An official trailer has been released for The Man Who Invented Christmas. The movie is the latest to tell the story of the creation of a classic story, similar to what we saw in Finding Neverland with the creation of Peter Pan, and the inspiration for Winnie the Pooh we’ll be seeing in Goodbye Christopher Robin.
