The magic of the Nutcracker is about to hit theaters. It’s only a couple of month’s away, but this year Disney’s holiday film title is paying homage to the holiday classics we grew up watching. Dancing swans, marching nut crackers and beautiful ballet await us all when Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms hits theaters.
While the base story of the Nutcracker we all know seems to be there, there of course a Disney spin. The main characters appear to be in a fantastic and magical place that only Lasse Hallström could dream up. From fantastic costumes, over the top scenes and new spins on the story, we can’t wait to see where the story will actually take us.
One of the biggest things we’re excited about with The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, Misty Copeland! She’s playing the Ballerina Princess, and watching her dance is enchanting enough to bring in viewers alone. But combined with the new twist on the classic ballet, we can only imagine this will be the perfect holiday movie this year.
Today Disney released the final trailer for the film as well as the official poster. Check out more about the film below!
THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS opens in theaters everywhere on November 2, 2018!

About the Nutcracker and the Four Realms:
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. In theaters on Nov. 2, 2018.
