In the spirit of Christmas, our throwback Thursday movie this week is of with no surprise, based on the Christmas theme.
As someone who truly loves Christmas, who sets up her Christmas tree in the first week of November and starts playing Christmas music at home, in the car and the office, yes I am quite crazy about Christmas so of course it goes without saying that I enjoy watching Christmas movies too.
Out of all the Christmas movies I’ve watched, there is this one particular movie that really stayed with me. I remember watching it in 3D back 2009 with a good friend and I loved everything about the movie, from the story line to the animation to the direction of it, I loved it all. The movie that I am talking about is Disney’s A Christmas Carol. Featuring the voices of Jim Carrey, Colin Firth, Robin Wright Penn and Cary Elwes, Disney’s A Christmas Carol is an American 3D animated motion capture holiday fantasy, comedy-drama that was written and directed by Robert Zemeckis.
An adaption of Charles Dicken’s novel of the same title, the movie was released on November 3rd, 2009 by Walt Disney pictures and received its world premier in London which coincided with the switching on of the yearly Oxford Street and Regent Street Christmas lights.
Released in both 3D and IMAX 3D, A Christmas Carol focuses on Ebenezer Scrooge (Jim Carrey), a cheapskate who really cares nothing for the people around him. Things take a twist of fate when the miser faces a frightening encounter with the ghost of his late business partner on Christmas Eve. Ebenezer is then visited by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come and they take him on an eye-opening journey to reveal the truth that he refuses to face.
Truly embracing what Christmas is all about, A Christmas Carol is one my favourite Christmas movies and I think you might just like it too! The trailer of the movie can be found below, enjoy!
