The Christmas Chronicles 2 Trailer Has Kurt Russell in a Race to Save the Holidays
The Christmas Chronicles 2 trailer has arrived. This is our first extensive look at the highly anticipated sequel, after Netflix released a teaser back in September. The holiday movie was directed and co-written by Chris Columbus (Home Alone}, and stars Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn as Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus, respectively. Columbus says that it was a lot of fun getting to work with Russell and Hawn on the sequel. “There’s a tremendous amount of respect there and a tremendous amount of love and trust, partially because they’ve been together for so long,” he said. “They just get along beautifully… There’s a lot of laughter and it’s just a really, really fun set.”
It’s been two years since siblings Kate (Darby Camp) and Teddy Pierce (Judah Lewis) saved Christmas, and a lot has changed. Kate, now a cynical teenager, is reluctantly spending Christmas in Cancun with her mom’s new boyfriend (Tyrese Gibson) and his son Jack (Jahzir Bruno). Unwilling to accept this new version of her family, Kate decides to run away. But when a mysterious, magical troublemaker named Belsnickel threatens to destroy the North Pole and end Christmas for good, Kate and Jack are unexpectedly pulled into a new adventure with Santa Claus (Kurt Russell).
In addition to Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn as Mr. and Mrs. Claus, The Christmas Chronicles 2 also stars Darby Camp, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Jahzir Bruno, Julian Dennison, Tyrese Gibson, Darlene Love, and Judah Lewis. Hawn previously had a small cameo in the first installment at the end of the movie, so her part has been greatly expanded for the sequel, which premieres November 25th, exclusively on Netflix.
