Disney’s A Christmas Carol
There seems to be nothing better than the classics, and that’s just what Disney has come out with! This new version of A Christmas Carol takes a technologically advanced twist with it’s portrayal on Charles Dicken’s classic story. As an animated feature, one may assume the movie to have a child-like aspect about it – however, that is not that case. The new adaptation uses some quite amazing animation software and technology to create life-like characters from the actors that portray them. If you’re interested in the technology, I suggest looking into it!
For those unfamiliar with the story, A Christmas Carol is about the life of a man named Ebenezer Scrooge, who, even in the most practical situations, refuses to give up his money. This scrooge of a man, who frowns upon society, looks upon Christmas as a “humbug!” Hardly wishing to engage in the spirit of the holiday. It was however, inevitable, that the spirits of the holiday would inevitably visit him. Through the visits of three phantasmagoric beings, the spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, Scrooge is changed forever, opening his heart to the world, and dedicating his life to uplifting the Christmas season and the spirit of giving therein.
It’s a highly recommended film, and fans of the story won’t be disappointed!
