20 million people reportedly watched The Christmas Chronicles in its first week on Netflix — which goes a long way to explaining why next year you will get to see The Christmas Chronicles 2 on Netflix. The streaming service announced you can expect the film in time for Christmas 2020, and also revealed the first look at the movie, featuring Kurt Russell as Santa Claus and Goldie Hawn as Mrs. Claus. That’s it above.

Here is the official synopsis for the film, from Netflix’s press release:

In the sequel to 2018’s THE CHRISTMAS CHRONICLES, Kate Pierce — now a cynical teenager — is unexpectedly reunited with Santa Claus when a mysterious, magical troublemaker named Belsnickel threatens to destroy Christmas forever. Also returning are Darby Camp as Kate, Kimberly Williams Paisley as Claire and Judah Lewis as Teddy. New additions to the cast include Julian Dennison as Belsnickel, and Jahzir Bruno as Jack. Chris Columbus will direct and produce, alongside Mark Radcliffe and Michael Barnathan. The script is written by Matt Lieberman and Chris Columbus.

Chris Columbus’ Christmas bonafides include the first two Home Alones, as well as writing and producing Christmas With the Kranks. Christmas movies; people can’t get enough of them.
