Enchanting New Trailer For Disney's THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS
Disney has released a magical new trailer for their upcoming fantasy adventure film The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. This wasn't a movie that I was initially excited about when it was first announced, but after watching the trailers that have been released, it actually looks like it's going to be quite a fun and entertaining movie. It also looks like it going to be filled with some pretty wild and stunning visuals.
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.
The movie was inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, which was famously adapted as a ballet by Tchaikovsky in the late 19th century.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms was directed by Lasse Hallström (Chocolat), and also stars Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy and features a special performance by Misty Copeland.
It will be released in theaters on November 2nd, 2018.
