Apple Original Films is taking an unusual approach to generating buzz for Spirited: instead of the usual movie posters, they instead produced four behind-the-scenes images for what they're describing as a modern musical adaptation of Charles Dickens' famous Christmas song A Christmas Carol.
Will Ferrell, Ryan Reynolds, and Octavia Spencer are among the performers in the musical, and Reynolds wrote on Twitter, "For some reason, these are called iPosters." (It's Friday and my brain's in weekend mode, so I had to figure out the joke.)
Patrick Page, Sunita Mani, Loren Woods, Joe Tippett, Marlow Barkley, and Jen Tullock are among the actors who directed the screenplay. Sean Anders (Daddy's Home, Horrible Bosses 2) and John Morris co-wrote the script, while Anders is also an actor. Reynolds, Ferrell, George Dewey, Jessica Elbaum, and David Koplan also produced the film.
Spirited will launch on November 11, 2022, followed by a launch on Apple TV+.
