Will Ferrell and Ryan Reynolds are bringing you a new kind of Christmas Carol with their musical Spirited, coming to Apple TV+ this weekend.
A modern-day retelling of the Charles Dickens story, Spirited casts Ferrell as the Ghost of Christmas Present, while Reynolds plays the jerk who needs to learn a Christmas-themed lesson. But Spirited puts a fun twist on this classic tale. It’s not just one person who gets this magical life makeover. Each year, the three ghosts pick a new “perp.” A year’s worth of research goes into crafting the perfect simulation dream experience for this perp, all to be experienced on Christmas Eve. On Christmas morning, the perp wakes up a completely changed person, and, because this is a musical, they sing about it.
Spirited is fun, entertaining, and surprisingly nuanced about complicated social issues. It’s already a new Christmas classic, and it’s not one you want to miss. Here’s how to watch the new Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell Christmas movie, including what time Spirited will be on Apple TV+.
