It’s hard to believe, but in a blink of an eye the holiday season will be here. And the kids will be home for the holiday season and getting cabin fever with the cold weather. Between the holiday celebrations, we’ll be spending a lot of time in the theater, thanks in part to Disney. Their holiday release this year The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is hitting theaters in early November and the final character posters were just released. From the looks of it, we’re in for a magical ride beyond what the usual story tells us.
What can we learn from the new posters? Each poster highlights the main characters and secondary characters in their main roles of the film. We still don’t know if there is more to them in the different realms. But the character posters are filled with things like candy for the sugar plum fairies, ice and feathers or even spyglasses. Besides some powerful graphics hinting at each actors role in the film, they give us a little hint of the magic we will be be seeing unfold.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is based on the folklore and ballet we all grew up and loved, but there’s so much more to this story. It’s time to brush up on what we know of the old story, and to prepare ourselves for an adventure unlike any other we’ve seen before.
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.
