The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Teaser Trailer

Experience the timeless tale you thought you knew in a whole new way as Walt Disney Pictures releases the official teaser trailer for their upcoming film The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. View trailer below.

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.

To be honest, I’ve never seen the Nutcracker stage play, but I’ve seeing many of its various adaptations (mostly the animated cartoon versions of it). So, i know about Clara, Drosselmeyer, Phillip, and the mice that usually accompany the tale of the Nutcracker. As for this teaser trailer, it looks quite an interesting and visual movie. It kind of reminds me of Disney’s other stage play film adaptation 2014’s Into the Woods. While its release is a long ways away, this movie has surely made a “bleep” on my movie radar for late next year. I’m ready to venture through the “Four Realms”….are you?

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms  arrives in theaters on November 2nd, 2018
