The legendary Kurt Russell (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) is now Santa in Netflix‘s upcoming original movie The Christmas Chronicles. This film sees Claus running into a snag while delivering presents on Christmas Eve when his reindeer are forced to crash land. Now he’s forced to interact and banter with folks on the street, including Crazy Ex-Girlfriend‘s Vella Lovell and New Girl’s Lamorne Morris. He also gets to enjoy himself a little, as the footage above showcases Russell dunking a present, referencing Star Wars, and going to jail.
The film sees credits from large-scale blockbusters, including Mark Radcliffe, who was executive producer of 2001’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
Check out the trailer above and catch The Christmas Chronicles November 22.
