Disney Pictures has released the first hi-res image and the first video footage from Robert Zemekis' A Christmas Carol at the Cannes Film Festival.

Jim Carrey as Ebenezer Scrooge

Opening in theaters November 6th, 2009, the animated feature stars Jim Carrey, Cary Elwes, Bob Hoskins, Colin Firth, Gary Oldman, Robin Wright Penn, Tom Hanks and Michael J. Fox.

Ebenezer Scrooge (Jim Carrey) begins the Christmas holiday with his usual miserly contempt, barking at his faithful clerk (Gary Oldman) and his cheery nephew (Colin Firth). But when the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come take him on an eye-opening journey revealing truths Old Scrooge is reluctant to face, he must open his heart to undo years of ill will before it's too late.
