This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
The Santa Clause

The Santa Clause 4 will see Charlie getting married and having him deal with telling his fiance that his dad is Santa Claus.

  • Naturally a "new" part of the clause will be discovered involving this sort of situation.
  • Lucy will be absent from this one explained away by being in college.

The elves in this movie are child vampires of the Twilight variety.

  • Hence the sparkles.

The names of the eight main reindeer (Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, etc.) aren't names...

  • ...but titles, passed down through the generations, much like "Santa Claus" itself. Therefore, Chett won't be "Chett" forever.

Scott killed Santa for good.

  • The entire film franchise is a series of stories Charlie created to distract himself from the truth: His dad killed the spirit of childhood.

The original Santa killed himself.

  • The real Santa would know not to make so much noise. He made all that noise intentionally so Scott would go out and check, then when Scott yelled at him he pretended to be shocked and intentionally slipped.

The Original Santa used the Escape Clause.

He went back in time because he thought he could retire, and he chose someone who had no problem taking his job.

The original Santa is the Santa Claus The Movie Santa.

He's been doing this for centuries and thought maybe by this movie he should use the Escape Clause and retire with his wife.

The original Santa is not The True Original Santa.

That Santa would have been the original Saint Nicholas. The Santa that died/disappeared falling off the roof had replaced one that had been around earlier, who'd replaced the one before that, who'd replaced the one before... and so on and on all the way back to Saint Nick himself. Presumably each Santa lasts for decades, even centuries, until he no longer can do so, and someone new finds the card and suit, stepping into the position of being Santa. No doubt this might be something arraigned by the original Saint Nick, a perk of being a saint.
