WITH DVD RELEASE OF ALL-NEW CGI 3-D ANIMATED FEATURE
A CHRISTMAS CAROL
Fresh Tale of the Timeless Holiday Classic Set for Release November 21
Following U.S. Theatrical Debut
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
LOS ANGELES, CA (October 10, 2006) – Top independent home entertainment company Genius Products will release BKN’s all-new CGI 3-D animated movie, A CHRISTMAS CAROL, on November 21, 2006. For the first time ever, the timeless holiday classic based on the much loved Charles Dickens story is presented in an all-animal animated feature film with new, original songs and music.
Featuring a unique holiday-themed package with a cover that “snows” when shaken, this must-have holiday classic is destined to become a cherished holiday keepsake that will enchant children and adults for generations to come. The DVD includes two bonus Christmas song videos and has a Suggested Retail Price of $19.95.
In this fresh telling of the timeless story, it’s Christmas Eve in a village near London and everyone is excitedly getting ready for the seasonal festivities. Everyone, that is, except for the miserly old skinflint, Ebenezer Scrooge. He hates everyone, especially children, and believes Christmas to be “humbug.” However, this Christmas he is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, who scare him into mending his ways. Scrooge ultimately finds the true meaning of Christmas as he celebrates with Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and their family.
