I was recently made aware of a movie coming out on November 22nd, titled “The Man Who Invented Christmas.” This movie is based on the real-life story of how Charles Dickens was inspired to create the characters and pen the classic, “A Christmas Carol.” I couldn’t help but think of what an awesome unit study this would make!
More information will be released soon, in the meantime, you can enjoy the official trailer below.
Synopsis: The Man Who Invented Christmas tells of the magical journey that led to the creation of Ebenezer Scrooge (Christopher Plummer), Tiny Tim and other classic characters from A Christmas Carol. Directed by Bharat Nalluri (MISS PETTIGREW LIVES FOR A DAY), the film shows how Charles Dickens (Dan Stevens) mixed real life inspirations with his vivid imagination to conjure up unforgettable characters and a timeless tale, forever changing the holiday season into the celebration we know today.
