About the movie

Here’s how “Spirited’” is described: 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. 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. 

From director Sean Anders, written by Sean Anders and John Morris, with original songs by Oscar winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul and production numbers choreographed by Chloe Arnold, this modern retelling is a sweet and spicy holiday treat.
