Here’s the featurette for a hybrid re-telling of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, featuring a voice cast of Simon Russell Beale, Siân Phillips, Carey Mulligan, Daniel Kaluuya, Andy Serkis, Martin Freeman and Leslie Caron.
The film opens on a Victorian family preparing a toy theatre for their annual performance of A Christmas Carol, which the grandmother narrates, and enters the imagination of one of the children in the audience as the cardboard stage and the story transforms into a fantasy realm, brought to life through the spoken word and modern dance.
Dance performances are led by former Royal Ballet first soloist and BalletBoyz founder Michael Nunn as Scrooge.
Documentarians Jacqui and David Morris of Frith Street Films co-direct and are producing. The brother-sister duo were behind 2013 BAFTA best documentary-nominee McCullin, as well as Attacking The Devil and Nureyev. Saboteur Media handles sales.
