I still haven't picked out a Halloween costume, but today I am feeling the Christmas spirit. That's because Disney has released a new trailer and featurette for A CHRISTMAS CAROL. The film stars Jim Carrey as Ebenezer Scrooge and is directed by Robert Zemeckis (THE POLAR EXPRESS, BACK TO THE FUTURE, and FORREST GUMP). Gary Oldman, Bob Hoskins, Colin Firth, and Robin Wright Penn also star in the animated movie.

Most of us are familiar with the Dickens classic, so it would have to be something really fantastic to spark interest in yet another re-imagining of the story. 3D animation may just be the thing.

The second trailer evokes the feeling of Christmas cheer with upbeat music and joyful faces, before Scrooge comes in to ruin it with his all-too-familiar catchphrase "bah humbug." From there, we are taken through a bit of the adventure that is Scrooge's awakening process. The character of Scrooge seems to have taken on many of the traits that we love so much about Jim Carrey, specifically his wit and humor, and this is what is personally the most interesting to me.

In addition to the trailer, there's a featurette, available at Apple, which includes interviews with some of the cast and director Robert Zemeckis.

A CHRISTMAS CAROL will be released in Disney Digital 3D and IMAX 3D on November 6th.
