This movie features yet another Kurt Russell connection to Elvis Presley, of which there have been several in his career. Kurt Russell's first movie was "It Happened at the World's Fair" (1963), in which Elvis pays Russell to kick him in the shin. Sixteen years later, Russell was the lead in the TV movie "Elvis" (1979). Then, 15 years later, Russell lent his voice to the actor playing a young Elvis Presley in "Forrest Gump" (1994). Russell played an ex-con who robs a casino during an Elvis Impersonator Convention in Vegas in "3000 Miles to Graceland" (2001). And here in The Christmas Chronicles (2018), the song that Santa (Russell) sings in the jail scene is one of Elvis' most popular Christmas songs, "Santa Claus is Back in Town" (1957). See more
At the beginning of the film, the girl Kate is shown as a baby only a few weeks old on Christmas 2007. Later, on Christmas Eve 2018 when her brother Teddy takes her camera away from her in her bedroom, he says "you're ten years old, almost eleven." This doesn't make sense because at this point in time, she would've already turned eleven years old a few weeks ago. See more
