Available on Apple TV+ from Friday, November 18, 2022, Spirited has managed to make a place for itself during this holiday season loaded with novelties: indeed, the same day Disney+ launched its highly anticipated Christmas film once upon a time 2. This obviously did not prevent subscribers from enjoying this comedy which revisits the work “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens exploring for the first time the perspective of ghosts. Note that Netflix will also follow suit soon with an animated version of the tale entitled The (Wicked) Christmas Carol.

Every New Year’s Eve, the ghost of Noel Present chooses a dark soul that the visit of three spirits will come to save. But this time, he made the wrong choice. Clint Briggs reverses the roles and it is Present who finds himself facing his past, his present and his future.
Directed by Sean Anders (Daddy’s Home, Instant Family), written by Sean Anders and John Morris, this contemporary rereading of just over 2 hours is served by a high-end cast composed of Will Ferrell, Ryan Reynolds, Octavia Spencer, Sunita Mani, Patrick Page, Marlow Barkley and Tracy Morgan .

Both light and very conscious, carried by repetitive but exciting musical sequences, #Spirited is like a Christmas tree so over-decorated that it almost topples over with each swirl, but which gives off such warmth that it is impossible to not appreciate it. pic.twitter.com/oR6OxwBpep

I really liked the musical called Spirited on Apple TV. I laughed the whole time. It’s a small bowl of freshness with magnificent sets, the self-mockery of Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrer. I advise you 😇

#SpiritedThe Ferrell / Reynolds duo happily hijacks – and with the relative bullshit that characterizes them so well – Dickens’ Christmas Tale in a not-so-dumb (well, yes, but you get the idea) version of the famous Christmas myth, fine choreographed and revamped 🕯️ pic.twitter.com/NhiaVtyvG4

Watched Spirited on Apple TV+ tonight and had a blast. I love musicals, Will Ferrell, Ryan Reynolds and Christmas stories. A sort of spin-off from Dickens’ Christmas Carol. Well seen, rhythmic and moving, with the girls we spent a superb evening. And the music👍🏻 pic.twitter.com/Tzrbjz0jea
