For the first time ever, Disney’s “A Christmas Carol” will be brought into the gaming world. On November 3rd 2009, three days before the movie hits theaters, you will be able to join Ebenezer Scrooge on his journey to find himself and learn the true meaning of Christmas.
For those of you who don’t know Charles Dicken’s tale, Ebenezer Scrooge, a grouchy and greedy moneylender who has devoted his life to being rich, undergoes a profound experience of redemption over the course of one Christmas Eve night. He is first visited by the ghost of his old partner, Marley, who warns him of the terrible fate awaiting him if he continues along the path he is on. Afterwards he has three spirits come to his home to help save him and teach him how to avoid the same horrible fate as Marley. The Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come all help Scrooge realize that he can avoid the future he has been shown. He eventually becomes a kind and generous man that embodies the spirit of Christmas in his life.
