The Christian faith plays a significant role in Tim Allen’s new miniseries, “The Santa Clauses,” of “Home Improvement” fame.
The newest Tim Allen miniseries, “The Santa Clauses,” dropped on Disney+ this morning, and to mark the occasion, the former “Home Improvement” star claims that the purpose of the program is to restore the “Christ” of Christmas.
Allen Introducing a new “Christ” to Christmas Allen, 69, made it clear to The Wrap that he wanted the fourth film in his The Santa Clause series to be based on his Christian faith.
“How exactly religion will come into play remains unclear, especially considering the original trilogy of films never explicitly went in that direction,” Andi Ortiz posted to 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, like ghosts and goblins,” I said no, this is Christmas. Its Christ-mas. “It is a religious holiday,” added Allen.
“We don’t have to blow trumpets, but I 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.”
Allen bets twice.
Allen then told the audience that the religious part of the miniseries doesn’t show up until the fifth or sixth episode but that the writers did a “brilliant” job of incorporating Christianity.
“It’s wonderful,” he said. “They took a chance, and we did it well.”
Allen’s only requirement for joining the miniseries was to be true to the film series he’s been a part of since his start in 1994.
“It’s a strange thing; on “Last Man Standing,” I was also an EP, and I knew where I wanted to go with that.” And Jack Burditt wrote it as well; he’s here with us. “And it’s not easy for him or me,” he explained. “I write, I’ve written movies, and I’m the plot guy.” So that’s kind of where I’m at with this. “And I get very confused with too much detail.”
“I need to know where we’re going at the end of this beat.” “And it took quite a bit of massaging from both the Disney folks and Jack to get chapter one—which I call [this] a six-chapter book—I needed that to launch this thing,” Allen continued. “Respect the last one, and let’s not be too gamey with it.”
Allen Explains How He Has Survived in Hollywood. Aside from discussing his sitcoms “Home Improvement” and “Last Man Standing,” Allen also spoke to Forbes about how he has endured in Hollywood for so long.
Allen responded, “Well, I just adapt,” noting how streaming services had changed the industry and forced everyone to be more politically correct than before.
“What motivates me is creativity, entertainment, and making people excited, funny, happy, or whatever we’re attempting to do,” he said. “So, it’s all about the union and the crew.” If everyone is taken care of there, I’ll get taken care of. “We’ll figure that out.”
