Inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale
Disney have released a new trailer for The Nutcracker and the Four Realms – a sumptuous fantasy directed by Lasse Hallström and Joe Johnston and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale.
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. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms also features Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is set to appear in UK cinemas on 2nd November.
