The 2002 sequel to Tim Allen's holiday blockbuster The Santa Clause is given a more than adequate treatment on its first DVD release. For a film directed primarily at children, there is a surprising abundance of special features packed into this single-disc package. Director Michael Lembeck provides a feature-length audio commentary track for viewers interested in some insight into what went into the film's creation. For more behind-the-scenes info, a making-of featurette and a "Tour of Elfsburg" are included too. Additionally, fans of the film should be happy to discover a selection of seven scenes that were left on the cutting room floor and a collection of humorous outtakes. For younger audience-members, there is a game that can be played on the TV, interviews with other mythical holiday characters and, several DVD-ROM games and activities. On the technical side, the disc features a 1.85:1 widescreen transfer of the film that preserves its original aspect ratio (a full-screen version is also available), the English, French, and Spanish soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound, and optional English subtitles are available.
