Today, Disney unveiled a slew of new and exciting things from their upcoming holiday film, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. Check out the brand new poster and images below!
Disney brings The Nutcracker to life with all the whimsical splendor it can muster in the new trailer for The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. The Mouse House has spared no expense in re-imagining E.T.A. Hoffman’s story-turned Tchaikovsky ballet for its modern slate of live-action fairy tale movies, based on the latest footage. Check out the new trailer below!
Nutcracker and the Four Realms was directed by Lasse Hallström (Chocolat, A Dog’s Purpose), before Joe Johnston (The Rocketeer, Captain America: The First Avenger) came aboard for reshoots. Lest anyone think this is a Justice League situation where the movie’s original director was essentially replaced during reshoots, Johnston only filled in for Hallström because he was busy at the time with another project.
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.
