Just two more months until THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS dances its way onto the big screen this year! Today Walt Disney Studios released their final trailer for their upcoming take on E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic holiday tale of a young girl and her Nutcracker doll. Only this time the story has a bit of a twist…
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.
Now watch the final trailer!
As I’ve mentioned before, since Johnston directed CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, I’m really hoping for a number of fantastic action sequences in the holiday fantasy film!
THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS arrives in theaters on November 2, 2018!
