Time to snuggle up in front of the tube again with a Christmas film. And there is good news: Disney comes with a new version of A Christmas Carol. The Hollywood Reporter reports that the new Christmas film is about Ebenezer Scrooge, through the eyes of his business partner Jacob Marley. The title of the new film is therefore Marley. The story remains the same: Scrooge is visited by the spirits from the past, the present and the future. Yet there is something else. It will be a musical. The film is directed by Bill Condon who previously made the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast. The script is also written by the director and is completely finished. The music of the film is written by Stephen Schwartz. He has written music for the Disney films Pocahontas, The whistleblower of Notre Dame and the musical Wicked.
