You know Halloween has just past as the Christmas decor starts to appear. The world of film is not exception. Today Apple Original Films put us all on the good list, with the unveiling of the trailer for the highly anticipated holiday musical comedy, Spirited, starring Will Ferrell, Ryan Reynolds and Octavia Spencer.
The film is fresh take on the much produced Charles Dickens’ classic, ‘A Christmas Carol.’ For the first time ever, the hauntingly good tale or redemption is being told from the perspective of the ghosts with a musical twist. Apple describes the story as such: “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.”
The film comes from director Sean Anders (“Daddy’s Home,” “Instant Family”), written by Sean Anders and John Morris, with original songs by Oscar winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (“La La Land”) and production numbers choreographed by Chloe Arnold (“The Late Late Show with James Corden”).

Spirited will premiere in theaters on November 11 and globally on Apple TV+ on November 18, 2022
