"No one is better suited than Kurt Russell to bring our version of a rugged, charismatic, and hilarious Santa Claus to life," said Director Clay Kaytis.
"From our first meeting, he completely threw himself into this iconic role - and grew an impressive beard in the process. It has been a dream come true to work with Kurt in creating what I believe will be the new definition of Santa Claus for generations to come."
“Kurt is the definitive Santa Claus. Charismatic, tough when needed with a wicked sense of humour," revealed Producer Chris Columbus.
"We’re really excited for audiences to see his performance onscreen and hope The Christmas Chronicles becomes a timeless classic.”
The Christmas Chronicles is released on Netflix on November 22.
