Santa is gaining a very familiar companion in a newly announced sequel to Netflix’s The Christmas Chronicles. Goldie Hawn is joining Kurt Russell in the new movie.

Real life couple Hawn and Russell will be playing the jolliest pair in the North Pole, Mr. and Mrs. Claus. While Netflix just shared a sneak peek, fans will have to wait till next Christmas to see the movie when it debuts during the 2020 holiday season.

The Christmas Chronicles follows the story of a young girl, Kate Pierce, and her brother, Teddy, after they sneak aboard Santa’s sleigh and crash it. Together they must help the jolly old elf in order to save Christmas.

According to the film’s synopsis, The Christmas Chronicles 2 will see Kate returning to the North Pole when a “troublemaker” named Belsnickel “threatens to destroy Christmas forever.”
