Dickens gets a modern—and musical—spin with the upcoming Apple Original Films release Spirited, set to hit movie theatres November 11 and stream on Apple TV+ beginning November 18.
Inspired by A Christmas Carol, the film stars Will Ferrell as the Ghost of Christmas Present, who visits one dark soul each Christmas Eve, but this year's "Scrooge," Ryan Reynolds, flips the script and has the ghost reexamine his own past, present, and future. Watch the official trailer for the upcoming release above.
Spirited also stars Octavia Spencer, Sunita Mani, Tony nominee Patrick Page (Hadestown), Joe Tippett (Waitress), Marlow Barkley, and Jen Tullock.
