Anna Kendrick to play a female Santa Claus, *sunglasses drop* deal with it

01.12.2017

It seems Anna Kendrick is going to be starring in a new Disney family film (tentatively) titled NICOLE, about "Santa’s daughter who is forced to take over the family business when her father decides to retire and brother ends up getting cold feet prior to his first big Christmas Eve flight." It is being written by MISS CONGENIALITY scribe Marc Lawrence, who is also set to direct.

Look, even though she is not an actual gener-swapped Santa (and just his daughter), I can still just imagine the comments section going crazy because none other than a GIRL (yuck!) is going to be playing SANTA CLAUS (whaaaaaaaaat)!? I mean, "aren't you just outraged at PC-culture running amuck?" I can hear them saying, "Next thing you know, they're going to try to have females - of all people - with equal representation in the cinema (instead of just 27% of speaking parts), and possibly even *gasp* headlining more films! What's next, gender-swapping horror icons and Marvel heroes? The madness, THE HORROR!!!

But what do you Schmoes think of this news, honestly? And I love you guys, I really do, but for the small percentage of you that don't like me (which is fair, I am an asshole), I eagerly await my customary "SJW", "white knight", "cuck", and "beta" non-insults in the comments section below. I feed on your sad, angry tears *sluuuuuurp*. For the rest of you <3.

Also no release date has been set yet, but you can be rest assured it will come out around Christmas time. Or right after Halloween, as that seems to be when Christmas starts now, at least according to every f*cking store ever.

Extra Tidbit: At one point, there was an EXXXTREME '90s comic book series called SANTA THE BARBARIAN.

Enough of the sexist baiting remarks.

Ghostbusters sucked, it wasn't because it was all girls but because the cast was D list unfunny hacks. Anna Kendrick could have saved that movie, along with plenty of other funny actresses. She could play God, Hitler, Seth Rogan in a biopic and it would be just fine. Nobody cares about the gender swapping part, it's more about the cast that angers people.

So Santa's DAUGHTER (nice clickbait title btw) is female and people are going to get up in arms over it?

Get over yourself.

That's the weird thing, I haven't seen anyone on the other side of this argument yet.

Ultimately it could be considered one of those fill in the blank movies.
Santa can't deliver the presents on Christmas Eve so (fill in the blank) must take his place.
Been done with sons, brothers, animals and just about any cartoon character you can think of.
so was kind of overdue for a girl to do it, though I think a couple of female toons have done it.

This sounds all right. I think the writer has read the comments sections of too many Ghostbusters articles, which is not healthy. That's over now. The movie already came out. It wasn't bad. No sequel is planned. We can move on with our lives now.

Outrage?

The only outrage here will be the writer of this article when they realize we dont have any outrage at Santas daughter being.. (wait for it)... female. Its obviously a comedy and sounds like a nice idea for a relaxing fun movie. We get a decent actress, with a decent director and a decent idea. Sounds good to me.

Outraged? I'm ecstatic! It's good to hear there are cool Schmoes here after all :)

And trust me, not necessarily here, but I've already seen comments getting mad that why it can't be a son, and that making it a daughter at all is a sign of the PC police.

Glad to hear that's not happening here though.

It's a fun premise, she's not playing Santa Claus though, she's his daughter. That's not the same as making her St. Nick.

It would certainly be stranger, not offensive, but odd. Fresh off the Boat already gave me a great female Santa Claus though.

This is actually a pretty clever idea and will probably end up being a big hit (considering most animated films these days do very well for themselves).

Plus, huge fan of Kendrick and will watch anything with her in it. Hopefully she'll get a chance to sing a song or two in this.

I think it's got a great shot, but is it animated? I thought it was live action. Sounds fun either way.

Lol, you should read some of my comments sections sometime.

And I agree, I like the idea (if it wasn't obvious in the article).
