Charles Dicken’s classic Christmas tale is adapted as a 3DCG animated, supernatural, time-traveling musical coming your way for the holidays.
Netflix has released a trailer and images for the upcoming holiday-themed release of its 3DCG animated feature Scrooge: A Christmas Carol – an adaptation of Charles Dickens' ageless Christmas story from Timeless Films and director Stephen Donnelly. The movie premieres on the streamer December 2.
The story is reborn in this supernatural, time-traveling, musical adaptation of the definitive Christmas story. With his very soul on the line, Scrooge has but one Christmas Eve left to face his past and build a better future.
“It’s been a fascinating challenge to adapt such a beloved and often-told story,” shared Donnelly. “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-traveling, 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.”
