This week, Apple TV+ premieres its new big-budget holiday movie, Spirited starring Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell. Spirited is a modern musical spin on Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol story. Here’s how to watch.
In this story, Ryan Reynolds is Clint Briggs. Will Ferrel plays The Ghost of Christmas Present. In Dickens’ classic version, Scrooge is visited by ghosts of the past, present, and future to confront his own morality.
But in Spirited, Briggs isn’t Scrooge and it’s actually Present who has to look within. Rather than focusing on the Scrooge character, Spirited is primarily told from the perspective of the spirits.
In addition to Reynolds and Ferrell, Octavia Spencer and Sunita Mani round out the main cast. Spirited’s musical comedy format features original songs by Oscar winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
