As we saw in the #D23 Disney slate, Nutcracker And The Four Realms will be out from Disney for November 2018. The audience of D23 have been able to get an advance look at the movie – and the dance moves, some of which have been shown off on stage by Lil Buck. He will be helping with motion capture for The Mouse King.
Lil Buck is an LA-based dancer and model who specialises in “jookin” street dance. Spike Jonze used his cell phone to record an interpretive performance of The Dying Swan by Lil Buck and Yo-Yo Ma that went viral a couple of years ago.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is an upcoming live-action adaptation of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s The Nutcracker and the Mouse King about a young girl who finds a Nutcracker doll among the family’s gifts and is charged by her parents to take special care of it. The film is directed by Lasse Hallström and written by Ashleigh Powell and stars Mackenzie Foy, Keira Knightly, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, and other national and international treasures.
