The Man Who Invented Christmas centres around how Charles Dickens (Dan Stevens) created Ebenezer Scrooge (Christopher Plummer), Tiny Tim and a number of other classic characters from the timeless tale, A Christmas Carol, as he mixed real life inspirations with his vivid imagination, in what looks like a very amusing family film based on the trailer.
The Man Who Invented Christmas is released in the UK on December 1st.
