‘Tis the season! It’s a time for celebrating with family, friends, and loved ones while embracing traditions that include shared storytelling and watching unconventional holiday mysteries. Families are invited to join Virginia Otis and the Otis family on a thrilling adventure at a late 1880s English countryside estate in the new animated feature THE CANTERVILLE GHOST. On December 5, 2023, Shout! Studios and Shout! Kids will release THE CANTERVILLE GHOST on Digital, available for purchase and/or rent across all major entertainment platforms in the U.S. and Canada.
Join us on an Oscar Wilde adventure…THE CANTERVILLE GHOST tells the story of a modern American family that moves to their recently purchased country home, Canterville Chase in England, only to find it is haunted by a ghost. Effectively, Sir Simon de Canterville (Stephen Fry) has been haunting the grounds of Canterville Chase successfully for over 300 years, but he meets his match, Virginia Otis (Emily Carey) when he tries to scare out the new arrivals.
Directed by Kim Burdon (Stressed Eric) and co-directed by Robert Chandler (The Amazing Maurice), THE CANTERVILLE GHOST is the modern reimagining of Oscar Wilde’s popular literary classic and boasts a winning voice cast of Stephen Fry (The Hobbit films), Hugh Laurie (House), Freddie Highmore (The Good Doctor), Emily Carey (Wonder Woman), David Harewood (The Flash), Meera Syal (Dr. Strange), Miranda Hart (Spy) with Toby Jones (Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny) and Imelda Staunton (Harry Potter films). Poised to entertain kids, families, and animation enthusiasts, THE CANTERVILLE GHOST is a colorful animated movie adventure filled with humor and whimsical characters. The film boasts vibrant storytelling, a strong young female lead character, and important messages about curiosity, courage, friendship, love, and forgiveness.
