Russell and Hawn aren’t the only ones set to return. In addition, actors Darby Camp, Kimberly Williams Paisley, and Judah Lewis, have all signed on to reprise their roles as Kate, Claire, and Teddy, respectively.
The returning cast members will be joined by newcomers Julian Dennison and Jahzir Bruno who have both joined the cast as well. They’ll be playing the roles of Belsnickel and Jack, respectively.
The character of Belsnickel sounds as though he’ll definitely prove to be a bit of a thorn in everyone’s side according to the official synopsis for the sequel.
When The Christmas Chronicles 2 makes its way to Netflix, we’ll catch up with Kate Pierce (now a cynical teenager) as she’s unexpectedly reunited with Santa Claus.
This time around, Christmas itself is in danger thanks to a mysterious magical troublemaker named Belsnickel, who threatens to destroy Christmas forever.
Directed by Chris Columbus, The Christmas Chronicles 2 is set to hit Netflix during the 2020 holiday season.
