carol coverWho doesn’t know Scrooge or about the incredible journey he took on Christmas Eve? On Nov 16th, Disney released this classic tale – A Christmas Story – on DVD and Blu-Ray just in time to share the true meaning of Christmas.

From Walt Disney Pictures comes the magical retelling of Charles Dickens’ beloved tale – Disney’s A Christmas Carol, the high-flying, heartwarming adventure for the whole family. When three ghosts take penny-pinching Scrooge on an eye-opening journey, he discovers the true meaning of Christmas – but he must act on it before it’s too late. Complete with spirited bonus features, this exhilarating and touching Disney classic is destined to be part of a family holiday tradition, adding sparkle and heart to all Christmases yet to come.

OUR REVIEW

Over the years I’ve seen many versions of this movie and I have to say that this one is by far the best adaptation, mainly due to the acting and cinematography. Now, I’m not a big Jim Carrey fan but he was absolutely brilliant as Scrooge and the Christmas Ghosts. I didn’t realize he could look so mean!

My only concern is that this film may be a little too dark and scary for younger children like Kiana. Even Kacie who is usually okay with suspense-type movies had to look away during various parts . . . like when Marley died. When I did a little research on the origin of this movie I found out that this story really wasn’t meant for kids at all. It was a ghost story that people told during the holidays.

Of course, like all the other versions the moral of the story is generosity, kindness, and love for your fellow beings. And even though this wasn’t a warm-fuzzy family movie, it did get that message across.

So, if you’re looking for a masterful rendition of this timeless classic this is it. Disney’s A Christmas Carol.
