Résumé de l'éditeur

The tale of Ebenezer Scrooge and his Christmas Eve full of ghostly visitors has been seen before, but never like this.

Taking their inspiration from the original book illustrations and Dickens text, Academy Award-winning director Robert Zemeckis and the rest of the team at ImageMovers Digital have employed the performance capture technology used in The Polar Express and Beowulf to create a new film interpretation of A Christmas Carol unlike any that has come before.

But the masterful cinematography that appears on screen is only part of the story. In truth, the film is the product of a wealth of spectacular concept artwork, star performances, and cutting-edge technology.

The Art of Disney's A Christmas Carol features every step of the film's creation, including production artwork, character designs, and final frames, as well as insightful commentary from the film's production crew and stars. It provides a rare glimpse into the creation of a unique holiday classic.

"You will be visited by three spirits..."

Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol is one of the most loved holiday tales of all time. But there has never been a film that truly embraced the wildly imaginative story until now. Academy Award-winning director Robert Zemeckis's A Christmas Carol is a unique combination of elements, bringing a loving respect for the original story together with a technology such as the world has never seen before. The Art of Disney's A Christmas Carol takes a look behind the curtain at the filmmaking process. Including everything from beautiful concept art and character studies, to comments from Zemeckis, the designers, and the amazing crew, to interviews with actors Jim Carrey, Gary Oldman, Bob Hoskins, and Robin Wright Penn, this book is the definitive trip into a holiday classic.
