Christmas has come early as Netflix drops the teaser for their upcoming family-adventure The Christmas Chronicles. Kurt Russell stars as a sexy Santa Claus who quips and crashes and gets into car chases. I don’t know if him being sexy is the point. But with the wild charisma and lush, white locks of Kurt Russell, there’s no way around that. So, yeah. I’m hot for Santa now. Thanks, Netflix.

Here’s the official synopsis from Netflix:

The Christmas Chronicles, a holiday adventure from producer Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone) and director Clay Kaytis (The Angry Birds Movie), tells the story of sister and brother, Kate (Darby Camp) and Teddy Pierce (Judah Lewis), whose Christmas Eve plan to catch Santa Claus (Kurt Russell) on camera turns into an unexpected journey that most kids could only dream about. After staking out Santa’s arrival, they sneak into his sleigh, cause it to crash and nearly derail Christmas. As their wild night unfolds, Kate and Teddy work together with Santa - as you’ve never seen him before - and his loyal Elves to save Christmas before it’s too late.

Weird fuzzy elves aside, this looks downright delightful.


The Christmas Chronicles will launch globally on Netflix November 22.
