’re gonna have to go back to history, and it’s all about religion.”
