A Christmas Carol (2009)
A Christmas Carol is a 2009 Motion capture animated movie produced by ImageMovers Digital and Distributed by Disney. It was Disney's third A Christmas Carol adaptation after Mickey Mouse's Christmas Carol and The Muppets Christmas Carol.
As with other adaptations of Charles Dickens's 1843 A Christmas Carol, the plot centers on Ebenezer Scrooge, a grouchy old moneylender, who is visited by three ghosts who try to make him a happier and nicer person.
