Tim Allen’s Daughter Elizabeth Allen-Dick Joins Disney+’s ‘The Santa Clause’ Series

Tim Allen is bringing his daughter into his iconic Disney holiday franchise. According to Deadline, Elizabeth Allen-Dick has joined the cast of Disney+’s The Santa Clause (tentatively titled The Clauses) limited series as a series regular, playing her dad’s on-screen daughter. She joins previously announced Kal Penn.

In The Clauses, Scott Calvin is on the brink of his 65th birthday and realizing that he can’t be Santa forever. He’s starting to lose a step in his Santa duties, and more importantly, he’s got a family who could benefit from a life in the normal world, especially his two kids who have grown up at the Pole. With a lot of elves, children, and family to please, Scott sets out to find a suitable replacement Santa while preparing his family for a new adventure in a life south of the pole.

Also joining The Santa Clause as series regulars are Austin Kane, Rupali Redd and Devin Bright. Still no word on David Krumholtz’s Bernard and that upsets me.

Allen-Dick makes her acting debut as Sandra, the youngest child of Scott Calvin (Allen) and Carol (Mitchell). Sandra is a bit rough and tumble, has a passionate sense of right and wrong, and a strong connection to animals, mostly because there are no humans her age at the North Pole, which makes her lonely.

Kane appears as Cal, the older son of Scott Calvin and his wife Caro. Cal lacks drive and focus, isn’t sure what he wants but knows it’s not at the North Pole and appears ill-equipped to survive in either world, although that might be slowly changing.

Newcomer Redd will play Grace. Sweet, loving, and kind, Grace is the angelic daughter of game inventor and product developer, Simon Choksi (Penn). Her wide-eyed belief in Santa, and her love for all things Christmas, could melt the heart of even the biggest non-believer.

Bright takes on Noel, Santa’s trusted right-hand elf. Optimistic and energetic, Noel perceives himself as Santa’s best friend.

Jason Winer will direct the series. Award-winning Jack Burditt (30 Rock, Modern FamilyFrasier, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) is the executive producer and showrunner, and Kevin Hench (Last Man Standing), Richard Baker, and Rick Messina will also serve as executive producers alongside Tim Allen. Production is slated to begin this month; however, with production being such a broad term, this could simply mean that the series will continue casting or begin its principal photography.
