'Spirited' Trailer: Ryan Reynolds, Will Ferrell And Octavia Spencer Star In Modern Retelling Of Charles Dickens 'A Christmas Carol'

Ryan Reynolds, Will Ferrell and Octavia Spencer are giving us a dose of Christmas spirit this holiday season.

The award-winning actors will star together in the Apple TV+ Original Film Spirited, a musical comedy that is a modern retelling of Charles Dickens’ 1843 novella A Christmas Carol.

Here's an official description:

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.

The film is from director Sean Anders and written by Anders and John Morris, with original songs by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

Watch the official teaser trailer below:

Spirited will premiere in theaters on Nov. 11 and globally on Apple TV+ on Nov. 18.
