I’m excited to see how Disney is going to take the classic story of the Nutcracker and move it to a movie. I’m hoping that it will be a classic and relieve me from going to the ballet every year. I’m excited to see the Nutcracker and the Four Realms Trailer. But first isn’t this new poster just beautiful! I can’t wait to see how Morgan Freeman is going to take on a role.
About the movie:
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.
Do you have a Nutcracker tradition? We always go see it at Christmas time since its just tradition. I’m excited to see that Disney is bringing it to the screen. I think this is a perfect way to get kids and families with special needs involved in the Nutcracker tradition. I know for our family it would be hard to take my nephews to see the Nutcracker at the ballet. I’m hopeful this will be a true sensory friendly version.
What do you think of the Nutcracker and the Four Realms trailer? I know the cinematography is just stunning and makes me want to see more.
