Fox News is gonna have to come up with some new graphics in the “War On Christmas” stories, because Santa’s getting an origin story that’s rooted in Viking mythology, called Winter’s Knight.

Sony Pictures will be teaming up with Kon-Tiki producers Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg and writers Ben Lustig and Jake Thornton to bring a script to life that’s loosely based on L. Frank Baum’s 1902 book “The Life And Adventures Of Santa Claus.” Presumably it features Santa as a Viking Warrior who fights yetis 364 days a year and then gives out their heads as presents for Christmas.

What? It would be so cool.
