Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell offer a new take on Charles Dickens’ famous A Christmas Carol in Apple Original Films’ new holiday musical comedy, Spirited, also starring Octavia Spencer.
Each Christmas Eve, the Ghost of Christmas Present (Ferrell) selects one dark soul to be reformed by a visit from three spirits. But this season, he picked the wrong Scrooge. Clint Briggs (Reynolds) turns the tables on his ghostly host until Present finds himself reexamining his own past, present and future. For the first time, A Christmas Carol is told from the perspective of the ghosts.
Spirited is from director Sean Anders (Daddy’s Home, Instant Family) and written by Anders and John Morris, with original songs by Oscar winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land) and production numbers choreographed by Chloe Arnold (The Late Late Show with James Corden). It’s executive produced by Pasek, Paul and Diana Pokorny.
Spirited premieres in theaters on November 11 and starts streaming on Apple TV Plus on November 18.
