'A Christmas Carol' Will Be Reinvented as a Musical at Disney!

A new version of the classic tale A Christmas Carol is coming to the big screen!

Oscar-winning filmmaker Bill Condon wrote the script for the movie Marley and he’ll also direct for Disney. Three-time Oscar winner Stephen Schwartz, who wrote the score to Broadway’s Wicked, will write new music for the film.

Marley will “reinvent the well-known story by conveying it through the eyes of Jacob Marley, the deceased business partner of Ebenezer Scrooge,” according to THR. “Marley’s apparition, weighed down by chains and endless torment, visits Scrooge and foretells the man of his impending ghostly visits.”

In the classic Charles Dickens story, Scrooge is visited by the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present, and Future.

Oscar winner Dan Jinks is producing alongside Greg Yolen, who worked with Condon on Beauty and the Beast.
