An animated retelling of Charles Dickens' classic novel about a Victorian-era miser taken on a journey of self-redemption, courtesy of several mysterious Christmas apparitions.
Jacob Marley's ghost in this version does not explain why it is required that every person when alive should do good to others and if they fail to do so they get punished in death. Nor does Scrooge ask why spirits walk the earth.
Yes, quite dead. As a doornail.
Despite the film being set in the 19th century, scenes of London show old London Bridge, which burned down in 1666.
