This musical twist on the classic Dickens tale, “A Christmas Carol”, is told from the perspective of the ghosts for the first time. Ferrel plays the Ghost of Christmas Present, who selects one dark soul each Christmas Eve to be reformed by a visit from three spirits. But this season, he picked the wrong Scrooge. Clint Briggs (Ryan Reynolds) turns the tables on his ghostly host until Present finds himself reexamining his own past, present and future.
The film is directed by Sean Anders (Daddy’s Home, Instant Family), written by Sean 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).
Spirited, also starring Octavia Spencer, will be released on Apple TV+ on November 18th.
