The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause

Question: What ever happened to Bernard? He is non-existent in this movie and nobody seems to notice.

Answer: David Krumholtz (Benard) is busy on his show "Numb3rs" on CBS and is committed to that so he didn't return for The Santa Clause 3. I guess they could have explained his absence, but the filmakers decided not to. They simply promoted Curtis since he was in the 2nd movie.

Carl Missouri

Answer: He was on another show at the time, but was also 28 years old. And while he pushes the limits of being the childlike elf in the first two movies, he was most likely too old for the role in the third.

Question: If Jack Frost was able to change history simply by running over and putting the coat on, why couldn't Scott do the same thing, instead of holding Jack so his younger self had time to put it on?

Chosen answer: Then it would have been the older Scott that became Santa, and also would have created a paradox since the younger Scott would never have become Santa.

Question: Just curious. How can the Escape Clause still work when the words are spoken via tape recorder?

JohnShel91

Answer: The snow globe only had to hear Scot/Santa's or Frost's voice being spoken to it in order to activate the Escape Clause. The snow globe could not differentiate between a recording of his voice and someone speaking to it in person.

Answer: Because of the snow globe listen to the voice of the Santa that is playing Santa the tape recorder had frost voice on there. Just like frost used Santa to get what he wanted by making Santa say it.

Question: What happened to Abby the Elf? She was in the second movie and should have been young enough to have been in the third movie.

Answer: She is in the movie. In the scene Where Carol is being rushed to the hospital, Abby is by her side.

Answer: The same thing that I think happened to Judy, she was too old for the role to continue.

Continuity mistake: Charlie and Scott come across the empty Santa suit in the flashback to the first movie, and the body and all the limbs of the suit are flat in the snow. A shot from the unconscious Santa's right shoulder then shows his arm and gloved hand still upright and in position to wave "bye-bye" before he disappears.
