The Nutcracker and the Four Realms ~ Movie Trailer

The Nutcracker in all its various forms is considered to be a tradition of the Christmas season for many.
Clara receiving the Nutcracker. The party that features a most formidable Christmas tree that is too large for most homes. The rats, the prince, the sugarplum fairies. For most, a delightful memory or two is attached to this story. 

This year Disney is offering a new vision of  E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale “The Nutcracker.” The Nutcracker and the Four Realms showcases the wondrous journey of Clara, who finds herself in the mystical world of the Four Realms, home to a host of eccentric characters and no shortage of surprises. 



The film opens in theaters on November 2, 2018

All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world. Starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy, Disney’s new holiday feature film The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is directed by Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale.

The cast includes Keira Knightley, Mackenzie Foy, Eugenio Derbez, Matthew Macfadyen, Richard E. Grant, Miranda Hart, Sergei Polunin, Jayden Fowora-Knight, Omid  Djalili, Jack Whitehall, Meera Syal, Ellie Bamber, Misty Copeland, with Helen  Mirren and Morgan Freeman. 

The film is directed by Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston.
