We’ve got our hands on the first official trailer of The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, the upcoming fantasy adventure movie directed by Lasse Hallström and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale and starring Mackenzie Foy, Keira Knightley, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, Jayden Fowora-Knight, Matthew Macfadyen, Miranda Hart, Richard E. Grant, Eugenio Derbez, Jack Whitehall, Ellie Bamber, and Misty Copeland:
THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS
“All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother. 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.”
It kind of just feels like yet another Nutcracker ballet… That said, Disney’s film will reach a wider public. Anyway, it still looks great and am looking forward to seeing the film. And you?
The film will open in theaters on November 2, 2018.
Stay tuned for updates.
