                        Disney's press release from today's opening "Train Tour" event at L.A.'s Union Station:

                        ALL ABOARD!

                        “DISNEY’S A CHRISTMAS CAROL” TRAIN TOUR
                        AT LOS ANGELES’ UNION STATION

                        JIM CARREY and Director ROBERT ZEMECKIS joined Walt Disney Studios Chairman DICK COOK to kick off “Disney’s A Christmas Carol” Train Tour with a traditional opening ceremony, press conference, festive photo opportunity and an incredible 3D sneak peek of actual footage from the movie, which opens in theaters nationwide on November 6, 2009. The Train Tour will travel across the country with stops in 40 cities, offering visitors an exclusive 3D sneak peek of the movie as well as a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the making of the movie. It culminates in November at New York City’s Grand Central Terminal.

                        ABOUT THE TRAIN TOUR


                        ABOUT THE MOVIE

                        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.

                        Various displays give a behind the scenes look at the making of "A Christmas Carol." On the right are maquettes of Ebenezer Scrooge and Bob Cratchit. At center is a scale model of Big Ben.

                        More video screens show the technology and artistry involved in making the film.

                        Morph your own face into Scrooge's or those of other "Christmas Carol" characters.

                        Actual period clothing was used as a guide to create the digital costumes seen in the film.
