Picture from Disney’s A Christmas Carol
Overall B+

Charles Dickens' classic tale comes to life, this time in Disney Digital 3-D and Imax 3D. Thanks to some computer wizardry and many talented folks at Disney Studios, actor Jim Carrey's voice and body movements are transformed into the characters of Ebenezer Scrooge and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future (along with a few others).

Disney’s A Christmas Carol

Published in Reader’s Digest in December 1989, The Second Greatest Christmas Story Ever Told recounts the dismal and dark circumstances that led to the penning of Charles Dickens’s well-known Christmas tale.

How does Scrooge’s experience open his eyes to the suffering around him? What actions does he take? How can knowledge change a person’s perspective?
