There are many versions of the classic tale A Christmas Carol (including the excellent Muppet Christmas Carol and the original silent movie from 1914) but here we’re talking about the animated Disney version, voiced by Jim Carrey, Colin Firth, Gary Oldman and Bob Hoskins.
The story, regardless of the version you go for, remains unchanged: three ghosts appear to Ebenezer Scrooge on Christmas Eve to teach him the error of his ways and he must put things right with Bob Scratchett. Here we explain how to watch A Christmas Carol online, on your phone or stream it.
