The Christmas Chronicles is a 2018 American Christmas comedy film directed by Clay Kaytis and based on Matt Lieberman’s screenplay. Kurt Russell, Judah Lewis, Darby Camp, Lamorne Morris, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, and Oliver Hudson star in the film.
It is the first installment in the film series The Christmas Chronicles. The film was produced by 1492 Pictures and Wonder Worldwide and was released on Netflix on November 22, 2018.
Will There Be a Christmas Chronicles 3?
There have been many big-screen Santas, but a few stand out: Tim Allen, from the Christmas film ‘The Santa Clause,’ has long been a fan; Ed Asner, from ‘Elf,’ plays an old curmudgeonly one; and Billy Bob Thornton, from ‘Bad Santa.’
When it comes to the ideal Santa who would jump down our chimneys to bring holiday cheer, Kurt Russel remains at the top of the pyramid.
Concerning a potential third installment in the series, the most recent installment was released in 2020, and Netflix has made no announcements since then. However, we should not discourage them from getting another one.
The Christmas Chronicles 2 currently has a Tomatometer Score of 62%, which is a good sign for any Netflix holiday film. So, before deciding on a third installment of the franchise, this streaming service will analyze the viewing numbers to determine its success.
Expected Plot for the Third Movie
The Christmas Chronicles 2 concluded on a cheerful note. As Kate travels through time, she encounters her younger father from 1990 Boston and realizes that meeting him was predestined so she could say goodbye.
Finally, Belsnickel apologizes for his actions and accepts Santa and Mrs. Claus’ love and support.
Given this plot, the potential third film would most likely explore a new angle and possibly introduce a new villain to add adventure and action to the traditional holiday tale.
Christmas Chronicles 3 Release Date
If Netflix maintains its current production rate, The Christmas Chronicles 3 could be released in November 2022.
It’s worth noting that the sequel wasn’t formally announced by the streaming service until two months before its November 2020 release date, so The Christmas Chronicles 3 may not receive any further announcements.
Christmas Chronicles 3 Cast
Kurt Russell will reprise his role as Santa Claus, and Goldie Hawn will reprise her role as Mrs. Claus in what could be the third installment of the Christmas Chronicles series.
Julian Dennison as Belsnickel may make a cameo after breaking the human curse at the end of the film and being transformed back into an elf after realizing his mistake in attempting to ruin Christmas.
Darby Camp and Judah Lewis reprised their roles as Kate and Teddy Pierce in the sequel, but it appears that their journey is now complete, as Kate reconciled with her mother’s new lover (played by Tyrese Gibson).
If a third film is made, we anticipate that it will feature some new young actors taking part in a joyful journey.
Is the Christmas Chronicles 3 Happening on Netflix?
There are several top contenders for big-screen Santas: Aside from the Santa Clauses, Tim Allen is a long-time favorite; Ed Asner played a curt, jolly Santa in Elf; and Billy Bob Thornton and David Harbour are for those who prefer the crude and violent.
Kurt Russell rocketed to the top of the list with The Christmas Chronicles, Netflix’s 2018 holiday smash-hit starring the legendary actor as Kris Kringle himself. He returned for The Christmas Chronicles 2 two years later.
For Christmas Chronicles 3 Trailer
Unfortunately, nothing has been confirmed, so we won’t know anything about the third film for quite some time.
Before the Netflix premiere, only one month had passed since the sequel’s trailer was released.
