A classic Disney fairytale collides with modern-day New York City in a story about a fairytale princess who is sent to our world by an evil queen. Soon after her arrival, Princess Giselle begins to change her views on life and love after meeting a handsome lawyer. Can a storybook view of romance survive in the real world?
A retelling of the classic Dickens tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, miser extraordinaire. He is held accountable for his dastardly ways during night-time visitations by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and future. Written by

The song "When Love Is Gone", as sung by Belle, was recorded and filmed, but then dropped from the theatrical release (over the objections of director Brian Henson) at the request of Disney chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg on the grounds that it would be too sad for young children. This last-minute decision resulted in a jarring and obvious edit in the scene where it was removed, and leaves some confusion to Scrooge, Gonzo & Rizzo's reactions. The scene was restored in the VHS and laserdisc releases, but it isn't used in TV airings of the movie or the first DVD release. See more »
The Marleys make a reference to "teddy bears," a named derived from President Theodore Roosevelt who was born about 15 years after A Christmas Carol takes place. See more »
This is an excellent re-telling of Dickens' classic, with the added twist of Muppet humor and charm. The Muppet characters fit Dickens' characters so well that it would be easy to think he had them in mind while writing. The music adds a magic to the movie that brings out all the emotion that Dickens wrote into the original novel.
This will be hard to top!
