Growing up, every year I always loved seeing The Nutcracker. While the ballet isn’t completely holiday based, it is a holiday favorite and one that always makes us think of the holiday season. We love the dancing soldiers, the toys come to life and of course – the Nutcracker as well. This holiday season Disney is bringing The Nutcracker to the big screen in their new film The Nutcracker and The Four Realms. The preliminary images look stunning, and with the dancing talent of Misty Copeland combined with Morgan Freeman, Keira Knightly, Mackenzie Foy, and Helen Mirren we’re in for a treat.
Today Disney released a new 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.
