The premiere date for Apple Original Films’ upcoming holiday musical, Spirited, has been revealed.
Theatrically, the film will premiere on November 11, while it will make its streaming debut through Apple TV+ a week later on November 18. It is directed by Sean Anders, who directed both Daddy’s Home films.
Set to be led by Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds and Elf star Will Ferrel, Spirited is described as a musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’ Christmas classic A Christmas Carol. It also stars Octavia Spencer, Patrick Page, Sunita Mani, Loren Woods, Joe Tippett, Marlow Barkley, and Jen Tullock.
Spirited is written and directed by Sean Anders and John Morris, who are reuniting with Ferrell after working together on Daddy’s Home. It is produced by Anders, Morris, Ferrell, Reynolds, Jessica Elbaum, and George Dewey, with Gloria Sanchez Productions, Maximum Effort, and Two Grown Men producing.
Ferrell and Reynolds both previously appeared in the Richard Nixon/White House comedy Dick in 1999 but shared no scenes and haven’t properly collaborated before.
