How to watch Spirited, the new Christmas movie on Apple TV+

This week, Apple TV+ premieres its new big-budget movie for the holidays, Spirited starring Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell. Spirited is a modern musical twist on the classic Dickens’ A Christmas Carol story. Here’s how to watch.

In this story, Ryan Reynolds is Clint Briggs. Will Ferrel plays The Ghost of Christmas Present. In the classic Dickens version, Scrooge is visited by ghosts of Past, Present and Future to confront his own morals.

But in Spirited, Briggs is not Scrooge and it is actually Present that must look inwards. Rather than centering on Scrooge character, Spirited is mainly told from the perspective of the ghosts.

Alongside Reynolds and Ferrell, Octavia Spencer and Sunita Mani round out the main cast. Spirited’s musical comedy format features original songs by Oscar winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
