Marley died in 1836, and the story takes place seven Christmas Eves later in 1843. The caroler at Scrooge's door sings Good King Wenceslas, but the lyrics for that song were not written until 1853. See more »

Although the opening credit sequence is basically the same, the typeface used for the sequence in the "letterboxed" version is entirely different. In this version, the credits are printed entirely in capital letters. See more »
Patrick Stewart and the supporting cast were absolutely incredible. I just wish I could view this movie in a widescreen format. It was absolutely gorgeous to look at. The Ghost of Christmas Past was my favorite segment of the movie. It was enchanting. I give this movie a very high recommendation.
