FILM DESCRIPTION:

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.

 

From the studio that brought us the live action movies, The Jungle Book and Beauty and The Beast comes The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, a take of the original classic that was penned in 1816 by E.T.A. Hoffmann titled “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” which after an adaptation by Alexandre Dumas Père titled “The Nutcracker,” was set to Tchaikovsky’s music and the resulting ballet was commissioned in 1891 by director of the Russian Imperial Theatres. Premiering a week before Christmas in 1892. The old time favourite classic is joining a great list of Disney live action adaptations that have done very well at the box office, as well as receiving critical acclaim; and The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, is definitely one not to miss.
