Disney has begun work on a new musical take on “A Christmas Carol” and is bringing the director from the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast, Bill Condon.
The new movie will be called “Marley” and is going to be reinventing the classic story, by conveying it through the eyes of Jacob Marley, who is the deceased business partner of Ebenezer Scrooge.
Bill Condon has already written the script and Oscar winner Stephen Schwartz has already written the music for Marley. He has previously worked on Disney’s Pocahontas and The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and along with Broadway’s Wicked. The movie will be produced by Dan Jinks and Greg Yolen.
