    DescriptionIt is the twenty-fourth of December. Mean old Ebenezer Scrooge sits in his freezing cold office shouting 'Bah! Humbug!' at anyone who dares wish him a Merry Christmas. But that night the miser has a terrifying visitor. Marley, his dead business partner who must wander the earth for ever to pay for his sins, comes with a warning. Scrooge will be haunted by three more spirits. The ghosts of Christmas past, present and future arrive to show Scrooge the hardship he has caused. Is he doomed to the same fate as Marley? Or can he mend his ways and learn to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas?

    Author Information
    Charles Dickens was born in Portsmouth on 7th February 1812, the second of eight children. Dickens childhood experiences were similar to those depicted in David Copperfield. His father, who was a government clerk, was imprisoned for debt and Dickens was briefly sent to work in a blacking warehouse at the age of twelve. He received little formal education, but taught himself shorthand and became a reporter of parliamentary debates. Dickens is renowned for his vibrant characterisation and atmosphere, especially of London and its inhabitants. His novels include Oliver Twist, The Old Curiosity Shop, Nicholas Nickleby, Barnaby Rudge, Martin Chuzzlewit, David Copperfield, Bleak House, Little Dorrit, Hard Times, A Tale of Two Cities, Great Expectations and Our Mutual Friend. Robert Zemeckis is a veteran film writer, director and producer. His credentials include the Back to the Future trilogy, Death Becomes Her and Forrest Gump . In 2007 Zemeckis began experimenting with motion capture technology for the film Beowulf. A Christmas Carol is now being brought truly to life with Disney Digital 3D technology and launches Disney's new studio partnership with Zemeckis.
