This film is the third version where Marley is seen deceased. The first was the 1951 film starring Alastair Sim and the second was the 2004 television musical film starring Kelsey Grammer. It is the third film adaptation to open with Marley's death after the 1984 and 1999 television films. See more »
When Scrooge re-visits his old classroom; the ink markings and spill patterns are virtually identical on all the desks. The animators more than likely just placed several copies of an original desk throughout the scene. See more »
BEWARE OF BOGUS REVIEWS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. I HAVE NO AGENDA! I AM HONEST!
Disney's A Christmas Carol is a 2009 American 3D computer animated motion-capture fantasy film written and directed by Robert Zemeckis. It is an adaptation of the Charles Dickens story of the same name and stars Jim Carrey in a multitude of roles, including Ebenezer Scrooge as a young, middle-aged, and old man, and the three ghosts who haunt Scrooge. The film also features supporting roles done by Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Bob Hoskins, Robin Wright Penn, and Cary Elwes.
The film & its visuals and the performances of Carrey and Oldman are great its dark tones will scare smal ones. The 3D film was produced through the process of motion capture, a technique Zemeckis previously used in his films The Polar Express.
The film was released in Disney Digital 3-D and IMAX 3-D. The film however is one that has been made too many times. THE 3-D effects aside this version offers nothing new. Since most of us do not have 3-D at home then there is no need in purchasing this film. The Best thing about it was the 3-D and watching this in a theater.
If you want a Great Version of the film then I recommend the 1938 MGM Version in which this version closely follows
