Watch the First Trailer for Disney’s THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS!!

Just in time for the holidays, Disney has released the first trailer for The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, a new adaptation of the Christmas classic directed by Lasse Hällstrom (Chocolat). I for one am extremely thrilled.  Not just because Lasse Hällstrom is directing but also because I have always loved this story. Which reminds me I think it’s time I revisited this holiday story.


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 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. Starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy and featuring a special performance by Misty Copeland, Disney’s new holiday feature film “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” is directed by Lasse Hallström and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale.


To help celebrate here are 2 delicious Nutcracker themed recipes created in honor of the new trailer:

  1. How have I not ever heard about this? I gotta turn my TV on more often. I find it interesting they are pitching this a year out though.

  2. I just realized while reading this that while I’ve of course heard of The Nutcracker, I don’t know the story at all. I’ve never read it or seen a production. And I didn’t know there was a movie coming out! Will have to check it out.

I enjoy hearing your thoughts so please Leave a Reply
