Throughout these movies, Scott Calvin, portrayed by Allen, learns about the true meaning of Christmas, all while trying to be the best Santa possible. Thanks to a partnership with Disney, The Santa Clause will play on Dec. 25 on the television network, Freeform, in conjunction with their “25 Days of Christmas” movie schedule.
Christmas Day holds a marathon of The Santa Clause, with the first movie in the trilogy playing at 10:30 a.m. That’s followed by The Santa Clause 2, which broadcasts at 12:30 p.m. The final movie in the collection, The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause, broadcasts at 2:30 p.m.
