“Disney’s A Christmas Carol,” a multi-sensory thrill ride
re-envisioned by Academy Award(R)-winning filmmaker Robert
Zemeckis, captures the fantastical essence of the classic
Dickens tale in a groundbreaking 3D motion picture event.
Ebenezer Scrooge (JIM CARREY) begins the Christmas holiday
with his usual miserly contempt, barking at his faithful clerk
(GARY OLDMAN) and his cheery nephew (COLIN FIRTH). But when
the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come take him
on an eye-opening journey revealing truths Old Scrooge is
reluctant to face, he must open his heart to undo years of ill
will before it’s too late.
“Disney’s A Christmas Carol” opens in U.S. theaters on November
6, 2009. The film has been rated PG by the MPAA Ratings Board
for scary sequences and images.
