Hello, and welcome back to another edition of the Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia! This week, I’m bringing you a little bit of trivia from This Day in Disney History! Enjoy!
Did you know…that on November 6, 2009, Disney’s A Christmas Carol opens in U.S. theaters? Written and directed by Robert Zemeckis, the film stars Jim Carrey (his first part in a Disney film) in a multitude of roles, including Ebenezer Scrooge. Adapted from Charles Dickens’ 1843 story of the same name, A Christmas Carol is a 3-D film produced through the process of performance capture – a technique Zemeckis had previously used in his films The Polar Express and Beowulf.
Furthermore, did you know that the 2009 A Christmas Carol is Disney’s third retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic tale in 26 years. Disney released Mickey’s Christmas Carol in 1983 and later distributed The Muppet Christmas Carol for Jim Henson Productions in 1992 (which Disney later acquired the rights to).
What a perfect piece of trivia for today! I love “this day in history” type posts! Thanks for sharing, Mike.
We love Mickey’s Christmas Carol and my kids have been asking to see The Muppets version. I cannot believe we are already heading toward the Christmas season!
