First Trailer for Netflix's Animated 'Scrooge: A Christmas Carol' Film
"Am I on the only one with the power to change my life? To change the lives of others?" Netflix revealed the official trailer for an animated musical titled Scrooge: A Christmas Carol, the second major new update on this holiday story. The other one is also kind of a musical, Apple TV+'s Spirited featuring Ryan Reynolds & Will Ferrell. Produced by Timeless Films in association with Axis Studios, Charles Dickens' ageless legend is reborn in this supernatural, time-travelling, musical adaptation of the definitive Christmas story. On a cold Christmas Eve, selfish miser Ebenezer Scrooge has one night left to face his past — and change the future — before time runs out. The film stars Luke Evans (voices Scrooge), Olivia Colman (voices Past), Jessie Buckley (voices Isabel Fezziwig), Johnny Flynn (voices Bob Cratchit), Fra Fee (voices Harry Huffam), Giles Terera (voices Tom Jenkins), Trevor Dion Nicholas (voices Present), James Cosmo (voices Mr Fezziwig), and Jonathan Pryce (voices Jacob Marley). I'm not a big fan of the animation style in this, but the rest of it actually looks pretty good. I love the doggie. Should be a fun watch during the winter holidays.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Stephen Donnelly's Scrooge: A Christmas Carol, on YouTube:
"It's been a fascinating challenge to adapt such a beloved and often-told story. I think this version will give those who know A Christmas Carol all the things they expect, but not as they’ve experienced them before. There are more than enough psychedelic, time-travelling and musical surprises to keep those familiar with the story on the edge of their seats, while the authentic essence of Dickens has been retained for those coming completely fresh to the classic tale. I can't wait to share this new version of A Christmas Carol with the world and sincerely hope audiences embrace it this year and for many to come." –Stephen Donnelly
