But when she read for it, she read so well that they said, ‘We’d like to read more of her a part.’ I said, “Whatever you want to do. I don’t want anything to do with it. I don’t want to suggest my daughter for a role in the movie.” “But eventually she rose to the higher ranks. They loved how she read, loved it so much because she’s playing a 13-year-old girl and she’s 13. They ended up casting her as Santa’s daughter. It was one Surprise, but it turned out to be the most amazing experience.”

According to Disney, Scott Calvin is as “merry as ever” after being Santa for nearly three decades, but “Christmas is waning in popularity, as is his Santa magic of being there for his family.” When he discovers there is a way to retire from his post, Scott considers stepping down as Santa and finding a worthy successor so he can be a better father and husband.”
For “Merry Christmas,” Allen’s character decides to retire and plans to spend Christmas with his family for the first time. But the “new Santa Claus” destroys the Christmas spirit, and “when the last light goes out, Christmas could be over”.
“I retired too soon. I hired the wrong guy,” says Scott in the official trailer. “I have to go back to the North Pole.”
