About ‘Spirited’

While “A Christmas Carol” is a story familiar to most of us, “Spirited” takes this beloved classic to new heights. In the movie, Clint Briggs (Reynolds) is the Scrooge who is visited by the Ghost of Christmas Present (Ferrell) on Christmas Eve. Like in Dickens’ version, the Ghost of Christmas Present hopes to change Clint’s attitude about the holidays, however, this doesn’t go as planned.


Clint flips the script on the Ghost of Christmas Present, sending him on a wild journey through his past, present, and future. Rather than focusing on Scrooge’s perspective this time, the tale is told from the ghosts’ point of view. Along the way, there are plenty of holiday music pieces and several other unexpected twists. This is one holiday film you don’t want to miss!

The Apple Original film is directed by Sean Anders, who also wrote it with John Morris. Oscar winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul are the talents behind the original songs, while Chloe Arnold is the choreographer.
