I have viewed probably around 6 different film adaptions of this classic Christmas Tale.
Yet none have come even close to following the original Charles Dickens publication as this one does. It's almost line for line from the original book, which has always been heavily edited down in all of the previous screen adaptions.
The CGI Animation is Unbelievable! Crystal clear, excellent voice acting and character depictions based on the actors who play the characters themselves.
The facial expressions, the body movements, the colors, lighting, sound ....everything is excellent in this Disney portrayal of this classic Christmas story.
Yes, I admit every year I still watch the original black and white adaption because it is so unique and gives a really neat feel, but I have also made this Disney version a regular Christmas tradition in my house-hold every Christmas since it was released.
I saw it in Theatre in 3-D, and to this day it is the BEST 3-D film I have seen in a movie theatre. I never forgot how when SNOW was falling in the film, each and every snow flake was right in front of my face. It was as if I could reach out and grab one in my hand. That being said, this film is just as enjoyable playing it at home in my Blue-Ray/DVD player.
