In the Disney + series, Scott Calvin is about to turn 65 and realizes he can’t be Santa forever. He is starting to miss out on his responsibilities as Santa Claus and, more importantly, he has a family that could finally benefit from a life in the normal world, especially his two children who grew up at the Pole. With plenty of elves, children and a family to please, Scott sets out on a search for a suitable Santa to replace him as he prepares his family for a new adventure for a life south of the Pole.
