Here the old man sees what he himself had deserved as a child, what his being had called out for, and yet had not been given. By extension, these are needs for which his being is still calling out, even now. From there, he begins to hear the call of past details and people connected with himself.
They shone in every part of the dance like moons. Now, this is a classic Dickensian moment, in which the loveliness, the loveableness, of all creation emerges in one priceless, absurd singularity. The point is that Scrooge is beginning to hear the call of being: of every created thing, with its unique appeal. In Stave Three, Scrooge continues to emerge, coming out of himself. As the scene opens, a light shines from the next room, calling him closer.
I went forth last night on compulsion, and I learnt a lesson which is working now. God love it, so it was! He has begun to respond more naturally, more emphatically, to the calls all around him.

The figure of Scrooge is initially presented as a man locked into unhappy solitude and petty cruelty, someone whose ungiving, unyielding and resolute nature causes him no joy, but rather a grim satisfaction at having power over others, a power which he will wield in the darkest days of winter with particular determination, a power which goes against the very idea of what became known as the Christmas spirit.
This idea of Christmas, which the story itself did much to popularise, was already being preached about and written about in newspaper editorials when A Christmas Carol appeared in Christmas , in its new manifestation, would include the idea of giving as well as receiving, of looking after the less fortunate as well as eating well and spending time in good company.
For this reinvention of a tradition to become even more popular, an image was needed of a man who deliberately excluded himself from the cheer and the cosiness that the tradition, in all its fragility, implied. In the story, this man would be taken through a personal purgatory in order to emerge purified.

In recent years, Disney has been moving towards less passive princesses, but it might be time to consider moving away from royalty more often. The reasons for Disney's original "princess" brand are pretty straightforward.

Due to the wide commercial success of most of these remakes, Disney has quite a few upcoming live-action adaptations already slated for and beyond, including Mulan , Cruella , The Little Mermaid , and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
