ABOUT THE MOVIE

Disney's A Christmas Carol, a multi-sensory thrill ride re-envisioned by Academy Award-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 was released November 6th, 2009 and stars Jim Carrey, Steve Valentine, Daryl Sabara, Sage Ryan, Amber Gainey Meade, Ryan Ochoa, Bobbi Page, Ron Bottitta. The film is directed by Robert Zemeckis.
