You’ve never seen A Christmas Carol told quite like this.
On Wednesday, Apple TV+ debuted the first trailer for the upcoming holiday movie “Spirited”, starring Will Ferrell and Ryan Reynolds.
“Each Christmas Eve, the Ghost of Christmas Present (Will Ferrell) selects one dark soul to be reformed by a visit from three spirits. But this season, he picked the wrong Scrooge,” the official synopsis reads. “Clint Briggs (Ryan 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 in this hilarious musical twist on the classic Dickens tale.”
The teaser opens with Ferrell and Reynolds in silhouette, tap dancing away, before being whisked off in a musical Christmas fantasy.
With original songs from Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (“The Greatest Showman”) and directed by Sean Anders, the film also stars Octavia Spencer, Sunita Mani and Patrick Page.
“Spirited” opens in theatres Nov. 11 before hitting Apple TV+ on Nov. 18.
