The Boston Globe reported that filming for the Christmas movie "Spirited" started back in July. The Apple TV+ adaptation of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" stars Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell.

The Fairmont Copley Plaza hotel was one prominent filming location. And according to The Patriot Ledger, crews also filmed holiday scenes inside Braintree's South Shore Plaza this summer.

"Spirited" is one of six productions underway in the state, according to the Massachusetts Film Office.

Around Massachusetts, the presence of production trucks and film crews is a common sight as Hollywood continues to set up shop in the Bay State.
