Ho.Ho. Ho. Time for a little holiday cheer courtesy of Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn!
The 2018 Netflix movie The Christmas Chronicles was such a hit it was inevitable that a sequel would soon be on the way. Veteran filmmaker directed The Christmas Chronicles 2. It’s just what we need right now to lift our spirits and enjoy with the whole family.
Kurt Russell is back as Jolly old St. Nick but this time around we get more insight into Mrs Claus who of course is played by Goldie Hawn. Hawn made a cameo in the first installment at the very end but this time around we really get to know the life-force behind St. Nick! The real-life couple are truly adorable making us ponder, could they really be Mr. and Mrs Claus?
In a recent interview with PEOPLE, director Columbus said filming with the two stars brought “a lot of laughter” to the set.
“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 says. “They just get along beautifully.”
Young Darby Camp returns as Kate Pierce, now a cynical teen who is unexpectedly reunited with Santa Claus when a mysterious troublemaker threatens to cancel Christmas – forever. Kimberly Williams-Paisley returns as Kate’s mom Claire and new to the fold are Tyrese who plays Williams’ boyfriend. Newcomer Jahzir Bruno plays Tyrese’ son and Julian Dennison plays Belsnickel.
