Apple TV+ has released a collection of photos at its new film Spirited, which is a musical reimagining of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. The images offer a first look at the film’s stars Ryan Reynolds, Will Ferrell, and Octavia Spencer.
Reynolds takes on the role of an Ebenezer Scrooge-type character which puts him the crosshairs of the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Ferrell plays the Ghost of Christmas Present while Spencer plays Reynolds’ “good-natured co-worker.” The movie also stars Sunita Mani, Aimee Carrero, and Joe Tippett.
Spirited was written and directed by Sean Anders and John Morris. They previously worked with Ferrell on the Daddy’s Home franchise. When the film wrapped shooting, Reynolds shared:
“That’s a wrap for me on Spirited. Not sure I’d have been ready to say yes to a film this challenging even three years ago. Singing, dancing and playing in the sandbox with Will Ferrell made a whole lotta dreams come true. And this is my second film with the great @octaviaspencer… Perfect time for a little sabbatical from movie making. I’m gonna miss every second working with this obscenely gifted group of creators and artists. These days, kindness matters as much as talent. I’ve been lucky to work with folks who are flush with both.”
