On November 2nd, a beloved story that has entertained on stage and in print comes to the big screen in THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS. Walt Disney Pictures has once again taken a classic known and loved by many and transformed it into a hopeful and potential cinematic masterpiece. Characters near and dear to us adopt easily identifiable faces, bringing the story to a whole new dimension for its audience. The question remains, however, if the story-line rumored to “tweaked” will be able to draw a loyal audience into its realm. Only time will tell….

THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS
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.
In the meantime…
