The first trailer for Apple’s upcoming “Spirited” is here! Watch as Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell team up to haunt each other and sing snark through the most wonderful time of the year.
From director Sean Anders (“Daddy’s Home”) and featuring a script from Anders and John Morris, the musical comedy is also the latest project from Grammy, Oscar and Tony-winning composers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (“La La Land,” “The Greatest Showman,” “Dear Evan Hansen”) – so you know these show-stopping tunes are going to be your newest Christmasy earworms.
Oscar winner Octavia Spencer also stars with “Hadestown” Tony Award nominee Patrick Page.
Per an official synopsis of the feature: “Each Christmas Eve, the Ghost of Christmas Present (Will Ferrell) selects one dark soul to be reformed by a visit from three spirits. But this season, he picked the wrong Scrooge. Clint Briggs (Ryan Reynolds) turns the tables on his ghostly host until Present finds himself reexamining his own past, present and future. For the first time, ‘A Christmas Carol’ is told from the perspective of the ghosts in this hilarious musical twist on the classic Dickens tale.”
The new holiday musical comedy will have its theatrical run on Nov. 11 before streaming on Apple TV+ beginning Nov. 18. Anders, Morris, Reynolds and Ferrell also produce alongside George Dewey, Jessica Elbaum, David Koplan, co-producer Daniel Silverberg and executive producer Diana Pokorny.
