The film is directed by Stephen Donnelly and features re-imagined songs from the late two-time Oscar and Grammy winner Leslie Bricusse. The music is arranged and produced by Jeremy Holland-Smith, who has also provided the original score.
The director Stephen Donnelly said in a statement that “It’s been a fascinating challenge to adapt such a beloved and often-told story. I think this version will give those who know ‘A Christmas Carol’ all the things they expect, but not as they’ve experienced them before. There are more than enough psychedelic, time-traveling, and musical surprises to keep those familiar with the story on the edge of their seats, while the authentic essence of Dickens has been retained for those coming completely fresh to the classic tale. I can’t wait to share this new version of ‘A Christmas Carol’ with the world and sincerely hope audiences embrace it this year and for many to come.”
Scrooge: A Christmas Carol releases in December on Netflix.
