In Marley's Wings, the Ghost of Jacob Marley sets the scene for a holiday musical (unveiled in 2018).  Marley appeared and appealed to Ebenezer Scrooge to mend his ways lest he suffer eternal torment in the form of chains forged by a life of greed and avarice. If Scrooge could truly change his ways for an entire year, Marley would not only be free of his chains; he would also gain his bona fide Angel's Wings!
