Ryan Reynolds kicked off Christmas Day by sharing a brief look at his upcoming holiday film, “Spirited”.
The new movie finds Reynolds co-starring with Will Ferrell in what’s described as a modern-day musical retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic holiday tale A Christmas Carol.
The film shot in Boston, with production wrapping in October; in addition to Reynolds and Ferrell, Octavia Spencer and Sunita Mari also star.
Rather than a traditional trailer, Reynolds referenced the fact that “Spirited” is being produced for Apple TV+ by sharing an iPhoto album.
Among the photos are pics of Reynolds and Ferrell rehearsing dance choreography, and Reynolds’ character giving a speech at a meeting of the National Association of Christmas Tree Growers.
Back in July, Reynolds gave his Twitter followers a brief sneak peek from the set.
Day 1 shooting with one of my comedy idols, Will Ferrell. You'd barely notice this was an @Apple movie!
